Renovating a Pre-1978 Home

Homes built before 1978 may have lead-based paint. When the paint deteriorates, or is disturbed during painting or renovation projects, it can pose a serious lead hazard especially for young children.



If you’re thinking to renovating your own residence, there are steps in order for you to protect your family by preventing the spread of lead dust.   

  1. Follow good work practices ​
  2. Consider hiring a certified lead abatement contractor or inspector before you disturb paint ​
  3. Consider hiring a certified lead-safe RRP contractor to do the work ​   ​​​
