Let us help you rid your home of lead!
Up until 1978, lead paint was a standard product used in American homes. Lead is known for creating shine and resilience but is also linked to severe health risks. If your home was built before 1978, there is a high likelihood that your walls still contain lead.
If you have young children or fur-babies, lead can be disastrous to your family’s health. In general, young children and small animals seem to be the most affected by this unwanted heavy metal. As we all know, babies and animals explore the world by either chewing or eating EVERYTHING. Lead is known for being sweet and was at one point in history used as a sweetener. Because of the sweet taste, many babies and animals will happily eat lead paint chips, unknowingly causing extreme harm and damage to their tiny bodies.
Lead is known to interfere with the functioning of cells throughout the entire body. It works by chemically inserting itself into the place of other crucial elements of human life, including but not limited to calcium, zinc, and iron. It can cause:
- Developmental delays
- Weight loss
- Muscle weakness
If you believe you could have lead paint in your home, don’t waste time! Get your walls tested today to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Besides the potential health risks, paint also has a pretty rough reputation in terms of being a hazard on the environment. This classification is due to the cocktail of hazardous chemicals that make up most paints. Some of these chemicals include formaldehyde, arsenic, and Volatile Organic Compounds.
Volatile Organic Compounds are released into your home when the paint is applied and continues to be emitted throughout the lifetime of your home. These chemicals can be responsible for:
- Damage to the liver and kidneys
- Causing the mutation of cells
Children and the elderly are especially susceptible to the negative effects of these poisons.
It can be confusing trying to decide what paint will work best for your family. This is why Zenith is here to help. With almost 15 years under our belts, we understand the importance of customer health and the health of our environment.
