Identifying and properly handling lead-based paints is of major concern among Public Housing Authorities (PHA) and the entire real estate market. According to HUD, about 25% of the nation’s housing stock (some 24 million homes) contain a significant amount of lead-based paint hazards (i.e. deteriorating lead paint or lead-contaminated dust). As with asbestos, locating and properly managing lead-based paint in a building is the most logical answer to reducing the health threat posed by lead.
