Lead is a highly toxic metal that is all around us and one million children are affected by lead-poisoning. Lead was used extensively in household paints until it was banned in 1978. So if your home, building, school or day care center was built before 1978, there is a good chance that it could contain lead paint.
The good news is that when you know what to look for and what to do, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. As an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm, American Window Systems can guide you through the process of determining whether the windows and doors in your home contain lead, and if so, what you can do about it.
