Lead dust can be found on floors, windowsills and toys which are easily accessible by children. Keep paint in great shape and clean dust frequently!


Leave your shoes at the door! Lead dust can be tracked into your home from soil outside contaminated by lead-based paint, pollution and leaded gasoline.


Pipes, faucets and fixtures are common ways lead finds its way to drinking water. Before taking a drink, run the faucet, do the dishes or a load of laundry. Use cold water for drinking and cooking and make sure the faucet's screen is clean!
