Lead Based Paint

Paint that contains lead, which was used as a pigment and to speed up the drying time of paint. Lead Based Paint has been used on anything from toys to wall paint. Lead Based Paint was banned from use in 1978 but is still found in residential and commercial properties. Exposure concerns are primarily for children under the age of six years, whose bodies are still undergoing development. Lead Based Paint testing is often required for childcare facilities and other properties built prior to 1978, especially if peeling or degraded suspect lead based paint is identified at the property.
