5. Cleanup. Recommended measures for cleanup after lead abatement procedures should consist of High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuuming and washing with trisodium phosphate (TSP) solution. Ordinary household vacuum cleaners will not pick up most lead dust.
6. Disposal. All lead dust, paint chips, equipment, supplies and materials used in abatement should be considered hazardous waste and disposed of in accord with local regulations.
