If you are interested in an analysis of possible hazardous contaminants found in the dust in your home, then you may be interested in the 360 Dust Analysis Project at IUPUI. The project's main focus is on lead and chromium but will look for a few other contaminants.

This press release explains the details as well as how to participate. It includes a video in which the director of the IUPUI Center for Urban Health Gabriel Filippeli explains.

The researchers will run an analysis on each sample and send back a report that includes suggestions on how to handle any contaminants found in the dust.

IUPUI = Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
