Does Your Home Contain High Levels of Lead Dust?
Maine CDC has produced a video which shows how to do a free home lead dust test that is offered by its Environmental & Occupational Health Programs. The video is posted at www.youtube.com/mainepublichealth
This quick and easy test is a great way to find out if you have dust from lead paint in your home. Knowing if your home has dust from lead paint helps you protect your children from lead poisoning.
