Located in beautiful Bucks County, Levittown was the very first planned community in the United States. Established in 1947 for World War II veterans and their families, Levittown remains full of beautiful homes and parks. Although these older homes still look beautiful, their age does mean that they were built during a time when using lead-based paint was the norm. That means that many homes in Levittown may present 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 the greater Levittown area.

We service homeowners, investors, landlords, and property management companies in Levittown and the surrounding areas of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. We inspect homes and yards for Lead-based Paint (LBP) and provide Lead-Free and Lead-Safe certifications.
The Dangers of Lead Paint in Levittown
Lead paint is very toxic to people. Unfortunately, this wasn’t known before 1978, which means many older Levittown homes contain lead-based paint that can still be a danger today.
Even if it’s covered with layers of newer, safe paint, it’s still possible that lead dust can escape and contaminate your home.
If you live in Bucks County and have young children, they are at risk of developmental damage from lead. It can damage a number of different organs, including the brain. This can lead to permanent brain damage and learning disabilities.
Laws Regarding Lead Testing and Certification in Bucks County
In 2011, the city code of Philadelphia was updated to include laws regarding lead paint testing. These regulations are included in the amended Chapter 6-800 and PM-102.0. They apply to any property built before March of 1978 that is being rented to families who have at least one child age six or younger. The regulations require the landlord to have a lead inspection done, and the property must be certified lead-safe or lead-free.
