Lead Paint On House Branford Ct

Lead based paint was commonly used to paint interior and exterior houses in the mid twentieth century. We created this article Lead Paint On House Branford Ct to give you some more information about lead paint and the importance of having a lead certified painter test your home!

Most homes built and painted before 1978 had lead paint.  Due the toxicity of lead paint and the incredible health issues it can cause such as developmental delay, damage to your organs, and  your nervous system just to name a few, it’s very important to have your home tested for lead paint before you do anything!

How do you check if your home has lead paint?  Call a professional painter that is LEAD CERTIFIED!  The EPA requires ALL painters to have lead certification!  When you call to make the estimate appointment, ask if they are lead certified! Make sure CERTIFIED, not if they just know how to test for the lead!
