Lead Abatement - If you’re renovating, repairing or doing any general construction work to a home or business that was constructed before 1978, then you’ll probably need a certified lead abatement service. Since 2010, the EPA mandated that any removal of paint from a structure older than 1978 needs to be performed by a certified lead abatement removal specialist. Lead is a very dangerous substance that can harm you and your family. If you suspect your home may contain lead particles, call a lead abatement service in your area immediately.

Where is Lead Found

Lead can be found in all types of areas in and around a structure built before 1978. Here are a few places where lead can be a problem:

Exterior Interior Paint - Many homes and business built before 1978 can have lead paint on the walls and ceilings.

Soil - Lead paint that leached from the side of the building and debris left over from older leaded gasoline engines can easily leach into the surrounding soil. Lead can then be breathed as dust or exposed directly to the skin.

Dust - Even minute particles of lead dust from interior paint can build up over time and cause contamination in the home.

Water Pipes - Older homes plumbing pipes were often sealed with lead based solder. Since lead is tasteless, odorless and colorless, you may not even know lead is in your water supply.

Old Toys and Furniture - Old child’s playthings and antique painted furniture often was covered using lead based paint products.

Getting a Lead Inspection

If you suspect lead may be present in your home, immediately get a lead inspection. A certified lead assessment test must be performed by qualified professionals. Contact the National Lead Information Center for more details on the certification process in your area. A lead abatement specialist will do a visual inspection, take samples to the lab and possibly perform an x-ray florescence of the suspected area to find out if lead is present.
