Getting ready to sell your home? Make sure it’s lead-free firstDoes your property have lead paint? Are you thinking about putting it on the market? Then you need to find a trustworthy company that specializes in lead removal.

Why remove lead?

Many potential buyers will deeply care about whether your home contains lead or not, particularly if they have young children. What often happens is that lead paint flakes or chips off the walls onto the floor, where little ones are crawling around. Sooner or later, a small children do, they put their hands into their mouths, and consume the lead paint chips. Lead exposure, even in small amounts, should definitely be avoided whenever possible.

Lead exposure can eventually cause lead poisoning, which can lead to severe developmental problems. Parents are always careful to protect their children from lead exposure, so you’ll definitely have an easier time selling your home if you make sure it’s de-leaded first.

If it’s such a big deal, why do so many properties contain lead?

Lead-based interior and exterior paint was used in almost all properties from 1940s-1978s, when it was finally banned in the US by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Before then, people didn’t realize the danger lead exposure posed, particularly to young children. Now all people who care about the safety and welfare of young children are paying more attention to potential instances of lead exposure and preventing it as much as possible.
