Lead Paint Testing & Removal
Prior to 1978, lead was being added to common household paint. The lead additive allowed for the paint to be more durable and gave it a nice shine so it always looked fresh. Additionally, it dried faster and resisted moisture.
It wasn’t known until later that the lead was poisonous and causing children to become very sick. Further research was conducted, and the federal government banned the use of lead-based paint for consumer use.
Lead isn’t only found in the paint for homes. It can also be found on old toys that were painted with lead paint, in the soil, weights at the gym, fishing sinkers, and more.
Many antique toys that have been passed down from generation to generation are likely to have once been painted with a form of lead-based paint.
