Commercial Lead Testing
Lead testing uncovers hidden sources
Lead testing by the experts at AMRC can reveal hidden sources of lead. A naturally occurring element present in small amounts in the Earth’s crust, lead can be found in all parts of our environment — the air, soil, and water. Lead, and lead compounds, have been used in a variety of products over the years including pipes and plumbing materials, solders, and most notably paint.
Buildings built before 1978 are likely to contain lead paint. The federal government banned consumer use of lead paint in 1978, and some states enacted legislation earlier than that to curb the use of this dangerous product, but lead paint is still present in millions of homes, sometimes under layers of newer paint. Deteriorating lead paint is a health hazard and requires immediate attention.
