As the weather changes, more of us may be doing some work on our homes.
If re-painting is part of that to-do list, there's a potential danger we need to be aware of...lead-based paint.
Homes built before 1978 may have lead-based paint on them.
Lead-based paint becomes dangerous, especially for children, when it chips, deteriorates and produces dust, or gets into the soil.
Lead-based paint that is in good condition is usually not a hazard.
