Quick Tips for Parents and Caregivers:
Lead can be found in dirt and dust. Leave shoes at the door to make sure dust and dirt stay outside. Wet-dust and wet-mop regularly.
Make sure your whole family washes their hands before eating.
Keep your child away from dust and peeling paint.
Check your child's toys for dust and peeling paint.
Check with your doctor about the best time to test your child. Usually children are tested at ages 1 and 2.
