Where Lead-Based Paint Is Found

. ----------

In general,
the older
your home,
the more
likely it has
lead-based
paint.


----------
. Many homes built before 1978 have lead-based paint.

The federal government banned lead-based paint from housing in 1978. Some states stopped its use even earlier. Lead can be found:
.
* In homes in the city, country, or suburbs.
.
* In apartments, single-family homes, and both private and public housing.
.
* Inside and outside of the house.
.
* In soil around a home. Soil can pick up lead from exterior paint, or other sources such as past use of leaded gas in cars.
