Lead Poisoning

Lead poisoning can cause a whole battery of health problems for you and your children, so don’t let lead hide in your home any longer! Hire Affordable Lead Inspections to detect it, so you can have it removed from your home.

How do you get lead poisoning?
Lead poisoning is caused by swallowing or breathing lead, and becomes poison when it gets in the body.

What are the symptoms?
  • Hurt the brain, kidneys, and nervous system
  • Slow down growth and development
  • Make it hard to learn
  • Damage hearing and speech
  • Cause behavior problems
Children are at higher risk and have different symptoms than adults.
  • Upset stomach
  • Trouble eating or sleeping
  • Headache
  • Trouble paying attention
How do you know if your child has been exposed?
Regular lead testing is done during well checks for children between 9 months and 6 years of age, but if you suspect that your child may be exposed to lead regularly, ask your doctor.

Don’t wait for symptoms to show up!
If your home, or your child’s school or daycare were built before 1978, call Affordable Lead Inspections and make sure to get a lead test done on your child, before it cases irreversible problems like, hyperactivity, hearing problems, slowed growth and even reproductive problems.
