What can I do to prevent my child's exposure to lead?

Take these steps to reduce your child’s exposure to lead in your home/environment:

  1. Keep your child away from painting and repair work that disturbs paint, and make sure no paint chips or dust remain in the work area before your child enters.
  2. Pay attention to peeling paint: report it to your landlord if you’re a tenant so that repairs will get made (and call code enforcement or legal aid if there’s no response); and repair it safely if you’re a homeowner.
  3. Wash your child’s hands, toys, bottles, pacifiers, and any other items your child often puts in his or her mouth.
  4. Regularly clean floors, windowsills, and dusty places with wet mops or wet cloths to pick up any dust.
  5. Use only cold tap water for making baby formula, drinking and cooking. Let the water run for a few minutes first.
  6. Avoid using products from other countries such as: health remedies, eye cosmetics (i.e., kohl, kajal, surma), candies, spices, snack foods, clay pots and dishes, painted toys, and children’s jewelry. These items may contain high levels of lead.
  7. Remove shoes before entering your home.
  8. Any household member who does construction work or other work that may involve lead should remove work clothes before entering; wash them separately.
