Davie, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Lead poisoning is a serious risk to a person's well-being, especially to that of kids. However, in Ohio, a number of children living in homes with lead paint were left without help from the government, based on a report from myfox28columbus.com. In response to it, certified Florida lead based paint consultant, AGC Environmental, offered some lead-based paint removal tips to help the residents of the sunshine state in similar circumstances.
According to the report, published on November 19, 2013, the city of Columbus in Ohio was spending $3 million to remove lead paint in low income houses. The priority of it, as the post stated, were those homes with children with high level of lead in their blood.
However, the report suggested that several of those kids who were supposed to get help were left unattended. It elaborated that many applications for lead paint removal were passed to the city's program but due to a process in disarray many were passed up.
Here's an excerpt from that report.
“The City of Columbus is spending $3 million to get rid of lead paint in homes of low income families, however ABC 6 Investigators found some families have been left in limbo for years.
“Lead Safe Columbus” says it’s supposed to be a priority to remove the poisonous paint from homes of children with high levels of lead in their blood. ABC 6 Investigators reviewed dozens of applications from homeowners and found a pattern of disorganization.”
AGC Environmental stated that lead-based paint is a major source of poisoning among children. Exposure to it, it said, could affect adults as well.
Particularly, it could cause irreversible brain damage, impair mental functioning and delay mental and physical development of children, the Florida lead-based paint consultant cited. In adults, it pointed out that it could cause irritability, poor muscle coordination, and nerve damage to the sense organs.
Given all those health threats, AGC Environmental stressed that lead paint inspection and abatement are truly needed, especially in houses where there are kids. However, it stressed that those processes must only be implemented by expert contractors and firms, else, the problem could get worse. And being an EPA certified Florida lead-based consultant, it assured that it could offer the kind of services that are exactly needed.
Specifically, the firm said that it is capable of delivering the Chapter 7 lead-based paint inspections and Chapter 5 Risk Assessment in accordance with the federal law. With its help, it added that any client could also find the best-qualified service providers for it.
