Lead-based paints are common in buildings and homes constructed before 1978. If you are considering buying an older property, a Lead Test will ensure the safety and well-being of your family from the health risks of lead paint.
Lead-based paint may not be a hazard when in good condition but poses a significant risk when it deteriorates, causing severe health issues related to the nervous system, kidneys, and blood. Exposure to elevated lead levels can cause anemia and brain damage in infants and young children. Unborn children are also at-risk if an expectant mother is exposed.
During a Lead Test, a WIN Home Inspector will collect paint chip samples from targeted areas, then send the same for evaluation. We share our findings in a detailed report that includes concentration levels of any lead detected in the sample.
