According to the Environmental Protection Agency, lead is a highly toxic metal that can cause serious health problems if ingested or inhaled. Lead poisoning is especially harmful to children, pregnant women, and the elderly. Long-term exposure to lead can cause neurological damage, learning disabilities, and other health problems.
There is no safe level of lead exposure, which is why the EPA recommends that all homes built before 1978 be tested for lead. Lead testing is a simple and affordable process that can be performed by a certified home inspector.
If lead is found in your home, there are a number of ways to mitigate the risk of exposure. These include removing or sealing lead-based paint, removing lead-based plumbing fixtures, and providing tenants with information about the dangers of lead exposure and how to minimize their risk.
Lead testing is an important part of protecting your family’s health, and it is well worth the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is safe.
