It turns out that renovating properties business, and schools built prior to 1978 is one major point of origin. All the cutting, sanding, and pounding can create leaded dust and chips, which then contaminate nearby surfaces and soil.

Not all contractors follow safety rules designed to prevent lead dust from spreading.
