Schools in the Washington, D.C. area built before 1978 may contain lead paint. When the paint chips or flakes off, dust and vapors can be inhaled by students. Lead paint exposure causes damage to the brain and nervous system in both adults and children, but the effect on children is much more pronounced and can lead to serious developmental delays.

Older homes often contain lead paint, too. Keep your home safe for your children in the Washington, D.C. area. Call Green Environmental Strategy, Inc. to remove lead from your trim and walls.
