QUESTION: Who or what can tell me if the lead level is safe in my house in South Carolina? 03 Dec 2008 South Carolina, USA
I need someone or something to tell me if the lead level is safe in my house. Thank you, Dennis
ANSWER: 04 Dec 2008
Being all the way Down Under in Australia, I did not know the answer to your question although I imagine that your health department might help you out with a home lead assessment if anyone in the home has an elevated blood lead level. It's always worth having a blood lead test done by the doctor if you are concerned about exposure to lead. So I sent your question to Leadnet - a listserv with membership of about 750 lead poisoning prevention professionals across the USA, and I only received one answer - please see below.
I hope this helps.

I am a licensed South Carolina Risk Assessor. While we are located in Charlotte NC, I routinely work in South Carolina and in fact (coincidently) will be working very near Travelers Rest today. If you choose to tell this person about me, it would be appreciated.
