Until the late 1970's lead-based paint (LBP) was used in homes, schools and commercial buildings. As the paint ages, it generates lead dust which, if ingested, can result in lead related illnesses including anemia, learning disabilities, hearing loss, and behavioral changes.
Because of the potential adverse impact of lead paint on public health and welfare, federal and state laws and regulations are in place to minimize the impact. We have the tools and expertise to provide you with an accurate determination of the lead content of any painted or coated surfaces. Tioga LBP inspectors and risk assessors use Niton 300A XLP X-Ray Fluorescence lead-based paint analyzers to obtain instantaneous readouts of lead content in coated surfaces without taking destructive samples. Our fast turnaround of test results means contractors can get to work quickly.
If you are considering the purchasing, renovating, repairing or painting a home or child-occupied facility built prior to 1978, make our team of professionals your first point of contact.
