  1. Besides affecting signal strength, exposure to Lead paints can cause health problems and that’s one major reason for the ban on lead based paints years ago.

  2. Hi Ryan,

    Not only can Lead paint cause Kidney problems but is the responsible point of many neurological problems if openly exposed to it on a regular basis. I’m not quite sure how such a vast number of the older generation lived with it for so long, oh and signal is mainly affected by hot pipes. good post

  3. Ryan – I didn’t realize that in addition to the obvious health hazards that leaded paint causes, that it created issues with signal strength. We occasionally stage some older homes in the Toronto area. Is there an easy way to determine whether the paint that was used is leaded?

  4. Anne – According to the EPA, if the home was built before 1978, there is a good chance that has had some lead based paint at some time. As far as checking the home, there are some do-it-yourself kits that you can purchase DIY Kits. The validity of these DIY kits can be called into question. For the most accurate test, I would say hire a professional in your area.

  5. Thanks Ryan. I agree that the best way to go is to consult a local professional.

  6. Many times have i been in a embarrassing situation due to lack of signal. further more the worst was when i got locked out during a viewing, some good tips here.
