Tip: Lead Paint Problems

Today's tip comes from Saint. Louis contractor Hamtil Construction LLC via Hometalk.com. It is important to heed lead paint warnings when doing remodels at home. Sanding, knocking down walls, or demolishing lead-paint-covered surfaces can result in elevated lead levels in blood. For more, read this EPA pamphlet on protecting your family from lead paint.
