Lead Based Paint Testing

Our risk assessors and inspectors perform lead-based paint (LBP) inspections, risk assessments and clearance inspections in accordance with state, the USEPA, and/or the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations and for OSHA purposes. Inspections are performed in buildings using either an X-ray fluorescence analyzer (XRF) or the collection of bulk paint samples to test painted surfaces for lead in each sample location. XRF technology is a non-invasive, non-destructive means to determine the presence of lead in paint, even in painted surfaces several layers below the surface.

In some instances, bulk sample collection of lead paint may be necessary. These samples are sent to accredited laboratories for analysis. Qualtek also has the expertise to test surface dust, water, and bare soil for lead content.
