Did you know children’s hands and toys can pick up household dust or exterior soil contaminated by lead? Be sure to move children’s outdoor play areas away from bare soil and the sides of your home. Wet-mop floors and wet-wipe surfaces indoors often to reduce the risk of lead exposure! #NLPPW2020 #leadfreekids
