While lead poisoning may seem like a thing of the past, it is very much a current situation in many homes unbeknownst to most. Since the mid 80’s, lead has been found in porcelain bathtubs and sinks. Bathtubs have shown high levels of lead leaching, especially old tubs with worn surfaces. You can obtain a lead testing kit from your local home improvement store to check if this may be a safety hazard for you and your family. Budget Refinishers uses lead free coatings, therefore encapsulating the old porcelain and securing your safety. All you will be left with is a new, glossy finish. Please use this information when choosing your refinisher.
