Properties built prior to 1978 may contain materials painted with harmful lead based paint. Federal, state, and some local laws require that painted building components be regularly inspected and tested prior to any professional removal or disturbance.
Ingesting or inhaling lead paint can result in elevated blood levels (EBL) of lead and potentially lead poisoning. Young children are at risk because they may chew on painted surfaces and crawl on floors where leaded paint dust will settle. Children exposed to leaded paint can suffer with disabilities, lowered I.Q. scores, hearing loss, behavioral problems, and even death. Adults can suffer with reproductive problems, high blood pressure, and nervous system damage.
Every year ENVIROCHECK performs thousands of residential and commercial lead based paint inspections for homeowners, property managers, schools, hospitals, insurance companies, construction companies and for litigation support. ENVIROCHECK employs state licensed consultants. We have an accredited in-house laboratory for lead paint analysis.
We are committed to helping property owners make informed decisions to ensure public health and safety.

Our technicians use an XRF (X-ray fluorescence) device to measure the amount of lead in paint. They collect paint chip, dust or soil samples, which are sent to an accredited laboratory for analysis. The inspections are documented in reports describing:
