Bathtub Refinishing Seals Away Lead

Rusty water flows from the tap into the bathtub

Bathtub refinishing is a great way to seal off the Dangerous lead that can leach into your bathwater. Especially vulnerable are children with less body weight so the parts per million of lead is more poisonous and children love the extended play time that bath time usually brings. With this play time it makes sense that children will put their hands in their mouths and not only contact lead through the skin but actually ingest this unintentionally.

Please understand, I’m not trying to scare you or make a mountain out of a mow hill. However, the public needs to be educated about the potential lead poisoning from worn or damaged porcelain bathtubs. I urge you to NOT take my word for it but simply go to youtube and search bathtub lead poisoning. Among the other videos you will find a 60 minutes investigative report that tells of a Family that had to overcome their children’s lead poisoning and it was found that the bathtub was the cause. ( I linked the video here)

If you watch the video you will see exactly what I am speaking about.
The important thing to remember is that the lead can be sealed safely away by a professional bathtub refinishing technician. The synthetic porcelain coating is a great remedy to make your bathtub look great, update your bathroom and most importantly keep your family safe! Bathtub Refinishing Dallas
