Lead Paint Testing in Philadelphia

Lead Testing in Philadelphia

Lead Paint Testing PA

Philadelphia requires all Landlords to certify their rental property for lead. Click here for details.

Lead is no longer present in modern paints, that doesn’t mean it’s not an issue today. In fact, lead paint remains in many Philadelphia buildings built before 1978, and this old paint may turn into paint chips or dust as it degrades. When this happens, exposure to the particles can cause severe health problems, particularly for children.

At AAA Lead Professionals PA, we provide comprehensive lead testing for older paints and potential lead contaminants that may have spread as dust to nearby areas. Our expert technicians have performed countless lead paint inspections and tests over the years, and are fully trained to promptly identify and deal with lead and its related hazards.

Don’t let problems with lead or other toxins catch you off guard in your Pennsylvania home or workplace. Reach out to us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our EPA-certified technicians and receive a comprehensive estimate.

Why Are Lead Paint Inspections Important in Philadelphia?

Lead paint in good condition isn’t inherently problematic, but concerns arise as lead-based paint ages and begins to degrade. It transforms into flakes, chips, and dust, circulating within your home and eventually entering the body, leading to preventable health issues including lead poisoning. The lingering lead residue extends its reach to soil, air, water, furniture, and clothes, particularly affecting individuals working with the paint, such as contractors doing home renovations.

In cities where residential and commercial spaces see countless tenants, owners, and construction projects over the years, it can be hard to know whether your building harbors lead paint. Rely on our team of EPA-certified lead experts to conduct a thorough and meticulous lead inspection, especially if your building project or relocation might disturb lead-based paint.

We ensure comprehensive lead safety for all relevant areas of your building. This includes kitchens, bathrooms, living and dining rooms, bedrooms, basements, attics, boiler rooms, electrical closets, pipes, heating appliances, garages, crawlspaces, and storage rooms. Additionally, we can check exterior spaces like walls, roofing, and siding, leaving no stone unturned in safeguarding your space from potential lead hazards.

The Risks of Lead Paint Exposure

Long-term exposure to lead has been shown to have many detrimental health effects, regardless of the source. Children are especially susceptible to negative impacts on their development when exposed to lead. The use of lead is now heavily regulated, and in many cases banned, in an effort to prevent the harms caused by lead exposure.

Potential health impacts on children from lead paint exposure include

  • Hyperactivity and negative impacts on cognition and brain development
  • Behavioural and learning problems
  • Hearing issues
  • Stunted growth
  • Anemia

Risks to pregnant women from lead poisoning can include:

  • Low birth weight
  • Stillbirth
  • Premature delivery
  • Miscarriage

Where is lead-based paint usually found?

Potential lead-based paint hazards can exist anywhere in your building, especially if it’s older. Usually, lead paint is found in areas that are repainted frequently, like bedrooms experiencing high resident turnover. However, any element of a building’s interior or exterior could potentially harbor unsafe levels of lead-based paint or lead paint residue.
