LEAD BASED PAINT

PLANNING TO BUY OR RENT A PROPERTY
BUILT BEFORE 1978?
Lead-based paints were used in many homes prior to 1978, which is the year that the federal government banned lead-based paints. These paints contain lead, which is a very malleable and durable material. Most documented cases of lead poisoning can be traced to lead contamination resulting from the degradation of such paints. Lead-based paints that are in good condition pose little risk, but those that begin to peel, chip, chalk, or crack do pose a health risk.

SCHEDULE AN LEAD PAINT INSPECTION
The lead-based paint inspector will come to the property and used a refined tool called an XRF Analyzer. This is recommended by the EPA's because the test is completely non-destructive to determine the chemistry of a sample by measuring the fluorescent (or secondary) X-ray emitted from a sample when it is excited by a primary X-ray source.
We test 200+ areas on the interior and exterior of the property during a lead paint inspection.
Inspection results can be given at the time of inspection if payment has already been made, and we also follow up with a fully written report the day after the inspection.
If you live in a home built before 1978, it may contain lead-based paint.
A lead risk assessor can test for lead in painted surfaces and dust throughout the home and test for lead in furniture, soil, water, dinnerware, and ceramics while recommending ways to minimize the exposure of lead in the home.
Price includes up to 10 samples of wipes and soil.
