Information For Homeowners

In addition to the testing achieved by a Lead-based Paint Inspection, a Risk Assessment tells you if there are any sources of exposure to lead from paint (such as peeling paint and lead dust). It also tells you what actions to take to address these hazards. Accredited’s trained professionals use a range of methods when checking your home, including a portable x-ray fluorescence devices to determine the content of lead in the paint on your walls; visual inspection of paint condition and location; and lab tests household dust from areas throughout your home. Risk Assessments are recommended in homes where children have been tested and shown to have elevated blood lead levels.
