Lead in paint
We know that too much lead in our bodies isn’t healthy. Over the last

How will I know if there’s lead in my paintwork?
- The age of your home is a good guide. If it was built before the1960s and still has original coats of paint, there could be some lead around.
- Another clue is if your paintwork is quite thick – lead could be locked into the oldest layers. That’s not a problem if it’s in good condition and you don’t plan to decorate. If it has recently had a new coat of paint, this probably will have sealed any lead in.
- Modern household paints do not contain added lead and are not dangerous. So, if your home is newer, there won’t be any lead there.
- Testing for it.
