If a home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint. In 1978, the U.S. federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint. Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning. If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Call us to schedule lead paint sampling!
Lead is particularly dangerous to children because their growing bodies absorb more lead than adults do and their brains and nervous systems are more sensitive to the damaging effects of lead.
Note: Lead-based paint that is in good condition is usually not a hazard.
You can get your home checked in one of two ways (or both):
Note: Home test kits for lead are available, but studies suggest that they are not always accurate. Consumers should not rely on these tests before doing renovations or to assure safety.
