Most homes over 30 years do have LEAD in them. Lead is present in the paint, plumbing and possibly tub or sink. I am not sure that it would be cost effective to remove all the lead paint in a house. However all chipping and cracking paint must be replaced. Old wooden windows can be replaced to eliminate the largerst chipping paint problem. If you keep up the paint in a house you should not have a problem. I personally do not think lead will have to be rmoved from older houses, as long as it is not chipping. Beause there are too many older houses.
