AirMD is an environmental testing and consulting company that provides lead testing and inspections. The company is made up of scientists and consultants who are experts and use Florida-of-the-art equipment to acquire accurate results. If lead is found in your home, AirMD will provide you with a protocol for lead removal and refer you to a professional in our network of lead abatement companies. After abatement, the consultant will perform a post abatement test to ensure that all lead has been removed. Also, all samples are sent to an independent laboratory for confirmation.
Lead may be found in paint, dust or soil and is a serious problem because it can enter the body through ingestion or inhalation. To avoid the health risks associated with lead poisoning, it’s important to have your City home or business tested by a licensed, professional lead testing company to determine if you have any exposure. Depending on the level of exposure, lead can cause damage to the nervous system including, headaches, high blood pressure, digestive problems or muscle and joint disorders.
The two methods of lead testing are:
Federal regulations require that property sellers provide lead disclosures to buyers who are purchasing a property built before 1978, however lead may be present in newer properties as well so testing is advised. One of the first things competed when moving into a new property is to start painting and remodeling which can cause lead based paint (LBP) chips or lead based paint dust that can be inhaled/ingested by occupants causing serious medical issues.
Lead inspections identify lead in materials including paint and finished surfaces; a lead abatement protocol is required if lead is detected, to ensure all of the affected areas are identified and removed properly. The lead protocol details the proper handling of the materials in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA). Understanding local, Florida and federal regulations is necessary to protect property owners and workers from unnecessary liability. A concise lead abatement protocol report is critical for the success of any lead abatement project. AirMD’s consultants have completed thousands of lead inspections with protocol development on facilities including residential, large commercial buildings, governmental, healthcare and municipal buildings.
