Lead paint removal
Up until the mid-1960s, lead was widely used in household paint. Lead is dangerous if breathed in or swallowed, especially by children. Find out how to identify if you have lead paint in your home and how to deal with it safely.
- Up until the mid-1960s, lead was widely used in household paint. It was most commonly used for windows, doors, woodwork and for some metal items. Lead can be harmful, as it builds up in the body and can be a health risk. Children are more sensitive to its effects than adults. The lead in old paint becomes dangerous when paintwork is flaking or peeling, knocked or chewed by children or pets. It is also dangerous when sanded or burnt off in preparation for repainting. You can find out more about the dangers and effects of lead from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) leaflet. This is primarily for people who work with lead, but contains useful information about how lead gets into your body and its effect on health.
- It is now illegal for companies to add lead to household paints. There are some exceptions for some listed buildings and for some very limited artistic uses. For more details on the laws on using lead in paint, visit the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) website.
- The age of your home is a good guide. If it has been built in the last 40 years, it is unlikely you will have any lead paint. If you live in an older property and your paintwork is quite thick, there could be lead paint locked into the older layers. This is not a problem if the paintwork is in good condition and you don't plan to redecorate. If you are unsure whether you have lead paint in your home, you can buy test kits from some retail or trade paint shops. If you suspect you have lead paint, follow the advice below on dealing with it safely.
