Lead Based Paint Identification
Lead based paint is a paint film containing lead, which is a heavy metal used to speed the drying process, increase durability and retain a fresh appearance. In 1978 it was banned from use due to its toxicity to humans. Lead based paint toxins can be easily transmitted by touching walls or items and ingesting it by contacting our eyes, nose, mouth or food that enters our bodies.
United Analytical Services has extensive experience with identifying the presence of lead based paint with our qualified professionals. For each project we are brought into, you will receive a thorough assessment clearly identifying the contaminated area. Our assigned team will create an inspection report and abatement design specification to ensure the restriction of the unsafe material, project manage the removal process and test to ensure a safe environment.
Our firm employs numerous IDPH licensed lead inspectors, lead risk assessors and lead supervisors for projects including homes, apartment complexes, housing authorities, industrial facilities, manufacturing facilities, municipalities and bridge and roadway structures. United Analytical Services designed and managed one of the first lead abatement projects for the Illinois Capital Development Board which involved the conversion of an Illinois National Guard Indoor Firing Range.
