LEAD BASED PAINT INSPECTIONS IN SOUTH FLORIDA
Lead Based Inspections are an important part of homes built prior to 1978.
A few decades ago, lead was a common component in thousands of applications. The substance found its way into homes, schools and businesses across the country. Eventually, the government recognized how dangerous exposure to lead could be. That’s why lead-based paint was banned for use by consumers in 1978.
However, if your home or another structure that you frequent was built prior to 1978, chances are good that it has lead-based paint on one or more of its surfaces. This paint may be on the building’s interior or exterior. It was used to cover surfaces such as siding, drywall, windows, window frames, doors and door frames. Builders also used lead-based paint on railings, stairs and porches.
Sometimes, that lead paint is found under layers of newer, less toxic paint. Whenever those layers of paint start to peel, chip or crack, everyone in your family is dangerously exposed to lead.
Scientists know that lead exposure can cause numerous health concerns, particularly for young children. If your home or another building that you own was constructed before 1978, then it is wise to ask for a lead-based paint inspection.
