LEAD-BASED PAINT (LBP)
Homes built before 1978 were allowed to use LBP. After that timeframe, although it was no longer produced for the general public, residents and builders continued to use the remaining materials they had stored.
If your home, office or school was constructed around or prior to 1978 and you would like to confirm that you and others are not exposed to LBP, please contact Atlanta Health and Safety, LLC. We will perform testing on the questionable material and provide you with a report for your records.
