Customer Questions & Answers

Lead testing

If I've painted over lead paint with safe paint, will it still show up if the original paint was lead base?
Asked by: Dena
If the safe paint coat(s) is(are) thick enough, you may not get a positive result (probably not) testing the surface since the lead is contained in the paint underneath the safe paint. However, if you pull off a chip of paint and test the underside, it will test positive. It would qualify as requiring treating it as lead paint under current regulations if you were to scrap or sand the surface to prep it for repainting (e.g., bringing a surface down to wood).

I was testing for an old doll house built in the 70's with multiple different paint colors for lead based paint. With just one of the two testers I was able to check all the surfaces I needed to test. Because I am paranoid, when all surfaces indicated no lead, I tested them again in different areas with the second tester. Though I have never used another lead tester, I feel confident in the results based on the included paper with lead traces in it which did turn pink indicating the presence of lead. There are two of these paper indicators, one for each tester. Using the testers did leave a slight discoloration on some surfaces, but in my case it was easily cleaned with a wet paper towel.

It must have been sitting in the shelf too long. I will try the second stick at some point. Company needs to evaluate the shelf life. Still a great price for a quick lead check.
