LEAD BASED PAINT INSPECTIONS
AMD Environment specializes in lead based paint inspections. X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) is the state-of-the-art method for identifying lead based paint. It is a quick, non-destructive testing method that can read through multiple layers of paint (up to 3/8 of an inch) on a surface. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) specifies XRF sampling as the method of choice for lead-based paint inspections in housing. We use a Hueresis XRF Analyzer and perform inspections on single and multi-family dwellings, as well as apartment buildings, commercial properties, schools, daycare centers, medical offices and sites under construction. We can perform all of your inspection needs, whether it is for home owner’s insurance, getting approval for a mortgage, or most importantly, to comply with federal, state and city regulations governing lead based paint. AMD Environmental can help you understand and fulfill these obligations in a simple, timely, and cost-effective manner.
LEAD BASED PAINT RISK ASSESSMENTS
A lead-based paint risk assessment of a residential dwelling is to discover any lead-based paint hazards. A risk assessment includes 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 to sampling of deteriorated paint, dust and soil. A Lead Based Paint Risk Assessment identifies lead hazards and provides an action plan for dealing with any identified hazards, which would include acceptable abatement and interim control methods, based on specific site conditions.
