If your house was built before 1978, your children and/or tenants may be at risk for lead poisoning

Elevated levels of lead in the blood can cause serious problems in children:

  • Learning disabilities – Attention deficit disorder
  • Hearing damage, speech, language, and behavior problems
  • Poor muscle growth & coordination
  • Other physical & psychological problems

Lead Poisoning is 100% Preventable!!

Reduce your risk:

  • Have your child tested for an elevated blood lead level with a simple blood test. Children ages 9 months to 3 years should be tested once a year
  • Have your pre-1978 home or rental property tested for the presence of lead-paint hazards
  • Learn and always apply lead-safe work practices when repairing, renovating and cleaning your property
  • Remember lead hazard reduction should only be performed by licensed contractors
