The presence of environmental hazards can depress property value and increase owner liability. Thorough and accurate testing is a key part of the effort to eliminate hazards. Our professional lead services include Lead-Based Paint (LBP) Inspections/ Risk Assessments, Lead-Based Paint Abatement, Lead-Based Paint Abatement Project Design, Lead-Based Paint Project Management, and Project Clearance Sampling. All testing to determine the presence of lead in paint, dust, water, and soil should be performed by a state licensed professional. Lead-Based Paint inspections are just as important as the regular home inspection, so be sure to hire a state-certified Lead Inspector or Risk Assessor.

Various federal and state agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) have developed their own sets of requirements and recommendations. All these agencies agree that the lead hazards expand far beyond paint. Other common sources for lead are dust, soil, solder, water pipes, and water treatment systems.

Lead exposure has increasingly become a major concern in both the public and private sector.

Lead is a strong poison. Even small amounts can cause permanent damage to young children. Lead can cause learning disabilities, behavioral problems, sterility and miscarriages, premature births, low birth weight, and stomach disorders.
