Lead inspection and testing are important because even low levels of lead exposure can cause health problems. If you think your home may have lead paint chips, or if you are concerned about lead in the water, contact a qualified inspector from Iris Laboratories. We can assess the risk and take steps to protect your family from lead poisoning.
Lead was commonly used in pipes, batteries, paint, and many other products. Despite its many uses, lead poses certain risks. Humans get poisoned if they consume lead. It harms the neurological system and affects the brain. Although lead-based paint was banned for use in homes in 1978, it can still be found in many older homes. This means if you live in an older home, or are considering purchasing one, it is important to have the exterior and interior of your property inspected for lead-based paint.
