How The Health Department Can Help

 

Part of the each county health department's Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program involves detection of lead in the home. Whenever a child's lead level is over 20 mcg/dL or two consecutive lead levels over 15 mcg/dL, inspectors will go to the family's home to inspect for leaded paint.  Inspectors can help parents and landlords know just which areas of the house need cleaning, repair, or replacement, and can provide advice on the safest methods to use.

If you have questions about prevention of lead poisoning, detecting lead levels in your home, or removal of lead sources, you can call the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program in your county.
