Lead Dust Levels Allowed in 2020 in California changed on January 4th
Allowed lead levels for interior floors and window sills was lowered in an effort to protect children from lead poisoning.
There are higher levels that are acceptable if you live in a HUD owned property.
Regardless of the allowed levels, children should be protected from all lead dust. Mental retardation from lead is seldom reversible in children.
The rules are very complex and their interpretation depends upon the government lead inspector. We use the lower standard to avoid conflicts for our clients and to protect the children.
