Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death. Children six years old and under are most at risk because their bodies are growing quickly. AllCheck Inspections offers two different types of lead testing.
Our on-site lead inspection involves the use of impregnated screening pads that will detect lead in building material to as little five ppm (parts per million). Up to ten different locations throughout the structure will be tested and the test results will be provided at time of inspection.
AllCheck Inspections can also provide laboratory testing when requested. These tests will provide an exact measurement in parts per million for each sample. Soil, dust, or paint samples can be taken. Typically, multiple samples are taken so an overall understanding of the entire premise can be documented. Lab tests for lead are billed per sample taken and generally take three to five days to return from the laboratory. Results will be emailed when received.
