Handling Lead-Based Paint Markings 

If a city inspector from the Department of Health has already entered your apartment or residential unit, they may have stamped certain areas to mark where lead-based paint has been found. If you have markings of lead-based paint, those areas must be corrected according to NYC DOH standards using a licensed lead abatement firm. 

Health and Safety Standards 

According to the DOHMH (Department of Health – New York City), a child with a blood lead level of 3.5 µg/dL (3.5 micrograms per deciliter) or greater must have further testing and monitoring conducted. Often, New York City agencies begin testing the child’s home and/or school.

If the testing finds any lead-based paint or positive areas, they will require the homeowner or landlord to fix it immediately with a licensed firm. This is followed up by requirements for third-party licensed testing.
