Offering Reliable Lead Testing
Thanks to some beneficial uses, lead is still fairly common. However, it can be toxic to humans and animals. Despite this, lead-based products, including paint, were commonly used in construction for decades and many older buildings built before 1978 still contain these lead-based materials. If left untreated, this substance can cause lead poisoning, a serious issue that typically results in life-long medical problems.
Lead Inspections and Risk Assessments are extremely important first steps to making more informed decisions on managing lead hazards. At American Environmental Group, our team of experienced Environmental Surveyors can carefully test your building for the presence of lead and lead-based materials that could present this health problem. We offer comprehensive Lead Surveys and test results that allow you to develop effective solutions.
Symptoms of Lead Poisoning
Are you or anyone you know showing signs of lead poisoning? They might be if they’re experiencing these symptoms:
- Short attention span
- Poor appetite
- Behavioral changes (hyperactivity)
- Changes in consciousness
- Sight and hearing loss
Our team has the skills and equipment necessary to conduct a thorough Lead Survey, including checking the air for the presence of lead-based paint dust, which is one of the leading causes of lead poisoning.
What Does a Lead-Based Paint Inspection Entail?
A Lead-Based Paint Inspection involves a surface-by-surface investigation to determine if lead-based paint is present in a residential, industrial, or commercial structure, including in both common areas and exterior structure. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend that only a Certified (Licensed) Lead-Based Paint Inspector or Risk Assessor should conduct these surveys.
