As a licenced Lead Tester and Risk Assessor, I can help you do several things:
- Locate sources of lead that may be a hazard to your family.
- perform testing in accordance with EPA rules before remodeling or repair work is done.
- test for lead in a property you are thinking of purchasing.
Lead located within your home is not necessarily a health risk. However it can be a hazard if it can be ingested or inhaled by your family members including pets.
What we do:
- Determine the location of any lead within your home.
- Document what the levels of lead are in those locations.
- Assess whether they are a health risk to you and your family.
- Provide the information you need to correct any lead hazard.
