If your home was built prior to 1978, it is in your family’s best interest to schedule lead paint testing with Wall 2 Wall Property inspections in San Jose, CA. We proudly serve homes and business in Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and the surrounding areas. Our primary goal is to provide you with the information needed to keep your family safe from harm.
Who Needs a Lead Paint Inspection?
In 1978, lead-based paints were banned from use in residential homes. This means, however, that homes built prior to 1978 are likely to have lead-based paint in them. When the paint peels and cracks, it makes lead paint chips and dust that can poison young children. Therefore, the CDC recommends that any home built prior to 1978 be tested.
What’s the Big Deal?
Lead-based paint is poisonous and can cause long-term damage to a child’s brain and nervous system. Additionally, exposure to lead can cause learning and behavior problems, slowed growth and development, hearing and speech problems, and a lower IQ. The CDC estimates that nearly 24 million homes in the U.S. contain deteriorated lead-based paint, causing 535,000 children ages 1 to 5 to have blood lead levels high enough to damage their health.
