Norfolk, Virginia – Lead-based paint could appear like bring out of the past.

More and more people still live in dwellings constructed prior to 1978- when lead-based paint was banned.

The risks of lead paint

Lead can be adverse as it develops in the body and can be a health hazard.

The lead in old paint gets dangerous when paintwork is flaking off or knocked, peeling or chewed by children or pets, or when sanded or burned up in preparation for repainting.


So the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has brought out a new mandate for contractors, painters, renovators and those who work on lead related jobs to get ready to go back to school.

According to, Environmental Solutions Association (ESA,) “The older the home, the more you will have evidence of lead being present- and not just in the paint.”

Lead can also be constituted in old windowpane and piece of furniture like old cribs.

The recent EPA ruling asks contractors acting upon on pre-1978 dwellings, schools, day-care centers and children facilities to get new lead safety training and certification.

Yet contractors who believe they are being safe can inadvertently dispersed lead dust while renovating a dwelling or other facility.
