Lead is a toxic metal that was traditionally used in older paint and other household products such as painted toys, ceramic dishes, pottery, and furniture. Lead is also commonly found in household dust, soil, and in some cases, drinking water. The most common lead hazards in a home involve lead-based paint that has deteriorated, creating toxic dust particles that can be ingested as you breathe.
If left undetected and untreated, high levels of lead exposure can lead to serious health issues in both children and adults, including:
Along with other lead-safe practices—such as removing lead sources, regularly cleaning lead-prone areas, and consulting with a lead abatement contractor—using a simple at-home testing kit can give you peace of mind for your family's safety.
The user-friendly Lead Check Kit makes it easy to learn how to test for lead in your home safely and effectively. The kit includes eight non-toxic, disposable testing swabs used to identify surface-accessible lead on nearly any surface. To test a surface, follow the instructions to activate a swab and apply it to the surface. If lead is detected, the swab or the surface area being tested will turn pink or red on contact, depending on the level of lead concentration. Then, use the test result confirmation cards to confirm the results. One swab should be used to test each individual surface.
For the majority of surfaces, test results are completed in 30 seconds. This time may be increased if testing detects low levels of lead or lead chromate that contains pigments. Depending on your test results, you can then determine when lead remediation practices are necessary.
The LeadCheck Lead Test Kit is one of just a few EPA-approved lead test kits in compliance with the EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule. Contractors and other users should note that this kit is EPA-approved for use on wood or ferrous metal (metal that contains iron) and not approved for use on plaster and drywall.
