If you own a home built before 1978, inevitably there are some traces of lead within the components of your home. This can be highly hazardous to the health of a home's inhabitants, especially if you are planning for any remodeling or refurnishing in your home. If your home indeed does have lead it is imperative to work lead-safe in order to protect your family's health.
An XRF (x-ray fluorescence) analyzer can provide independent proof as to whether or not lead is present in a home. XRFs can pinpoint exact concentrations of lead in specific components in a house, while self-test kits purchased over the counter can only tell of the presence of lead and are costly as well as inefficient when testing an entire home. All XRF testing by SRC's Lead Hazard Control department is done in accordance with HUD, EPA and Minnesota Department of Health standards of practice.
Paint Inspection Risk Assessment (PIRA)
*Report includes all areas that tested positive for lead, an evaluation of the hazard based on the condition of the surface and a monitoring list of future concerns
Limited Risk Assessment Testing
Save on costs of EPA enforced lead-safe work practices!
After any remodeling project is completed, a house should be tested to be sure that no Lead Hazards were created during the construction process.
