Hi Ann .......yes there is a kit you can use to test this is one of those
I would start with two of the kits .....the cost is nominal.........if you have small children that might put a chip in their mouth or after the tests that you feel uncomfortable then by all means sure .........to put your mind at ease the more coats of paint you put over something the more encapsulated it becomes and less of a danger........you have to worry about chipping if and when it gets to that coat of lead
