Lead Paint was commonly used in homes until outlawed in 1978. It is extremely important to identify contaminated homes with lead because of the serious health risks lead poses when inhaled or ingested. This can happen as a result of disturbing the lead contaminated area. Many symptoms of lead ingestion and/or inhalation mimic various common illnesses. The difference is, they just never go away. They can be minor or severe; they are often debilitating, and occasionally lethal. Fortunately, Lead Locators offer highly sophisticated testing services and has the background to recommend proper procedures to mitigate the risk if found, or certify your home lead safe.
