Lead Paint Inspection San Jose CA

POSTED BY on Jan 3 under Lead Inspection San Jose CA

Don's Phone Pics 605I did my first lead inspection of  2013 in San Jose Yesterday.  I’m happy to say that the house is free of  lead-based paint. This San Jose home was built in 1971 on the east side of San Jose. It was recently purchased by a young couple who are expecting their first child.
They wanted to be certain their newborn will be safe from lead hazards and I am delighted to be able to provide them with the results of this lead inspection.

If you have a home built before 1978 there is a probability that it contains some lead-based paint. If you have a family or are planning a family it is a great idea to have your home tested for lead-based paint and the hazards from deteriorated lead-based paint. The picture on the left is from a house in San Francisco. I tested this wall and found it was indeed lead-based paint. There was a large quantity of paint chip debris in the yard that would be accessible to any children playing in the yard.

We service San Jose as well as the rest of the Bay Area, if you are interested in having your home inspected for lead-based paint call or email us and we’ll provide you with an estimate to perform your lead-based paint inspection. We also test for lead dust, soil contamination, and lead in the water system. We can also test toys and other consumer products for lead as well.

    Is there a company that does Lead testing in Salt Lake City? I am looking to buy and old house, but I want to make sure that there isn’t a ton of lead paint everywhere. http://www.aerolitegroup.com/lead-testing.html

    Yes,
    Contact the Salt Lake City Health Departmen (Childhood Lead Prevention Branch if they have one) They should be able to direct you to a list of certified inspectors.
    Be sure the inspector has an XFR instrument; inspectors without instrument cannot properly conduct a lead-based paint inspection. Be sure they are following the protocol found in the HUD Guidelines, Chapter 7.

    Good luck,

    Don
