⚠️ Paint projects in older homes

Homes built before 1978 may have toxic lead-based paint.

Why it matters: Lead-based paint is a health hazard and must be handled properly.

🧠 In the know: Let’s hear from paint pro Andrey —>

When dealing with lead-based paint, there are a couple of things you can do.

  1. Hire a company with lead paint certification to do lead abatement. This is expensive but may be necessary in some cases.
  2. Seal the surface with a lead encapsulating paint. This is a multi-step process but is cheaper than full abatement.

🚨 Sealing is NOT recommended for traffic areas (floors and rails) or areas that rub (drawers and moving windows). Those areas require abatement.

🚨 Do NOT scrape or sand lead-based paint.

For your smart homeowner list:

✅ For pre-1978 homes, get peace of mind with a lead-based paint test kit.

👉 Pre-1950 homes have a higher risk
