Lead Testing Services   

We offer a variety of lead testing services provided by a Pennsylvania state certified Risk Assessor/Inspector.  We can sample commercial or residential structures.  If your building was built before 1978, you may want to consider this service.  This is particularly important if there are children in the home 6 years old or younger, if a child has an elevated blood lead level, or if anyone is pregnant.  Basement walls, posts, attics, windows, radiators, closets, old play sets in the yard, garages, or an old fence can all be sources of lead poisoning.

Many grant funded rehabilitation projects require lead testing/assessment prior to beginning the work, and clearance testing upon completion.
