Lead

Renovation, Repair and Painting Program: Consumers

Common renovation, repair, and painting activities that disturb lead-based paint (like sanding, cutting, replacing windows, and more) can create hazardous lead dust and chips which can be harmful to adults and children. Home repairs that create even a small amount of lead dust are enough to poison your child and put your family at risk. For more information, read EPA's guide that describes why you should hire a lead-safe renovator.   

Need to hire renovator or contractor?  Make sure you find EPA or state lead-safe certified renovation contractors in your area.
