Why Do You Need Lead Testing or Inspections?
Children at the highest risk for lead poisoning, especially dangerous to children under 6 years of age. Small children tend to put things in their mouths & play on the floors. This exposes the child to lead if there are lead hazards in the home. If swallowed, lead tends to absorb more easily in a young child than an adult. Lead poising can have developmental affects on a child’s internal organs, nervous system, bones & brain. Other effects can include learning disabilities, behavioral problems & growth delays.
Lead inspections are the only way to tell if your home, school, or work place has lead hazards present. Because of the dangerous nature of lead, you should consult a professional to ensure that everyone is safe and healthy. If your building was built before 1978, during the time when it was still acceptable to use lead materials, give yourself peace of mind by scheduling an appointment for an inspection.
