Historic homes are wonderful places to live in. The craftsmanship of older homes tends to be imbued with a style and character that is enormously appealing. But if you live in a home that was built before 1978, lead paint could have been used in its construction. And lead paint presents known health hazards to humans and pets.Banned by the Environmental Protection Agency for use in residential homes in 1978, many homes built before that time still contain lead paint.
If you have an older home and are unsure if it has lead paint, you can schedule a lead paint inspection. SFW Painting is a reputable, established painting company that conducts comprehensive Vancouver home lead paint inspections. This process entails examining all layers of paint on the interior and exterior surfaces, including the trim, eaves, soffit, and accents of your home.
