Professional Lead Safe Services
A visual examination and collection of environmental samples by an inspector or risk assessor and analysis by an accredited laboratory upon completion of an abatement project, interim control intervention, or maintenance job that disturbs lead-based paint (or paint suspected of being lead-based). The clearance examination is performed to ensure that lead exposure levels do not exceed standards established by the EPA TSCA 403, and that any cleaning following such work adequately meets those standards.

Lead risk assessments include an investigation of the age, history, management, and maintenance of the dwelling, and the number of children under age 6 and women of childbearing age who are residents; a visual assessment; limited environmental sampling (i.e., collection of dust wipe samples, soil samples, and deteriorated paint samples); and preparation of a report identifying acceptable abatement and interim control strategies based on specific conditions.

Lead Safe, LLC utilizes Niton XLp 300 portable XRF lead testing equipment. The XLp 300 portable XRF has unrivaled lead-based paint screening capabilities: No inconclusive results and no substrate corrections mean that you never need to take paint-chip samples -- that means no paint scraping, and no inspection delays.
An instrument that can determine lead concentration in paint films in milligrams per square centimeter(mg/cm2), settled dust wipe samples micrograms per wipe(µg/wipe), soil in parts per million (ppm), and air samples in micrograms per cubic meter (µg/m3) using the principle of x-ray fluorescence (XRF). Not all XRF instruments are created equally! We only use XRF instrumentation that has no inconclusive range and require no substrate corrections.
