Lead Exposure Testing

Lead exposure typically occurs over months or even years. As small amounts build up over time, serious health problems and even death can occur. The most common source of lead exposure is dust in older buildings. Home renovations can kick up this dust and make it easy to breathe in. Others who are at risk of lead exposure include:

  • Auto repair shop workers
  • Small children
  • Someone who works closely with batteries

There are sources of lead all around us, and common symptoms of exposure include high blood pressure, headache, mood disorders, and difficulty remembering. Before you rule out potential lead exposure, consider a few sources of lead you probably didn’t realize:

  • Soil
  • Household dust
  • Pottery
  • Toys
  • Cosmetics
  • Bullets
  • The workplace
    • Especially prevalent in auto repair, mining, pipe-fitting, painting, and construction
