Angie’s List is marking National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week by joining the EPA’s “Look for the Logo” campaign and alerting homeowners to a danger too many professional and DIY remodelers overlook.
“Awareness is the key to eradicating lead poisoning,” says Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “The more homeowners know, the more likely they are to demand and be willing to pay what it takes to remodel and repair without endangering their children.”
“Of course do-it-yourself projects present the same dangers, so handy homeowners should be following best practices, too,” Hicks said. “This isn’t rocket science. It’s smart, common sense actions that anyone can do – and all of us who deal with older homes should want to do.”
