LEAD BASED PAINT INSPECTIONS
AMD Environment specializes in lead-based paint inspections and lead paint tests.
Lead paint testing uses X-ray fluorescence (XRF), the state-of-the-art and HUD-specified method for identifying lead-based paint in housing. XRF is fast and non-destructive, and reads through multiple layers of paint (up to 3/8 of an inch) that may be built up on a surface. We use an XRF Analyzer, and perform inspections on:
- Single and multi-family dwellings
- Apartment buildings
- Commercial properties
- Schools and daycare centers
- Medical offices
- Sites under construction
AMD Environmental can fulfill all of your lead paint test and inspection needs, helping you understand and fulfill your obligations in a simple, timely, and cost-effective manner, whether you are:
- Aiming to comply with federal, state and city regulations governing lead-based paint
- Applying for homeowner’s insurance
- Seeking mortgage approval
LEAD BASED PAINT RISK ASSESSMENTS
Abate lead paint and regain peace of mind
A residential lead-based paint risk assessment will discover any lead-based paint hazards.
AMD Environmental lead paint risk assessments include: a visual inspection of the dwelling, an assessment of building history, age, management and maintenance of the dwelling, use patterns, and the number of children under the age of 6 and women of childbearing age who reside or frequent the dwelling. In addition, our [certified] inspectors take a sampling of deteriorated paint, dust and soil for testing in our lab.
Ultimately, the assessment identifies lead hazards and provides an action plan for addressing them, which would include acceptable interim control methods and abatement, based on specific site conditions.
