What to Do if the Test is Positive

If your home test kit tested positive in any area, please visit the Scott County Lead Information page for more information.

Also, we recommend that any child (ages 6 and under) spending time in a house that tests positive for lead receive a blood test for lead from a doctor's office.

Your child may qualify for free testing through Scott County. Please call: (563) 326-8618 to schedule a Blood Lead Test.

Additional Home Lead Test Kits are available online or at your local hardware store.
