If your building is more than 30 years old, it could contain lead paint in one or more areas of it. Exposure to lead paint can result in learning disabilities, breathing disorders or even organ damage, which is why you should have it removed as soon as possible. If you suspect your structure is affected, have lead paint testing performed so you can take the proper precautionary measures to have it eliminated.► Click For Free Lead Paint Testing Quotes ◄
Although lead paint has not been manufactured for some time, you could still suffer from exposure to it. The previous owners of your building may have used leftover paint years after it became unavailable, leaving a fresh coat on interior or exterior surfaces. There may also be lead paint buried under layers of newer paint in different areas of your home. In many cases, it's impossible to tell whether or not lead paint is present unless a scientific test is performed. This is not a test you can perform yourself, which is why you should allow a professional from our extended network to help you.
Average lead paint testing costs tend to be based on the area you are having tested and the number of layers deep the suspected paint is. You could wind up paying more money for an experienced technician; however, you should be guaranteed more accurate results by doing so. Be sure to choose a professional who is licensed and insured, even if doing so costs you more money in the long run.
