At a home on Maisel St. off of Westport St., Mile Milanovic, part of the lead removal crew for the Coalition to End Childhoold Lead Poisoning, puts an old window covered in lead paint inside a plastic bag for removal. The organization is replacing all windows in the home. They will also make all floors "smooth and cleanable" by taking up old carpet and putting down luan plywood sub floor with a vinyl sheath on top. The worn bathroom floor will be covered with vinyl to prevent lead dust from gathering in the cracks. One of the bills presented to lawmakers in Annapolis would mandate window replacement in any home where blood tests reveal a child has elevated lead levels.
