Lead Removal Vancouver
Vancouver is a very nice city. It has a temperate climate, majestic landscapes and a beautiful mixture of historic and contemporary houses. These older houses fill the coastline and along the streets around the city, making the community enjoy its vibrant vibe and character. As there are many older houses, some that were built before 1978 might have used lead-based paints on their walls. Lead was also a popular material by manufacturers for toy paints, jewelry, pottery and other household items. Lead is but a metal that can be highly toxic when it slowly builds up in your body through repeated exposure. Although, anything pertaining to lead is already strictly monitored by the government nowadays, lead removal from one’s home continues to be a problem in Vancouver. Many pre-1978 houses still have remnants of lead found in toys, faucets and lead-based paints on their walls. As these homes age, it is obvious that lead exposure can become a potential health risk.

It proves to be more harmful to children because they are still at the stage of brain development.
