Lead Inspection and Assessment Services
- XRF lead based paint inspections: X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) is an efficient, accurate and non-destructive method of testing for lead based paint and is used to complete each lead paint inspection.
- Lead dust sampling: Dust sampling is a way to determine the amount of lead in household dust. Lead in dust is produced from friction/ impact and deteriorated surfaces that contain lead based paint. Lead dust sampling and a full lead inspection is required prior to the issuance of a lead safe certificate in New Hampshire.
- TCLP for soils: Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) is a chemical analysis process used to determine whether there are hazardous elements present in a waste.
- Soil sampling: Soil sampling is used to determine the amount of lead in soil where bare soil is present. Bare soil that contains 400 parts per million or more in a child’s play area or 1200 ppm in the rest of the yard is considered to be a lead hazard.
- Risk assessments: Lead risk assessment is a way to determine the overall condition of the property. In order to conduct a full risk assessment, inspection, dust and soil sampling is required.
- State order for lead hazard reduction: ILIS can guide you through the process of lead remediation to comply with state orders.
- Issue certificates of lead-safe: Lead-safe certificates are issued after a complete lead inspection and dust sampling determines that there are no lead based paint hazards present. Lead-safe certificates are issued to obtain rental property insurance, and/or to reduce the cost of rental property insurance. Certificates are also issued after a property has been abated. Certificates can be specific to the interior and/or the exterior of the dwelling.
- Issue certificates of compliance: When a rental property is put under order by the state of NH due to child lead poisoning and lead based paint exposure hazards, the property owner is forced to remove the dwelling from the rental market until all lead hazards are controlled. A certificate of compliance must be issued before the dwelling can return to the rental market.
- Occupant Protection Plan: (OPP) or abatement plan is developed based on the findings from the lead paint inspection/risk assessment. The OPP outlines the preferred method of abatement and highlights the regulations and guidelines that must be followed. An OPP is used by lead abatement contractors to effectively bid on abatement projects.
