Prior to 1978, almost all paint produced in the United States contained some amount of lead. It was most commonly added to paint to enhance a particular pigment, but was also used to increase durability, resist moisture, and speed up drying. However, due to the health risks of lead-based paint, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) banned lead paint in 1977 for future use in residential and public properties and public buildings. In April of 2010 the US Environmental Protection Agency required that all laborers or renovators working in structures built before 1978 and disturbing more than six square-feet of lead paint inside the home or 20 square feet outside the home be certified. It is dangerous spend time in an environment that has lead containing materials. Lead paint becomes hazardous when it is deteriorated or disturbed, creating dust and loose particles. Intact lead paint is not a hazard.
