We had high lead levels in the house from lead paint on the back door and other enameled surface. The dogs scratched and trod it through the house, baby crawled around and got exposed. It's a horrible feeling for new parents to fail their child like that. Fortunately our daughter is ok. But it's startling the general ignorance and nonchalance of people doing DIY renovations on old homes in regards to lead and asbestos. Australia needs to regulate their removal by home owners, not just professionals.
