Superior provides a variety of environmental services as they relate to lead contamination in paint, water, soil, and air. Most commonly, a Lead Paint Inspection is required. A Lead Paint Inspection is: “a surface-by-surface investigation to determine the presence of lead paint and the provision of a report explaining the results of the investigation.” A Lead Paint Inspection will test all painted components, such as windows, walls, doors, siding, etc. to show if that component contains lead paint, and determine how much lead is in the paint. This information is useful if work is done or paint is disturbed on components that contain lead paint.
The Lead Inspection Report does not show if the house or apartment is lead-safe. The Lead Inspection Report only shows if lead paint is present. It does not show the presence and location of lead paint hazards. A Risk Assessment identifies lead hazards and makes recommendations for removing lead paint hazards. A Risk Assessment is a separate service. A Lead Paint Inspection and Risk Assessment may be done together, but are not always done together. Either a Lead Paint Inspection or Risk Assessment can be used to satisfy the lead disclosure requirements for your real estate transactions.
