What Is Lead, What Hazards Are Associated With It?
Lead is a toxic and naturally occurring element in our environment. Lead is used in commercial products such as gasoline, cosmetics, spices, pottery, and PAINT! In children, lead can cause nervous system and kidney damage, as well as causing learning disabilities, and ADD (attention deficit disorder). In some cases, it can be the cause of specific behavior, speech and language problems, hearing damage, and limited muscle and bone growth. In order to avoid such things, a Lead Safe Inspector can determine the level of lead in your home’s atmosphere.
Lead-based paint is generally not a hazard if it is kept in good condition. When the surface painted with lead-based paint deteriorates and chips, cracks, or becomes damaged, it can become a hazard and should be attended to. Lead dust forms when surfaces are damaged, and it then enters the atmosphere.
Lead-Based Paint Inspection Required In Some Homes
Under P.L. 2021, C. 182 enacted by the State of New Jersey, all single-family, two-family, and multiple-rental dwellings must be inspected for lead. In accordance with this law, municipalities are required to hire a Certified Lead Evaluation Contractor to perform Lead-based Paint Inspections. If lead-based paint is found, owners must remediate the problem. They must also report tenant turnover to the town, and provide documentation that the abatement has been performed to any subsequent owners of the dwelling.
Dwellings that were built after 1978 are exempt. Dwellings that have been certified to be free of lead-based paint according to NJAC 5:17-3.16(b), and multiple rental dwellings that have been registered with the Department of Community Affairs for ten years and have no outstanding lead violations under the “Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law” are also exempt. There are other possible exemptions, refer to the Department of Community Affairs website for more information.
