Importance of Lead Testing
Lead paint testing is a simple process that most home buyers should perform before purchasing an older home. Lead can be present in older homes built in early to mid 1900s. It is very harmful and can cause serious health problems. SERVPRO of Columbia & Greene Counties can assist you through the lead paint sampling process.
The test is simple. If the test turns red, the paint has lead. The test take no more than a couple of minutes. As you can see in this photo, the sample turned red which means lead is present in the paint of this house.
