Lead Poisoning Home Checklist (by the EPA)

The following questions will help you determine if your family is at risk for lead poisoning.

  1. Was your home built before 1978?
  2. Do you see walls, furniture, or window sills in your home with chipping or peeling paint?
  3. Do you children play in lead-contaminated soil near your home?
  4. Do you store food in imported pottery that contains lead?
  5. Do you work with lead in your job?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, have your home tested by a certified professional.
