Is Testing For Lead In Paint Necessary?
Lead is a chemical element that occurs naturally in our environment. It is found in commercial products such as gasoline, some cosmetics, spices, pottery and PAINT. If surfaces painted with lead-based paint are kept in good condition it is not a hazard. It becomes dangerous to human health when it cracks or chips and the dust enters the atmosphere. Lead dust in the air can result in causing learning disabilities and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) in children. It can also cause speech and language problems, hearing damage, or limited muscle and bone growth. Having a certified inspector determine the presence of lead in your home is in the best interest of yourself and your family.
Lead-Safe Testing Required In Certain Instances
In NJ, if lead-based paint is found in any single-family, two-family and multiple-rental buildings the owners must clean it up. This regulation was enacted by the State of New Jersey. Owners of rental properties must provide documentation of lead abatement to any new owners of said properties. Buildings erected after 1978 are exempt. Details regarding this and any other regulations relative to lead paint are available on the Department of Community Affairs website. Certified Lead Paint Inspection in NJ is recommended.
