Fusion Finish Dallas Reviews the Danger of Lead in porcelain Bathtubs
Porcelain Bathtubs, especially those manufactured before 1984 can be a major source of lead poisoning in small children and adults.
By: Fusion Finish
Porcelain bathtubs, especially the colored bathtubs can leech lead into the bathwater when the glaze had been worn off. This is especially dangerous to young children that take extended bath times. A special was even aired about these dangers which forced bathtub manufactures to admit that even in bathtubs manufactured today they contain lead.
The Good news is along as the glaze is in good shape the dangerous lead is sealed away and not a danger. If you are concerned about the bathtub possibly leeching lead you can do an inexpensive lead test by purchasing the test kit from most any home improvement store. The test will look like a pen and it indicates the presence of lead by turning pink. If you find this to be an issue you don't have to worry. Simply call a quality bathtub refinishing company to reglaze or refinish the bathtub. It is an affordable solution to a potentially deadly issue.
