Childproof Your Home Improvements
The Danger Lead paint hazards have not gone away. If your home or apartment was built before 1978, unqualified workers could spread lead paint dust. Even doing a small job.
- Kids: Lead exposure can cause lower intelligence, behavior problems and learning disabilities.
- Pregnant women: Lead paint dust can be harmful to your developing fetus.
- All adults: Exposure to lead paint dust can cause nervous system effects, high blood pressure, fertility problems, and even kidney effects.
The Renovate Repair and Painting Rule The EPA is requiring that contractors be a EPA Certified Renovation Firm and Lead-Safe Certified.
- Contractors include: renovators, electricians, HVAC specialists, plumbers, painters and maintenance staff who disrupt more than six square feet of lead paint. • This rule also covers schools, day care centers, or any buildings where children gather.
The Solution Protect your family and loved ones.
- Make sure to hire a contractor who is Lead-Safe Certified. It may cost just a little more but you’ll get the job done right.
Science and Technology
EPA, its federal partners at the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and private organizations have conducted and used lead research and applied science to:
- Support federal policies through sound science and analysis,
- Determine the linkage between environmental lead levels and children’s blood lead levels,
- Assess the extent of lead and lead hazards in the United States,
- Evaluate ways to reduce children’s lead exposure, and
- Foster the development of better ways to identify and control lead hazards to minimize childhood lead poisoning exposures and health effects.
