Soil Sampling and Testing for Lead Contamination

Nov 23, 2020

The real estate market is booming as many purchases and renovations are taking place. If you are planning to upgrade the look of your older building or dwelling, you may want to consider implementing a soil sampling and testing program as a part of your renovation budget. According to the EPA, if your home was built before 1978, it is more likely to have lead-based paint. In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-based paint, but some states banned it even earlier. Lead and other heavy metals can leech into your soil from chipped paint and lead to poisoning over time.
