PEEK around your home: Do you live in a home with peeling or chipping paint built before 1978? Do you live near a busy or dirt road? Do you bring lead dust into your home from your work or hobby? Do you have contact with products, toys, or jewelry with lead?
IF YES, then here’s what to do: Repair peeling paint, keep pregnant women and children away from home repairs.
