Renovating your 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.
