Lead in older homes
Lead-based paint was used in approximately 38 million homes until it was banned for residential use in 1978. Things you should know about when you live in a home that was built in 1978 or prior.
Lead-based paints, when damaged or compromised, can have a negative affect on a person causing disabilities and behavioral problems. Lead in dust is the most common way people are exposed to lead. However you can also be exposed through soil or paint chips. In most cases, lead-based paint that is in good condition is not a hazard.
