Any home built before 1978 probably has lead-based paint. When damaged or sanded, lead-based paint can become hazardous. Get Lead-Based Paint Testing before you start a remodel in your home or if you plan to buy a home that will need renovation in the future.
Standards for lead-free paint and environmentally friendly paint for the interior or exterior of your home have changed drastically over the years. Older homes in Colorado, fix-and-flips, as well as other dwellings still have toxic lead-based paint that needs to be scraped, removed, and painted over with the fresh, non-toxic paint of today!
It’s a great idea to get a lead-based paint testing and screening. Certified IAQ has state-certified lead-based paint technicians ready to come to your home today. Call or request a free consultation now. 720-995-7015.
Frequently Asked Questions
My home was built before 1978, does it need lead testing?
According to the EPA if your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint. In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint, but some states banned it even earlier. Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning.
Where can lead be found in my home?
Lead can be found in many products found in and around the home, including paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, solders, gasoline, batteries, ammunition, and cosmetics.
