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.

Caution, lead paint hazard.
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.
