This report presents the findings of a literature review on information concerning lead in dust within residential carpets, furniture (including upholstery and window treatments), and forced air ducts. Research areas include: (1) determining amounts of lead in dust within these surfaces (including dust collection techniques), (2) characterizing the association between lead contamination of dust within these surfaces and children's blood-lead concentration, and (3) mitigating lead-contaminated dust within these surfaces that pose a potential lead exposure to residents, especially children. This review is in support of research by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in their efforts to address Congressional mandates within Title X (specifically, Section 1051). While 59 documents provided information on dust and lead exposure associated with residential carpet, only 11 documents provided information relative to residential furniture, upholstery, and window treatments, and only eight documents provided information relative to residential air ducts. This information was typically a small part of the total information presented in these documents and was often insufficient to answer the questions addressed in this report. In addition, the studies referenced in these documents did not necessarily address the specific objectives of this report. Therefore, considerable research is necessary to adequately characterize lead exposures associated with these lead sources, as well as to mitigate such exposures.
