Certification # LBP-F184859-1 – All EPA administered Lead-Based Paint Activities Program States, Tribes, and Territories
If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint.
In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint, but some states banned it even earlier. Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning.
Lead paint is still present in millions of homes, sometimes under layers of newer paint. If the paint is in good shape, the lead paint is usually not a problem. Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp) is a hazard and needs immediate attention.
It may also be a hazard when found on surfaces that children can chew or that get a lot of wear-and-tear, such as:
Windows and windowsills
Doors and door frames; and
Stairs, railings, banisters, and porches.
Be sure to keep all paint in excellent shape and clean up dust frequently. Lead in household dust results from indoor sources such as deteriorating lead-based paint.
Renovation, repair or painting activities can create toxic lead dust when painted surfaces are disturbed or demolished.
