The Importance of Lead Paint Testing in Ocean County
With more than 600,000 people living in Ocean County, it’s no surprise that homes and apartments are always in demand. And whether you’re looking to buy a home in this vibrant area, or you’re a property manager looking for the perfect tenant, there’s an important element of the process that you need to consider: lead paint testing.
The federal government outlawed lead-based paints in all buildings in 1978, after the CDC found that exposure to even tiny amounts was harmful to anyone, but especially to young children, pregnant women, and their unborn babies. Lead exposure can cause neurological problems, brain damage, and learning and developmental disabilities. Since then other laws regarding lead paint have gone into effect, including a 1992 law requiring the EPA and HUD to disclose any information regarding lead-based paints in homes going up for sale or lease. Some major cities have even enacted ordinances requiring landlords to receive a lead-safe or lead-free certification before renting homes and apartments out to families with small children.
