Lead-Safe Home Projects Workshop
Wednesday November 16th 6:30-8:00PM

Before scraping, sanding, or remodeling any painted surface in pre-1978 housing, check out this class! It’s great for people who want to do a small project that may involve exposure to lead paint, such as sanding down an old window frame or a reused door with potential lead paint, or a small renovation project in an older home. The class will also discuss the requirements for hiring certified contractors to work on pre-1978 housing. Eligible participants will receive a free kit of testing and working materials, as well as valuable information on protecting your family from lead exposure during home renovations.
