why lead testing is necessary
Lead Inspections and testing for Landlord & Contractor
Philadelphia has a new ordinance that is the new lead-based paint law that is now in effect and will impact every landlord across the city. As of October 2020, all rental properties built pre-1978 will require a lead-based paint inspection by a certified lead inspector.
Lead Dusting Testing
Lead dust according to the EPA & City of Philadelphia is the number one cause for childhood lead poisoning. Over time paint starts to crack, chip, peel & flake away where dust tends to formulate and spread. Children tend to inhale lead dust or put their hands in their mouth to ingest it.

Lead based paint resides in the majority of homes built prior to 1978. Exposure to lead paint chips either eating or playing with the debris can be harmful. Everyone is at risk.
