When you are purchasing a home or building, worrying about lead paint generally falls to the bottom of the list but is honestly one that should be near to the top of that list of worries.
Homes that were built before 1978 will mostly likely contain lead paint in some area of the home even if the common signs aren’t there.
Lead was added into paint that was used on the exterior and interior of the home as it provided a glossy finish that was desired by everyone. Unfortunately, contractors and painters were unaware at the time that it was a health risk to people, especially children.
Having your home remediated from lead paint can be an expensive cost and time.
To prevent this costly job after purchasing, adding our lead paint testing can save you money down the road.
