How do I know if there is lead paint in my home?

If the home is older than 1960, you can assume there is lead paint in the layers and on at least some surfaces. Homes built between 1960 and 1990 may also contain lead paint. We recommend that you be lead safe and protect yourself and others from exposure to renovation dust and paint chips. If you want to test for lead paint, there are simple test kits that can be purchased or you can send a paint chip to a lab for analysis. As noted above, you’re best to assume there is some lead paint and use lead safe practices.
