Bucks County Residents: Protect Your Family from Lead-Based Paint
Property owners who want to rent out their property in Feasterville are now required by law to have that property certified lead-free or lead-safe. This certification is outlined in the city code under Chapters 6-800 and PM-102.0. These regulations were passed in December of 2011.
Under these regulations, any property that was built before March 1978 must be certified to be lead-free or lead-safe before the landlord can rent it out. Potential homebuyers may also ask that the seller have this certification before they purchase the property.
Why Is Lead Testing Required?
Lead testing is required because of the danger it represents. Being near lead paint for even a small amount of time can result in lead entering a person’s bloodstream, which can lead to a number of health conditions. Lead can even lead to brain damage and permanent learning disabilities in children under the age of six.
What Bay Hill Environmental Can Do for You
If you’re uncertain about the amount of lead in the paint in your home, Bay Hill Environmental is here to assist you with all of your lead testing. Your home and land will be inspected with a special XRF Gun which identifies the presence of lead, even if it’s buried beneath coats and coats of paint. If there is evidence of lead, we can use special wipes to determine if lead dust is present in the home.
In many cases, our team can inspect your property the same day you call us!
