Why Is Lead Testing Important?
Lead can affect almost every organ and system in the body. Children under the age of 6 are at the highest risk levels. The most important step a parent can take is to prevent lead exposure before it happens.
In 2012 the CDC lowered the blood lead level of concern in children in the hopes that it would trigger parents and doctors to take action earlier.
Lead in water testing is also important because lead can leach into water from plumbing materials, such as lead pipes, solder, and fixtures. Ingesting lead-contaminated water can cause serious health problems, including developmental delays, learning difficulties, and organ damage.
Lead in water testing can help identify if there are elevated levels of lead in a home’s water supply. This testing is especially important for homes with lead pipes or plumbing installed prior to 1986, when lead solder was banned for use in drinking water systems. However, even homes with newer plumbing can still have lead contamination from other sources.
If lead is found in a home’s water supply, steps can be taken to reduce exposure, such as installing a water filtration system or replacing lead pipes and fixtures. Regular testing can also help ensure that the measures taken to reduce exposure are effective.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that homeowners have their water tested for lead every three years, especially if there are young children or pregnant women in the home.
Lead can enter drinking water (we water test as well) through the corrosion of pipes, especially when the water has high acidity or low mineral content. Spaces built before 1986 are likelier to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder. However, even new, legally “lead-free” plumbing may contain up to 8% lead. Healthy Home Environmental Services will take multiple samples from each water source in the space and have it analyzed to determine if the lead is present and, if so, in what quantities.
Lead testing in homes is important because exposure to lead can have serious health consequences, especially for young children and pregnant women. Lead is a toxic metal that can cause developmental delays, learning difficulties, and other health problems when ingested or inhaled.
Lead was commonly used in paint and plumbing materials prior to the 1980s, so older homes are more likely to contain lead-based paint or lead pipes. Even small amounts of lead can be harmful, and lead poisoning often goes unnoticed because symptoms may not appear for weeks or months after exposure.
Lead testing in homes can identify sources of lead contamination, allowing homeowners to take steps to reduce exposure and protect their families. Testing is especially important for homes with young children or pregnant women, as they are more susceptible to the harmful effects of lead.
If lead is found in a home, there are steps that can be taken to reduce exposure, such as removing lead-based paint or replacing lead pipes. By identifying and addressing sources of lead contamination, homeowners can ensure the safety and health of their families.
Studies have shown that dust lead levels are the strongest predictor of children’s blood lead levels compared with several other variables. The most common place to find lead-based paint is dust on window sills and in window troughs, floors, doors, or baseboards. It can also be found on and near stairs, railings, fire escapes, and porches.
Healthy Home Environmental Services will take dust wipe samples of any areas where dust is collecting or where deteriorating paint is detected.

FAQ's about Lead Testing Service
Lead testing is the process of checking for the presence of lead in a home or building. It is important because lead is a toxic metal that can cause serious health
Anyone who lives in an older home or building, or who suspects that they may have lead-based paint or plumbing materials, should consider lead testing. It is especially important for homes with young children or pregnant women.
Common sources of lead in homes or buildings include lead-based paint, lead pipes and plumbing fixtures, and soil and dust contaminated with lead.
Lead is a toxic heavy metal that can pose a significant health risk when it enters your drinking water. One of the most common ways that lead enters your water is through the corrosion of service pipes that contain lead. This is especially true in areas with high acidity or low mineral content that can corrode pipes and fixtures. The most significant source of lead in drinking water is from brass or chrome-plated brass faucets and fixtures with lead solder. Hot water can also exacerbate the problem by allowing more significant amounts of lead to enter into the water. If your home was built before 1986, it is more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder. That’s why it’s essential to have your water tested regularly by a professional water testing service.
