What makes lead paint hazardous?

Although the United States banned lead based paint in 1978, many homes built before the ban still contain this potentially dangerous element and contaminated building materials.

Exposure to lead poses the greatest risk to toddlers and small children. Deterioration, cleaning and renovation projects often stirs up lead based dust which may be inhaled or ingested without proper protections. Prolonged exposure to lead dust can cause serious health problems for adults, children and pets.
