Testing for Lead Based Paint in Philadelphia
Many people don’t realize that the home they’re living in or renting to others contains lead paint. Any house built before 1978 may contain this substance, which can be very dangerous to children. Any child, age six or younger who breathes in any paint dust containing lead may develop a number of health issues, including permanent brain damage and learning disabilities.
Because of this, the Philadelphia city council passed a law in 2011 that required all landlords who owned one of these older homes and was renting to a family with children to have the property certified either lead-free or lead-safe.
