Reducing Lead Exposure

In general, the following are practices that will help limit exposure to lead:

  • Remove shoes when entering your home.

  • Reduce your exposure to tobacco smoke.

  • Wash your children’s hands after playing outside.

  • Take the necessary precautions if you suspect your home may contain lead-based paint.

  • Brush your pet often and outside if possible.

  • Wash all fruit and vegetables before eating them.

  • Keep your home free of dust and dirt.

  • Be aware of consumer alerts issued by the government about toys and other consumer projects that contain lead.

  • Run your cold water tap first thing in the morning or any time your system hasn’t been used in a while to dispose of possible lead build-up in your pipes.

  • Use only cold water for cooking, drinking and making baby formula since hot water can contain higher quantities of lead.

  • If processing meat that has been shot with lead bullets, take caution and trim generous distances from wound channels.
