Scheduling a lead test or a lead paint removal at your home in Des Moines, Iowa, or a surrounding community can be crucial for the health of you and your family. If your home was built before 1978, it is likely that you still have lead paint in your house. Many homeowners think that you can simply paint over the lead with a fresh coat of paint to protect yourself, however that simply isn’t true. No matter how many times you paint over the lead, it will still remain beneath the surface. That is why if your home was built prior to that year, it is important that you contact Waddle Exteriors today to schedule a lead test.
