    Nearly one out of every fourteen Iowa children tested has elevated levels of lead in their blood.

  • IT’S THE LAW...
    Contractors who violate Iowa’s lead-safe rule may be fined up to $5,000 for each violation.

We're Working Towards A Lead Safe Iowa

Iowa Lead Safety was founded for the primary purpose to help make all Iowa homes and properties lead safe by training contractors, realtors, landlords and homeowners in lead-safe work practices. We connect home and property owners with contractors trained to provide their services using lead-safe work practices, and we raise awareness of lead poisoning dangers through contact with our community members. Additionally, we also inspect homes and properties for the presence of lead.
