This report presents two years of follow-up of the Lead-Based Paint Abatement and Repair and Maintenance (R&M) Study in Baltimore. The study was designed to characterize and compare the short-term (two months to six months) and longer-term (12 months to 24 months) effectiveness of three levels in interim control interventions (R&M I-III) in structurally sound housing where children were at risk of exposure to lead in settled house dust and paint. R&M I included wet scraping of peeling and flaking lead-based paint on interior surfaces; limited repainting of scraped surfaces; wet cleaning with a trisodium phosphate (TSP) detergent and vacuuming with a higher efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum to the extent possible in an occupied house; the provision of an entryway mat and information to occupants; and stabilization of lead-based paint on exterior surfaces to the extent possible, given the budget cap.
