Lead Inspections

Was your home built before 1978?

If your home was built before 1978, there may be lead-based paint in your home. Renovation or demolition of these homes can create lead dust which can be inhaled or eaten. Even houses not under renovation for demolition can contain peeling, chipping, or cracking lead-based paint. EPA and Colorado Regulations require any Target housing or Child occupied facilities be tested for lead prior to any work being performed.

What is Target Housing?

Target housing means housing constructed prior to 1978 other than any zero-bedroom dwelling or any housing for the elderly or a person with a disability; except that "target housing" includes housing for the elderly or a person with a disability if a child under 7 years of age resides or is expected to reside in the housing.

What constitutes a Child Occupied Facilities?

Child-occupied facility Child-occupied facility means a building or portion of a building that:
was constructed prior to 1978; is visited regularly by the same child who is under 7 years of age; is visited by the same child on two or more days within any week, with each such visit totaling three or more hours; and is visited by the same child a total of at least sixty hours in one year.
"Child-Occupied Facility" includes, but is not limited to, day-care centers, preschools, or kindergarten classrooms constructed prior to 1978.

What tools do we use to perform the lead inspection? 

We use an XRF Pb200E which is a handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer with the latest in technology available through Viken. This allows us to test your lead paint with no disturbance. We can have instant results on all surfaces so you are not waiting days or weeks for lab results from paint chips. This also helps us control cost to be able to pass on the savings to our clients.
