Lead paint was legally banned from use in residential painting in 1978. However, many homes built before then implemented lead-based paint—and the older your home is, the more likely it was built with lead paint. Lead is a highly volatile and toxic heavy metal unfit for human consumption. However, lead paint can be inadvertently ingested in a few ways. As homes age, the paint peels, cracks and falls to the floor where it can be easily ingested by children and animals. And lead paint particulates are emitted into the air through opening and closing of windows and doors, where they can be ingested via breathing.
