Lead-based Products are recognized as potential health hazards and should be monitored and controlled if left in place. Lead is commonly found in interior and exterior paints. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. It can also be found in plumbing such as lead pipes or lead solder on copper pipes. Exposure to lead can have damaging affects, particularly for children less than seven years of age whose central nervous systems are still in a critical stage of development. Some health affects are delayed development, major organ failure, coma and death.
