Although the use of lead-based paint was banned in 1978, it can still be found in many old homes in the United States including Boston. Moreover, homes built after 1978 are also not necessarily lead paint-free. This is why it is important to identify lead paint hazards prior to buying, renting, or remodeling your home/business. Otherwise, you might end up disturbing the paint which will produce toxic lead dust that can put your family or business at risk.
Lead inspections and assessments can accurately determine the severity of the lead hazards and help in designing the best solutions. However, you can only get reliable results from certified professionals like RPF Environmental.
In addition, among the key reasons why you should have your home inspected for lead hazards according to EPA include:
Young children can touch or chew on lead-contaminated objects including toys and even ingest flaking paint chips. This can cause permanent damage to their nervous system, brain, and kidneys. Even low levels in their blood can cause behavior and learning problems. Among the best ways you can prevent childhood lead poisoning is through lead hazard inspection and following lead-safe work practices when doing home renovations.
In addition, exposed pregnant women can pass the lead to their unborn child and cause miscarriage and premature birth in addition to the health risks we mentioned previously.
The Massachusetts Lead Law also requires lead-based paint hazards to be removed or covered in homes constructed before 1978, especially if you have kids below 6 years old. Homeowners must comply with this law and ensure that no lead hazards like deteriorating paint on friction surfaces are present in the child’s home.
If you’re a homeowner who wants to know if your house is safe from lead or need a lead certification to comply with regulations, we can help you. We offer professional, affordable, and fast lead paint testing and risk assessment services in Boston, Massachusetts and other areas across the New England region.
