|Long-time residents and newcomers alike face lead poisoning in New Orleans|
There is hope, though: neighborhoods are coming together to cover backyards, clean playgrounds, and ensure that all work in the city is done smartly and safety. During these efforts, well-trained renovators and contractors are crucial; families are acutely aware of the importance of proper lead removal strategies, and the demand for EPA Certified Lead Renovators is high. With determination and proper techniques, the city is working to reclaim poisoned neighborhoods and protect children from lead exposure.
