ANALYSIS INCLUDED

If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint.  Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning.  Lead paint is still present in millions of homes, sometimes under layers of newer paint.  If the paint is in good shape, the lead paint is usually not a problem. Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp) is a hazard and needs immediate attention-especially if deteriorating lead-based paint is found on surfaces that children can chew or that get a lot of wear-and-tear, such as: windows and window sills; doors and door frames; and stairs, railings, banisters, and porches.

The included test kit offers a laboratory test which identifies if lead-based paint is on the material tested.  Paint is considered to be lead-containing under guidelines established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Housing and Urban Development, if the concentration of lead is equal to or greater than 1.0 mg/cm2.  Lead-based paint should be removed by a lead-safe certified contractor.   

Kit Includes: Disposable mask and gloves, sample baggie, Instructions, Return Envelope and Postage, Analysis and Report.
