Lead Alert: The six step guide to painting your home
If you’re doing or considering any renovation or repainting work or if you live in a home built before 1970 with flaking or peeling paint, this booklet in PDF format will serve as an excellent guide for testing for lead, proper removal methods, preparing the surface for painting and disposal of waste.
Paint containing lead was used in many Australian homes prior to 1970, but those built more recently may also present a risk to your health. Ideally, homes with paint containing lead should be assessed and rectified by trained professionals. Anyone painting a house or doing maintenance that could disturb paint containing lead should avoid exposing themselves and their families, neighbours and pets to its hazards so it’s important to follow these guidelines and stay lead safe!
