Lead based paint is a real problem and poses a health hazard. However, if you have conducted renovation in your home recently, any painted surfaces that may have been broken, sanded or scraped may have caused lead dust particles to be released all over your home.

This Lead Surface Testing Kit can help you determine whether or not lead is a problem in your home. The kit comes with 2 chemically impregnanted non-toxic paper strips which, when activated with a few drops of water, will detect lead on any surface instantly. If lead is present, the white test strip will turn bright red.

Lead Poisoning causes brain damage to children from birth to 8 years old. Test your home or office for this deadly toxin. Our Professional lead test kit for all surfaces contains 6 instant test strips to make sure you and your family are safe.


Perform the test on: Dinnerware, Mini Blinds, Ceramics, Soil, Plumbing Pipes & Fixtures, Children's Toys & Antiques etc.

PROFESSIONAL LEAD SURFACE TEST KIT

COMPLETE DIRECTIONS INSIDE-KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

CONTENTS Lead Test Pads (6 tests) Eye dropper

The PRO-LAB® Professional Lead Test Kit provides a convenient and simple way to detect lead on any surface including: mini-blinds, ceramics, dishes, toys, water and sewer pipes, solder, painted wood or metal surfaces, soil, lead crystal and other items.

The effects of lead poisoning can be devastating. It has been estimated that more than 200,000 children in the U.S. have contracted lead poisoning resulting in brain damage, learning disabilities and mental retardation.

HOW DO YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH LEAD?

Although the use of lead-based paint (LBP) was banned in 1978, over 57 million homes still contain some lead according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Lead based paint can be on windows, doors, wood trim, walls, cabinets, porches, stairs, railings, fire escapes, old furniture (cribs), and even children's toys. As LBP cracks and peels, paint chips are loosened and ingested by children.

The PRO-LAB® Professional Lead Surface Test Kit is the most accurate and sensitive lead test kit available to the consumer. The NON-TOXIC chemically impregnated test pads, when moistened with water, provide the most effective and reliable results possible. The test pads detect the presence of lead to as little as 5 parts per million, (as documented by tests conducted the Midwest Research Institute).

DIRECTIONS

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before starting the test, you must cut the two (2) lead test pads into three (3) equal pieces each, creating a total of six (6) smaller test pads. To insure longevity, immediately place the product back in package to protect from damaging sunlight.

FOR MINIBLINDS, PIPES AND SOLDER

  1. 1. CLEAN all dust, dirt and grease from surface to be tested. 2. TAKE A SMALL test pad and moisten with eye dropper by placing approximately 4 drops of water on test pad. Be careful not to over saturate the pad. (Note: Orange coloring of the test pad is normal when reacting to water. Do not be alarmed!) PRESS moistened test pad firmly against surface to be tested and hold for approximately two (2) minutes. RESULTS: If test pad or tested area turns pinkish to dark purple, dangerous levels of lead are present.

FOR CERAMICS, DISHES AND TOYS

  1. Improperly manufactured glazed dishes and ceramics can result in lead absorbing into food and beverages causing lead poisoning. 1. CLEAN all dust, dirt and grease from surface to be tested. 2. TAKE A SMALL test pad and moisten with eye dropper by placing approximately 4 drops of water on test pad. Be careful not to over saturate the pad. (Note: Orange coloring of the test pad is normal when reacting to water. Do not be alarmed!) SLOWLY rub test pad over all patterns containing different colored surfaces and of course, over any chipped or cracked surfaces for a two (2) minute period. RESULTS: If the test pad or tested area turns pinkish to dark purple, dangerous levels of lead are present. Discontinue use of the tested item.

FOR PAINTED WOOD OR METAL SURFACES

  1. 1. CLEAN all dust, dirt and grease from surface to be tested. 2. WITH A CLEAN KNIFE, cut or scrape through all layers of paint to expose bare surface. 3. TAKE A SMALL test pad and moisten with eye dropper by placing approximately 4 drops of water on test pad. Be careful not to over saturate the pad. (Note: Orange coloring of the test pad is normal when reacting to water. Do not be alarmed!) SLOWLYrub test pad over all patterns containing different colored surfaces and of course, over any chipped or cracked surfaces for a two (2) minute period. RESULTS: If test pad or tested area turns pinkish to dark purple, dangerous levels of lead are present.

FOR SOIL

  1. For over 50 years exhaust from America's automobiles, using leaded gasoline, has contaminated the soil in many of our playgrounds and gardens. You can effectively determine the dangerous lead levels by following these directions: 1. Gatherone teaspoon of soil and place in a non-leaded (plastic) container. 2. Mix soil to break up any large pieces. 3. Add two (2) teaspoons white wine vinegar to the soil sample and mix well. Let sample sit overnight at room temperature. The following morning, remove one (1) small drop of of vinegar with eye dropper and place the drop on a dry test pad. Wait two (2) minutes and look for a noticeable pinkish to dark purple tinted color change. RESULTS: If test pad (with sample) turns pinkish to dark purple, dangerous levels of lead are present.

FOR LEAD CRYSTAL

  1. 1. Add two (2) teaspoons of white wine vinegar in item to be tested. Let item sit overnight at room temperature. The following morning, remove one (1) small drop of vinegar with eye dropper and place the drop on a dry test pad. Wait two (2) minutes and look for a noticeable pinkish to dark purple tinted color change. RESULTS: If test pad (with sample) turns pinkish to dark purple, dangerous levels of lead are present.

CLEANING TEST SURFACES

If a surface becomes pink during testing, wash the area with an all-purpose household cleaner and the color will disappear.

RED PAINTED SURFACES

When testing surfaces that are painted red, you must check for "bleeding" of the red paint by moistening household cotton or cotton tipped applicator with a few drops of distilled white vinegar. Rub the moistened cotton on the red surface. If red appears, the lead test pads cannot be used.

PRECAUTIONS

  1. 1. KEEP ALL PRO-LAB® TEST KIT ITEMS AND ANY LEAD-CONTAINING ITEMS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.Once a test pad has been moistened, use immediately. Test pads are not reusable. 3. If you wish to test the same item twice, WASH the item with ordinary all-purpose household cleaner before retesting. 4. If test results are positive, exercise precaution when handling the material. 5. PRO-LAB® lead surface test pads cannot be used to detect lead in water. For testing water, use PRO-LAB'S Lead in Water Test Kit. 6. PRO-LAB® lead surface test pads will not detect lead directly on plaster, a gypsum surface or gypsum dust. 7. When testing soldered food cans, be sure to rub the test pads only ten seconds or less. Longer rubbing times cause the test pads to turn purple, which may mask a positive test for lead.

Ratings and Reviews

Reviews by other users:

"I would definitely recommend this radon test kit. It was simple to administer and the return package provided to send the test kit back to their lab was no expense to me (some tests rely on you to pay for the shipping bak to the lab). The test confirmed low levels of Radon and I feel very comfortable now with the quality of air inside my home."
"If you hire someone to inspect for mold and test it, it costs $300-$400 at the least so this product is a steal (even with the added lab fee). We got quick and professional results within a little over a week. Toxic Black mold was found in our home and we have since move and are are now going to sue the landlord of the last place. Wish me luck!"
"The product was easy to use, and the results were delivered to me very promptly."
"became very expensive once you add up the total cost and realized that more then one sample is going to be sent in for analyzing. Results were vague and customer service was not helpful in answering my questions from the results. I’m not sure they had any idea what I was talking about."
"The test works as advertised, basically you leave the sensor in a non-drafty lower level location for 48 hours and then mail it to the lab so they can analyze the results. My test results were a bit higher than expected but nothing to worry about. This kit saved me the money of having to hire a radon specialist to come in for testing. "
"We have well on our backyard and we use the water from our well in many household chores. I purchased this product to conduct my personal testing on the quality of water from our well. It gives me peace of mind knowing that the quality of water from our well is good. "

"The saliva cortisol test confirmed what I was worried about. It was the lowest priced test I could find and even had a doctor''s assessment to address the results (which were very comprehensive and detailed). I have paid a lot of money in my dr''s office for the exact same thing. Glad I found your company! Thanks! " (Katherine M)
