It’s National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week. I encourage everyone to become super-well-informed about the potential lead hazards in our homes. Anyone in a new-old house or anyone buying vintage stuff should spend quality time on the EPA’s Lead Poisoning Prevention website to understand their key findings and advice on dealing with this important safety issue. You can also see additional information and links on our Be Safe / Renovate Page, which includes a list of some of other places you might find lead in your house that have come up on the blog over the years; for example, my May 2016 story spotlights the potential lead hazards in old porcelain enamel bathtubs and sinks and ceramic tile of any age.
