We can detect lead using our X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) equipment. The test is non intrusive, won’t damage the surface and can search down through 60-layers of paint.

This on-site investigation can determine the presence, location and sometimes the severity of lead-based paint hazards. Lead paint will likely be found in houses built prior to 1978; it was at this time that the use of lead-based paint was outlawed in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The XRF device will scan up to 60-layers of paint to determine if lead is present.

  • Radon test takes a minimum of 48 hours

  • Test includes method(s) to prevent or detect interference with testing conditions or with the testing device itself

  • When short-term test ranging from 2-7 days, EPA recommends that *closed-house conditions be maintained
  • *closed-house conditions means keeping all windows closed, keeping doors closed except for normal entry and exit, and not operating fans or other machines which bring in air from outside. Fans that are part of a radon-reduction system or small exhaust fans operating for only short periods of time may run during the test.


  • Why get a lead inspection?

    Government regulations, such as the U.S. EPA-issued Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, have increased public awareness of the need for lead paint testing. Lead poisoning is a well-known health threat to children, but lead exposure can cause serious issues for adults as well, including high blood pressure and dementia. Environmental professionals involved in demolition, renovation, or repair projects are particularly vulnerable to inhaling dust contaminated with lead or other toxins such as Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) metals.

    Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers meet the rigorous demands of lead paint testing and are the only lead paint analyzers available that are supported by an ideal Performance Characteristic Sheet (PCS). What’s more, our analyzers address the safe work practices required in many commercial and industrial structures, and have demonstrated proficiency in the ELPAT Program.

    • No inconclusive readings
    • No substrate correction
    • No false positive/false negative readings.

    Choose the same analyzers used by the U.S. EPA and other regulatory agencies.

  • What does thermal imaging show in a home inspection?

    When used properly, thermal imaging can uncover certain hidden issues such as insulation problems, air drafts, electrical hazards, and moisture intrusion.

  • Why is thermal imaging of homes important?

    Because wet insulation conducts heat faster than dry insulation, thermographic scans of roofs can often detect roof leaks. In addition to using thermography during an energy assessment, you should have a scan done before purchasing a house; even new houses can have defects in their thermal envelopes.
