A majority of homes built before 1978 contain lead-based paint. If your home was built in the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, the likelihood that lead paint is present is even greater.

Lead-based paint is unsafe when it peels, chips, or cracks. Harmful lead dust is created when windows, doors, rails, or other lead-based painted surfaces wear away over time. If you see chipping and peeling, you may be at risk.

Soil around homes with lead-based paint may have lead chips, dust, or flakes in it. When your children play outside, they could be tracking lead into your house. Remind your kids to wipe and remove their shoes before coming inside and to be sure to wash their hands, too.
