Lead Based Paint
While lead based paint has been illegal in the marketplace since the late 1970s, there are many older homes that have lead paint in them. Most of us think of white paint as the most risky color, but lead wasn’t added to just white paint. It helped paint flow onto almost every surface more effectively.
Because lead has such significant health implications, you want to be sure your older home is a safe environment. The only issue isn’t flaking paint. Dust can also be a problem.
