"Lead-Safe" vs. "Lead-Free" What's the difference?

"Lead Free" Certification
Valid for Lifetime!
How to Obtain Certification
- The inspector will take approximately 20 random shots throughout the home to see if he or she finds lead paint right away. This service is provided at no charge to the client.
- If the inspector is confident that the home is lead-free, then he or she will proceed with a comprehensive Lead Paint Inspection in order to achieve "Lead Free" status.
- If the home contains only a small amount of lead, then the inspector would notify the client to recommend removing or remediating lead components to achieve the “Lead Free" Certificate.
- If the home contains a large amount of lead, then the inspector would proceed to take required dust samples in their effort to achieve a “Lead Safe" Certificate.
