Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) September 21, 2008
Lead exposure can cause serious health problems, especially in young children. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs. The greatest concern is even "low level" lead exposure reduces children's ability to learn. Lead-based paint becomes a hazard when it starts to wear, chip, or peel, or while it is being removed by sanding or stripping. In 1978 lead-based paint was banned in the United States but more than 80 percent of homes built before 1978 still contain lead. In most states a home seller must disclose their home was tested for lead.
Now it is easier to screen your home for leaded paint. Industrial Test Systems, Inc. is proud to announce the revolutionary new LeadQUICK™ Home Paint Kit (487924-V). It's an accurate, affordable, fast (results in 4 minutes) and easy to use visual home test kit for testing the EPA recommended maximum level of lead in paint (1 mg Lead per cm²). Unlike the popular swab method that only tests for lead only on the surface, the new LeadQUICK™ Home Paint Kit uses a wedged paint chip that measures all paint layers for lead. The kit involves chemical reactions that produce a visible color change in the presence of lead compounds. LEADQuick™ Paint Lead Kit has the following low levels of detection: 0.05, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0 and 1.2, mg/cm². The kit includes 25 tests for $59.99.
