Quakertown Rental Properties Must be Lead-Safe or Lead-Free Certified
Anyone who owns rental property in Quakertown that was built before March of 1978 must have that property certified lead-safe or lead-free. The regulations outlining this certification are a part of Chapter 6-800 and Chapter PM-102.0 of the Philadelphia City Code. The city council passed a bill amending these specific chapters to include regulations about lead paint and certification requirements in 2011. These regulations affect all landlords, property managers, and anyone else who rents multi-unit dwellings.
How Bay Hill Environmental Can Help Your Bucks County Home
If you own older property in Bucks County and plan on renting it out, you need to make certain a trustworthy expert has certified it as lead-safe. The professionals here at Bay Hill Environmental can assist you with this. The home and land are inspected with a special XRF Gun which identifies the presence of lead, even if it’s buried beneath coats and coats of paint!
Water and Soil Testing Service
Lead can also contaminate the soil and water. In older neighborhoods where lead-based paint was used routinely decades ago, dust and rubble from demolished buildings are the most common source of contaminated soil and water.
Call Bay Hill to Give You Peace of Mind
If your home was built prior to March of 1978, you may wish to have the paint tested for your own peace of mind. Even if you don’t plan on selling or renting out the property anytime soon, it can still pose a danger to you and your family. Children 6 years old or younger who are exposed to lead paint are much more likely to develop learning disabilities.
Don’t put your children at risk, especially when affordable testing services are available in Quakertown. Call us today at 215-284-0086 or click here to contact us to request a quote or make an appointment.
