EPA's Lead-Safe Program

If your home was built before 1978, there could be products in your home that contain toxic levels of lead.

  • An estimated 30 million homes are at risk today.
  • Opening and closing windows and doors can generate lead dust which then contaminates your home.
  • An amount of lead the size of ½ grain of salt is enough to cause serious harm to your family.

Visit the U.S. EPA website for more information on lead. www2.epa.gov/lead
