A comprehensive analysis of the lead content of painted surfaces inside and outside of the home. We use an XRF Analyzer for inspections. The XRF measures the lead content of all painted surfaces and then classifies the results as either positive or negative for lead-based paint. The painted surfaces are also classified as to the condition of the paint. Clients who are going to perform extensive renovation work are highly encouraged to take advantage of this analysis. Results are obtained on-site and the report is usually available within 48 hours.
Clearance Testing is performed to make sure that the cleaning procedure after the renovation or abatement work was done correctly and to ensure that the work has been acceptably completed and the space is safe for reoccupation. This type of testing also allows the contractor to establish that, as of a particular date and time, the space was in a lead safe condition.
Post-renovation lead dust clearance testing to determines whether the work area has been sufficiently cleaned of lead dust after renovation and abatement activities. Dust wipes are collected and sent for lab analysis to identify the presence of lead dust.
Air Sampling & Monitoring
Provides for an initial determination and concentration of the presence of lead, inclusive of ambient air sampling and employee sampling and on-going monitoring.
Lead Abatement Plans and Specifications Development
Plans and specifications provide a legal document to ensure contractor compliance for a cost effective and safe abatement project. When removal, encapsulation or enclosure is the appropriate response for lead containing materials, we can provide or consult with you on abatement plans and specifications, and review bidding information from abatement contractors.
Abatement Management & Supervision
On-site observation and general oversight of abatement activities to ensure compliance with State, EPA, OSHA and DNR lead specifications and regulatory requirements. This includes activities such as air sampling and monitoring, dust wipe sampling, and job site documentation.
Our services include asbestos surveys, inspections, remodeling and demolition inspections, sampling and air monitoring. We also offer project design and consultation services for your asbestos abatement project.
Asbestos inspections are comprehensive assessments of a structure to identify materials that may contain asbestos, and include sampling and lab analysis to determine the presence and type of asbestos. Asbestos inspections are invasive as pieces of building materials have to be removed from the structure and sent for lab analysis to determine the presence and type of asbestos.
Demolition Inspection and Sampling
When a home or building will undergo demolition, a comprehensive inspection of the (non-occupied) structure will identify asbestos containing materials prior to demolition activity. Samples are taken from the structure and sent for lab analysis to determine the presence and type of asbestos.
