If you are a homeowner in a home built before 1978 you too can have your home inspected to determine if there are any lead based paint hazards present. Lead-based paint was used in more than 38 million homes before it was banned from residential use in 1978. There is absolutely no reason that you and your family shouldn't be aware of any lead paint dangers in your place of residence. Also, homeowners residing in homes built before 1978 should be aware of the new Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) that requires contractors that disturb lead based paint be trained in lead-safe work practices.
Whether you have a contractor perform the work or you complete it yourself you can contact me to have the project cleared of lead based paint hazards.
Federal law requires a 10-day period before being obligated under contract so that a homebuyer can conduct an inspection for lead based paint in homes built before
1978. Parties may mutually agree, in writing, to lengthen or shorten the time
period for inspection or homebuyers may waive this inspection opportunity. Prospective homebuyers of homes built before 1978 can contact me for a lead inspection before moving in to ensure that your new home is free of any lead based paint hazards.
The ultimate goal is peace of mind in knowing that you and your family are protected from any exposure to lead paint dust if you live in a home built before 1978. People are surprised to find that peace of mind comes at such a low cost. Contact me with any questions or for details and I'll be glad to help you get started in protecting yourself and your family.
