Subject: Lead Poisoning information
Dear Mrs Carroll,
We have many fact sheets on lead poisoning in our website. Here are the links:
How would you know if you or your child is poisoned?  - Ceiling Dust and lead poisoning -  for other fact sheets -

Lead poisoning is a serious matter and children are more susceptible to lead poisoning than adults. If you're concerned about your daughter, perhaps you can go for blood lead level test when she starts to crawl. Before a baby crawls, people don't usually perform blood test unless someone if doing dry-sanding or heat gunning. Houses that are built before 1970 are subjects to lead-paint. Flaky paints are dangerous as they can be inhaled and more easily transferred to hand by touching.

If you require more information, feel free to contact us. I will send you as well our info pack on paint management.
