Lead Paint

Protect Your Family From Lead Paint

Are You Planning To Buy, Rent, or Renovate a Home Built Before 1978?

 

Lead From Paint, Dust, and Soil Can Be Dangerous If Not Managed Properly

  • FACT: Lead exposure can harm young children and babies even before they are born.
  • FACT: Even children who seem healthy can have high levels of lead in their bodies.
  • FACT: People can get lead in their bodies by breathing or swallowing lead dust, or by eating soil or paint chips containing lead.
  • FACT: People have many options for reducing lead hazards. In most cases, lead-based paint that is in good condition is not a hazard.
  • FACT: Removing lead-based paint improperly can increase the danger to your family.

 

Simple Steps To Protect Your Family From Lead Hazards.

If you think your home has high levels of lead:

  • Get your young children tested for lead, even if they seem healthy.
  • Wash children’s hands, bottles, pacifiers, and toys often.
  • Make sure children eat healthy, low-fat foods.
  • Get your home checked for lead hazards.
  • Regularly clean floors, window sills, and other surfaces.
  • Wipe soil off shoes before entering house.
  • Talk to your landlord about fixing surfaces with peeling or chipping paint.
  • Take precautions to avoid exposure to lead dust when remodeling or renovating (call 1-800-424-LEAD for guidelines).
  • Don’t use a belt-sander, propane torch, high temperature heat gun, scraper, or sandpaper on painted surfaces that may contain lead.
  • Don’t try to remove lead-based paint yourself.
