Lead Safe Roanoke would like to make your home lead safe for you and your children. Homes and apartments built before 1978 may have paint that contains high levels of lead. Lead from paint chips (which you can see) and dust (which you cannot always see) can pose serious health hazards to residents, especially for young children, if not taken care of properly.
The City of Roanoke’s Lead Safe Roanoke Program can assist Roanoke City homeowners and residents with lead based paint hazards present in their homes. This service may include lead dust cleaning, painting, or replacement of surfaces contaminated with lead based paint.
