Lead Based Paint Testing

Vinson Home Inspection Services Lead Based Paint Testing

If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint. In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint, but some states banned it even earlier. Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning.

Lead paint is still present in millions of homes, sometimes under layers of newer paint. If the paint is in good shape, the lead paint is usually not a problem. Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp) is a hazard and needs immediate attention.

It may also be a hazard when found on surfaces that children can chew or that get a lot of wear-and-tear, such as:

    • Windows and window sills;
    • Doors and door frames; and
    • Stairs, railings, banisters, and porches.

Be sure to keep all paint in excellent shape and clean up dust frequently.  Lead in household dust results from indoor sources such as deteriorating lead-based paint.

We scrape a sample of paint from an inconspicuous area, such as inside a closet and send it off to a lab to be tested. We will have results withing two to three days.
