Lead Paint Inspections
Are you planning to buy a home built before 1978?
Lead is a toxic metal that was used for many years in paint and other products found in and around our homes. Deteriorating lead-based paint, such as peeling paint and dust in windows and on floors, can be a source of lead poisoning in your home.
Although lead-based paint for residential use was banned in New Jersey in 1971, it was still widely available until the EPA national ban on sales in 1978. Use of lead-based paint in homes built prior to 1950 was common.
A lead paint inspection tells you the lead content of every different type of painted surface in your home. Have qualified professionals do the work. There are standards in place for certifying lead-based paint professionals to ensure the work is done safely, reliably, and effectively. We can arrange for a NJ licensed lead paint inspection if desired.
