Lead Paint in your home

The mere presence of lead paint in your home doesn’t necessarily indicate a health risk. If the paint is still in good shape, it can be encapsulated and repainted to protect residents from exposure. The danger from lead paint increases when it’s peeling or otherwise deteriorating, which can lead to the inhalation of lead dust or the swallowing of lead-based paint chips. It is always wise to hire an EPA-certified contractor even if you are only removing a relatively small amount of lead paint. In other words: lead paint removal is not a suitable project for average do-it-yourself homeowners. Proper, safe execution of this job requires not only specialized training but specialized tools and materials as well.

Help with landlords not responding to a mold problem
The TN Department of Health does not have authority to inspect and require landlords to address mold issues in rental property.  However, in some cases, local building codes may help to address the problems that contribute to mold growth. If your local codes department can provide assistance for problems such as unaddressed leaking pipes, roof leaks, sagging ceilings, sunken floors, poor drainage, you can accomplish the first step toward addressing your mold problem. If a water leak is endangering electrical outlets, contact the State Fire Marshall’s Office for guidance. If all else fails, see how to file a complaint with the Tennessee Division of Consumer Affairs
