Lead Testing Washington, DC
Find Out if Lead Poisoning is a Risk Factor in Your Home.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) consider lead poisoning to be the #1 environmental health threat to American children. Lead paint in home building was not regulated until 1978, so most houses built before 1978 contain some lead-based paint. When lead-based paint deteriorates, it creates an invisible, tasteless, and odorless toxic lead dust. Lead from chipping or peeling paint can mix with dust and soil in and around your home, making it available for young children to ingest during normal hand-to-mouth play. A freshly remodeled home can also pose a threat. In the remodeling process, lead dust and lead chips from scraping and sanding old painted surfaces can mix with dust and soil.
The older the house, the greater the risk is for having lead contamination. Lead-based paint is not dangerous if it is properly cared for. The good news is that you can protect your family with lead testing from HomeTeam Inspection Service to determine if any mitigation should be performed.
