LEAD PAINT CAN BE LETHAL PASADENA

Beware of Lead

If you are planning any painting or remodeling project in Pasadena and your house was built before 1978, then stop before you do anything. You may have lead paint in your home. Particles of lead can be breathed in which is a health concern for adults and particularly children. Dust and fumes can be damaging and extra precautions must be taken.

Painting companies and professional painters are aware of potential problems with lead in older houses but as a homeowner you may be ignorant. For the safety of your family, don’t go ahead with your painting or remodeling project without checking for the presence of lead first.

Your local health department can help with information on how to check for lead and handle it safely.
