Protecting Your Home from Lead Paint
Purchasing a beautiful, old home to renovate and love is an exciting journey. There’s paint color to choose, walls to knockout, and floors to refinish. And, if your home was built before 1978, there’s lead paint to test for. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advises that if your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance that the paint in your home contains lead, including the paint in and around windows. Keep reading to see how ABC Windows, a New Orleans window replacement company, can keep your family safe from lead contaminates.
Testing Your Paint for Lead
According to the EPA, lead can get into the body through the aspiration (or breathing in) of dust containing lead particles from chipping or peeling paint or, in the case of children, through chewing or eating pieces of peeled paint. The best way to know if you have lead paint is to test it. Kits are relatively cheap and easy to come by; just stop by your local hardware store. If you do find lead in your home, it’s important to take protective steps.
