What is lead?

Lead is a poisonous metal that was used in building construction and in the making of other household paints prior to 1978. Although its use has been banned, lead still remains a hazard in many places. When something with lead in it starts to deteriorate, it becomes dust, which is poisonous if you breathe it in or eat it. Lead can be found on painted surfaces inside and outside of the dwelling.

Lead is usually found in the following locations:

  • Window sills & Window frames
  • Door Frames & Door jambs
  • Railings
  • Soil & Steps
