The EPA is has deemed this week (October 19th-25th) National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week. Join Home Run Solutions in spreading awareness of the potential dangers of lead-based paint in homes and childcare facilities that were built prior to 1978. Deteriorating lead-based paint in the form of chips and dust is hazardous and presents the biggest risk to young children, pregnant women, and the elderly. Even the smallest amount of lead dust can cause harmful results that have been linked to behavior problems and learning disorders.
