Our Systematic Lead Inspection and Testing Process

Our process begins with a detailed visual inspection of your property. We focus on areas likely to contain lead due to their age or condition. This might include painted surfaces, water pipes, and surrounding soil. After the initial assessment, our team collects samples from these areas which might include paint chips, dust, water, and soil. These are then analyzed in our advanced laboratory facilities to detect even trace amounts of lead

Reporting and Documentation

⦁ Documentation of Tested Material

This includes a detailed description of where samples were taken and why these areas were suspected of having lead contamination.

⦁ Lead Concentration Levels

We report the specific levels of lead found in each sample to provide a clear picture of the extent of exposure

⦁ Certificates of Compliance

We provide all necessary documentation to help you comply with local and federal regulations. These are essential for renovation or demolition projects.

⦁ Risk Assessment and Recommendations

Our report not only outlines the current risks but also recommends steps to mitigate these risks. This may include strategies for remediation or lead removal to reduce health risks effectively

What Do the Lead Tests Include?

Our lead testing services are thorough and can be broken down into several key assessments:

⦁ Paint Inspection

We determine the level of lead in the painted surfaces of your property

⦁ Water Tests

We take into consideration that your drinking water might have passed through lead-containing service lines. Thus, we test for lead in your water to ensure its safety.

⦁ Soil Assessment

Lead can also be present in the soil around your property, especially in older neighborhoods. We collect soil samples and analyze them to evaluate the potential risk of exposure to the environment.

Risks Associated with Short and Long-Term Lead Exposure

Lead is a potent neurotoxin that poses significant health risks, particularly to children and pregnant women. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), lead exposure can lead to cognitive impairments, developmental delays, and various other serious health issues. Adults exposed to lead may experience high blood pressure, joint and muscle pain, difficulties with memory or concentration, and other health problems.

For pregnant women, lead exposure can be particularly dangerous. The CDC outlines that lead can affect a developing fetus, leading to premature birth and reduced growth among other risks. For more information on lead exposure during pregnancy, have a look at the CDC's page on lead prevention for pregnant women.

Regular lead testing is crucial due to the presence of lead-based materials in over 20 million U.S. housing units. Ensuring that your property is inspected by professionals like us can prevent exposure and preserve the health and well-being of occupants.
