ON JANUARY 4, 2020 THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA LOWERED THE ALLOWED LEVELS OF LEAD IN DUST.
This was done for interior floors and window sills in an effort to protect children from lead poisoning.
There are higher levels that are acceptable if you live in a HUD owned property.
The rules are very complex and their interpretation depends upon the government lead inspector. We us the lower standard to after conflict for our clients and to protect the children.
