FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LEAD PAINT:
Why should I get a lead paint inspection or risk assessment?
A lead paint inspection is most commonly conducted prior to remodeling or demolition projects where lead dust could be generated, or if there is significant paint and/or substrate deterioration.
A lead risk assessment identifies all lead hazards and is used in varying scenarios, mostly involving lead exposure to children. If you have a child under the age of six in a home built before 1978 a risk assessment would show what those children are being exposed to. Kids spend a lot of time on the floor and put their hands in their mouths frequently. If lead paint chips or dust are present in the home, it’s very possible they could end up being ingested by children. This scenario is important for both homeowners and property owners, especially if renting to families or businesses that cater to children. A lead clearance test is a government-mandated inspection required to prove that a home has had all lead hazards addressed following an investigation that identified the property as the source of lead poisoning in a child.
