Lead – assessments, sampling and testing
Lead was one of the first metals to be discovered and widely used in human history. The metal’s sweet taste made it the perfect additive to wines, which were shipped across Europe. Even back then, lead was reported to cause severe illnesses like anemia, gout, and severe colic.
A history of lead
In the 1800s, lead was found to be a good additive to paint—making it long-lasting and durable. But in the early 1900s, many children fell sick with neurological illnesses discovered to be caused by the presence of lead in paint.
In 1978, lead-based paint was banned for household use. If your home was built before 1978, there is a chance some of your paint contains lead.
