Possible sources of lead at home

Posted on November 20, 2014 9:17 am under Premises Liability

Researchers believe children’s exposure to lead, even in small amounts, may result in physical and mental developmental delays. A very high amount of lead in the body, on the other hand, is considered potentially deadly.

A large number of lead poisoning cases have been attributed to contaminated household dust. Houses painted in the U.S. before 1978 might be contaminated with lead due to the use of lead-containing paints for homes. Other possible sources of lead contamination are:

  • Furniture
  • Toys
  • Traditional medicines
  • Traditional cosmetics
  • Pottery, china and ceramics coated with lead-containing glazes
  • Water pipes bonded with lead-containing material
  • Canned goods soldered with lead
