You know that testing for asbestos while renovating in San Francisco is important to remember, but what about lead paint ? Many older homes still contain lead paint, which can contaminate your indoor air quality and cause health problems for you and your family. Take a look at this video clip on the importance of safely removing lead paint.
When you start thinking about a bathroom or kitchen remodel, the many benefits will probably occupy your mind. You should also consider the dangers, however, especially if you have children in the house. Ingesting or breathing in lead can be harmful for anyone, but it’s particularly dangerous for younger children. Exposure to lead paint can lead to learning disabilities, brain damage, and problems with the nervous system. Make sure your contractor is certified, and ask the right questions so you can get your lead paint removed as safely and effectively as possible.
