Lead | Print |

Lead is a common metal found throughout the environment in lead-based paint, soil, air, household dust, food, certain types of pottery, etc. It is especially dangerous to young children, expectant mothers and their fetuses. Our office collects samples of paint and dust in the homes of children diagnosed with elevated lead blood levels and analyzed for lead content. If there is lead present in the home, the property owner is advised of mitigation methods to reduce the exposure of children to lead in the home.
