Do I need to worry about old lead paint underneath lead-free layers painted over it?

Category: Home Painting

A fully encapsulated house poses no threat, but once the paint starts to deteriorate, the risk of lead dust is probable. If the house is showing signs of paint failure, such as peeling and blistering, then the paint may very likely be releasing lead dust. If we are painting a house and disturb any lead paint, we are required by law to follow all EPA RRP and OSHA rules.
