The Problem with Lead Based Paint
Older homes built before 1978 should need to be tested for lead. Before 1978, the government did not regulate the use of lead in paint. While many homes may have paint that contains lead, it is when the paint starts to chip and these particles are inhaled in the form of lead dust, that is of concern. If you are planning to remodel or young children will be residing in the home, it is important to consider testing for lead. According to the EPA, children exposed to lead-based paint can absorb these toxins more rapidly and are at risk for slow growth, hearing problems, hyperactivity, headaches or possible brain and nervous system problems.
