Lead Testing

Testing is the only way to know if a home has an elevated level of lead.  

How Can You Find Out If You Have High Lead Levels In Your Home?

Some of the areas in your home that must be tested in order to determine the amount of exposure to lead that your family may be getting are paint, household dust, water and soil.


To thoroughly analyze the paint in your home, each different painted surface should be tested.  Different paints may have been used on walls, window frames, doors and so on.  Paints may also differ from room to room.  Each of your home's painted surfaces, both inside and outside, should be tested seperately.  

Household dust:  

Household dust may contain tiny particles of lead released from lead-painted surfaces inside the home or tracked in with lead-contaminated soil from outside. 


Household drinking water may contain lead, usually from old pipes that contain lead or from lead solder in plumbing. 


Lead may be present in the soil around your home and near streets and highways close to your home.
