The Houston Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program provides services which assist lower-income households in identifying, removing, or stabilizing lead-based paint hazards at no cost to the client. The overall goal of the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control program is to provide lead-safe housing to the residents of City of Houston, especially those households with children under the age of 6.
The Centers for Disease Control reports: “Today, childhood lead poisoning is considered the most preventable environmental disease among young children, yet approximately half a million U.S. children have blood lead levels above 5 micrograms per deciliter, the reference level at which CDC, recommends public health actions be initiated. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and CDC are committed to eliminating this burden to public health.” The CDC reports that today at least 4 million households have children living in them that are being exposed to high levels of lead.
James M. Barthel, creator of ECOBOND® - Lead Defender® stated, “We enthusiastically embrace a mission of restoring our environment and protecting children and families from the hazards of lead with our patented lead paint treatment technology. We are pleased that it is now being recommend for use to the approved construction contractors recommended by the City of Houston Health Department.”
Barthel made the strategic decision to add Bitrex® Bitterant Technology, which is the bitterest substance known, to their lead paint treatment product, ECOBOND® to reduce accidental ingestion of potentially harmful materials. This creates an added safety barrier to further protect children from lead poisoning by reducing the amount of paint chips or dust a child may ingest.
