What Is Lead?


How Does Lead Become Hazardous?

Services Offered


Lead Inspections - A room by room inspection of all painted surfaces or components. Interior and exterior of your home.

Lead Testing - A narrowly focused testing of a specific room, type of component, project area inside or outside the home.

Risk Assessment - While an inspection identifies where Lead-based paint is located, it does not answer if there is a possible health concern. A risk assessment specifically identifies problematic issues that could potentially be an exposure to the dangers of lead.

Clearance Testing - The job is done, but does Lead contamination linger? A clearance test includes dust and/or soil sampling for comparison to EPA/State Lead safe levels.

Soil Sampling - Soil Testing allows us to determine the magnitude of Lead in your environment. Lead in soil is commonly found around the drip line of deteriorating paint. The EPA has maximum allowable amounts based upon children's activities.

Contractors RRP -  Assisting Contractors in meeting their legal responsibilities in meeting EPA/RRP, OSHA, HUD, State and Local laws.
