Lead Based Paint Testing
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 lead from your home.
At Air Care & Restoration, we understand how much stress lead pollutants can cause to you and your home. Therefore, we go above and beyond to provide an in-depth guide of how to fix these hazards.
Our job is to make you aware of the harmful effects of these pollutants and how to get rid of them fast.
Lead Poison Test
Air Care & Restoration personnel perform lead poison testing using a portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer. This device allows us to test for lead in coatings, dust, and other materials. Additionally, we collect samples of dust and paint chips. Then they are sent to a certified lab for confirmation.
Upon final review, our technicians write a report to summarize the results in the field and confirm our lab's test results.
Lead Testing Procedures
Containment of these possible toxins is required in order to prevent further contamination. Our staff carries 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.
This process will remove the toxins in the trim and walls. Lead dust is then vacuumed using High Efficiency Particle Air filtration to eliminate air pollution. Finally, 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. As a result, all toxic materials collected in our lead test are disposed of according to local hazardous waste regulations.
In conclusion, an abatement protocol will be written for each case, while the clean-up is supervised by a Lead Certified supervisor.
This assures our technicians that your home is free of lead pollutants.
