To find out if your home has lead hazards, and to repair hazards

Special training and in some cases certification is required to reliably determine whether there are lead hazards and to fix them.  Look in the Yellow Pages under "Lead Removal and Abatement" for a listing.  Be sure to ask what training the workers have had and what licenses or certifications they have.
