Old, lead-based paints are still present and creating problems in many Los Angeles County homes and businesses. Lead abatement is the process of removing lead-based paints along with the dust from these paints, making the building safe and healthy for people who live, work, or visit there.
Children are especially susceptible to the health hazards posed by lead exposure in old paint, but anyone can be affected over time. Lead is a cumulative poison, meaning the body does not easily eliminate lead when it is ingested. Instead, lead accumulates in the body over time, leading primarily to neurological and cognitive health problems which are irreversible.
