Lead Paint sampling by the experts.
Lead has known to be toxin for over 100 years, although it was still available for use in the USA up until 1992. Lead paint was used because of it’s vibrant colors, durability and resistance to weather and mold. Although the use of lead paint in residential buildings stopped by 1978 it is still used on bridges, water towers, some oversea manufactured toys and household pottery.
It is often found on doors and doorframes, skirting boards, banisters, metalwork and even on plastered walls in houses built prior to 1978.
At Philly Lead Inspectors LLC, we offer a Lead in paint sampling service to check for the presence of lead within applied paints in your property. Call us now for more information @ (267) 225-5122.
What exactly is a Lead Paint Inspection?
A lead paint inspection is designed to answer two questions: "Is there lead-based paint present in the housing unit?" and "Where is the lead-based paint?"
A lead-based paint inspection is a comprehensive analysis of the lead content of every painted surface inside and outside of the home. The painted surfaces are also classified as to the condition of the paint.
A lead paint inspection is most appropriate for individuals who need to know where lead-based paint is located, such as in the following situations:
Pennsylvania Law requires the removal or covering of lead paint hazards in homes built before 1978 where any children under the age of six live. As of October 1, 2020, all Philadelphia residential rental units will require a lead-safe certification repeated every 4 years. Landlords will need proof of this certification in order to maintain their rental licenses in Philadelphia. Lead paint hazards include loose lead paint and lead paint dust on windows and other surfaces accessible to children. Owners are responsible with complying with the law.
