  • Lead-Based Paint

    Elite Environmental Consulting is certified by the California Department of Public Health and the Environmental Protection Agency to perform Lead-Based Paint Inspections, Lead-Based Paint Risk Assessments, and Lead Clearance Testing. If your home was built before 1978 you may have suspect lead-based Paint.

    Note: Federal Law requires that individuals receive certain information before renting or buying pre-1978 housing: Landlords must disclose known information about lead-based paint and paint hazards before leases take effect. These leases must include a disclosure form pamphlet about lead-based paint. Sellers must also disclose known information about lead-based paint and paint hazards before selling a house. Contracts must include a disclosure form and buyers have up to 10 days to check for lead hazards. Federal law also requires that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb paint in homes, condos, offices, commercial sites, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and trained to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

    Lead / Health

    Lead was once a common additive found in paints of pottery glazes, gasoline, indoor plumbing, and various other materials and objects. Today we understand lead to be a toxic that poses serious health risks for individuals with either intense or prolonged exposure to lead-containing materials. Adults can experience lasting complications such as high blood pressure, hypertension, headaches, irritability, low appetite, and reduced sensation, but it is children under the age of six who are particularly at risk and vulnerable to more permanent side effects of lead poisoning due to leads ability to interfere with the brain and nervous system processes. Developmental and behavioral problems such as attention issues, aggression, and reduced IQ can occur even in cases of mild lead poisoning.
    The most common ways lead can enter the body is through inhalation or ingestion by normal hand-to-mouth activities like playing and eating.
    Unlike other health issues, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. HUD estimates that at least 24 million American homes still contain lead-based paint risks and lead poisoning continues to be a major health problem for children under the age of six.

    If you own or rent housing built before 1978, if you regularly visit an older home or childcare facility, or if a friend/relative has been diagnosed with lead poisoning, you should consider testing your property, your children, and yourself for harmful levels of lead. Buyers purchasing real estate, landlords, and construction crews performing repairs, renovations, or remodels on homes built before 1978 are also advised to be aware of the potential risk of lead poisoning.

    Lead-Based Paint Inspection is defined by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a surface-by-surface investigation to determine the presence or absence of Lead-Based Paint. The inspector will perform a visual inspection of the property, looking for potential lead-based paint hazards such as peeling, chipping, or flaking paint, and examine settled dust samples on window sills, doorways, and floors to see if they contain lead. This type of testing will determine the lead content of each type of surface that is sampled.

    Lead-Based Paint Inspections

    Elite Environmental Consulting will conduct a thorough investigation to identify the location, quantity and condition of any suspect Lead-Based Paints and lead containing paints within the building followed by a comprehensive report to document findings. If Lead-Based Paint or lead containing paint is present, our report will indicate the affected materials, location, extent of damage and provide recommendations.
    Lead-Based Paint may be present on any painted substrate or ceramic tile within a building and should be inspected prior to renovation or demolition.

    A lead dust clearance inspection must be completed once remediation has been completed to insure lead contamination is not present.
