Lead Testing in New York

Until 1978 when lead was banned, it was used as an additive in paint to help it resist corrosion, dry faster, and maintain durability. However, despite the ban, lead is still present in an alarmingly high percentage of New York City homes built before 1978. Lead paint in perfect condition is not toxic, but it becomes a concern when it degrades into flakes and dust particles.

Regardless of where you reside in New York, AAA Lead Professionals can conduct lead tests, checking for lead presence and contaminants that may have spread as dust to nearby properties. Our lead inspectors undergo specialized training in this field and are exceedingly thorough, inspecting and testing your house’s interior, exterior, paint, pipes, and surrounding soil.

When to Conduct Lead Testing

Having your New York City home or business premises tested for lead is advisable in the following situations:

  • Before disturbing a painted surface
  • Before demolition due to disasters such as storm damage, fire damage, sewage damage, sewage clean up, or mold remediation.
  • Before beginning a renovation or remodeling project
  • If you own or rent a home built before 1978
  • If you or a family member is showing signs of lead poisoning

Serious Health Risks

Lead poisoning is one of the most preventable environmental childhood diseases, impacting hundreds of thousands of children in the U.S. Many laws have been passed over the years to eliminate the threat of this toxic material. The New York local lead law, for example, compels landlords to assess child-occupied houses for lead-based paint dangers at least once a year and repair all lead-based paint issues after a unit is vacated.

Children who are exposed to even low levels of lead can suffer from:

AAA Lead Professional’s lead testers are:

  • Lower IQ and Hyperactivity
  • Behavior and learning problems
  • Hearing problems
  • Stunted growth
  • Anemia

Risks of lead poisoning during pregnancy are also grave, including low birth weight, stillbirth, premature delivery, and miscarriage.

Our Lead Testing Process

At AAA Lead Professionals, our team is EPA-certified. We strictly abide by lead-safe work practices when working with lead.

  • Offer lead paint sampling and analysis of dust and paint chips
  • Perform X-ray fluorescence (XRF) lead-testing to ascertain the lead levels in sealed or painted surfaces in your home.
  • Present a comprehensive report and talk about your options

Lead Test Kit vs. Professional Testing

When it comes to your family’s health, it is better to be safe than sorry. The EPA strongly advises that a certified lead inspector performs all lead-related tests. Well, there are DIY lead test kits available. There are cheaper than professional testing; however, their accuracy is debatable, and they don’t offer the detail that an inspection gives. At AAA Lead professionals, we make the process as efficient, smooth, and hassle-free as possible. Our team can deliver same-day testing and analysis.
