If your home was built before 1978 it may contain lead paint. Homes built before 1950 usually have the highest concentrations of lead paint. Repairing and remodeling painted surfaces in homes built before 1978, if done in an unsafe manner, can be hazardous to children. If lead dust is swallowed or breathed, it can cause lead poisoning.
If you are doing home renovations, you may be eligible to borrow a HEPA vacuum from the City of Milwaukee Health Department Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program free of charge.
You will need to use the same tools and follow the same safe work methods as for interior home repair and remodeling.
