Children 6 years old and under are most at risk, because their bodies are growing quickly.
Check Your Home for Lead
The First Alert Premium Lead Test Kit checks toys, dishes, and costume jewelry for dangerous amounts of lead. Use it when renovating to check for tainted woodwork or paint. It can even be used to check old pipes for lead, making sure the water supply for your home or office is not contaminated.
Easy and Safe to Use
The kit contains everything you need to test for lead, and the easy-to-understand instructions walk you through how to test items.
