This project was undertaken by the EPA Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) to evaluate house dust sampling methods and to assess the efficacy of typical household vacuuming on removing leaded dust from residential surfaces. Dust-lead sampling results from the National Survey of Lead-Based Paint in Housing (HUD National Survey) are reexamined, based on new information collected in this study about the performance of the dust sampler used during that survey. Lead-contaminated house dust is considered one of the most significant sources of childhood lead exposure in the United States. Millions of children live in dwellings with hazardous dust-lead levels and routinely put dust-laden fingers, toys, and other objects into their mouths. Although the potential hazards of house dust are well recognized, it is currently unknown which dust sampling procedures and methods are best for assessing residential lead hazards. It is also unknown how effectively typical vacuuming lowers dust lead levels in the home.
