Lead Poison Test
With our extensive background in the lead testing industry, we are very familiar with all of the potential contaminants in your home. We have the knowledge to determine the best way to test and remove the lead from your home. At Air Care & Restoration, we understand how much stress lead pollutants can cause on you and your home. We go above and beyond to provide in-depth guidance along the way. Our job is to make you aware of the harmful effects of these pollutants and how to get rid of them.
Lead Poison Test
Air Care & Restoration personnel conduct lead testing using a portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer. This device allows us to test for lead in coatings, dust, and other materials. Additionally, samples of dust and paint chips are collected and sent to a certified lab for confirmation. Upon final review, a report is written to summarize the results of the field and lab test results.
Lead Testing Procedures
Containment of these possible toxins is required in order to prevent further contamination. Our staff is equipped with the proper protective equipment to prevent exposure to airborne lead containing dust. During lead testing, lead contaminated paint is removed by either wet sanding or scraping. These processes remove the toxins in the trim or walls. Lead dust is vacuumed using High Efficiency Particle Air filtration and all lead contaminated waste is collected in 6-mil polyethylene bags.
Beyond the details described on our Lead Paint Removal page, we take special care to dispose of these toxic materials. The materials collected in our lead test are disposed of according to local hazardous waste regulations. In general, an abatement protocol will be written for each case and the work supervised by a Lead Certified Supervisor.
