Lead Paint

Are you concerned about peeling paint or lead dust in your home or facility? Was it built prior to 1978? Feel free to contact us to inspect for lead paint.

What is Lead Paint?

Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used in paints prior to 1978. It was incorporated into paints due to its water resistance, durability, washability, and ability to make paint opaque. Ingestion or inhalation of lead-based paints can cause a myriad of health effects including neurological and behavioral effects in children exposed.

Lead Inspection Testing

Are you considering renovating your home and have concerns about lead-based paint? We can inspect your home for the presence of lead-based paint before your renovation project disturbs the material. We offer paint chip and dust wipe sampling.

Lead Clearance Testing

Have you had lead paint removed in your home? Clearance testing is required to clear lead abatement projects once all work has ceased. This testing is used to evaluate the levels of residual lead dust after removal. Indoor Science’s lead inspector is licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health to perform clearance testing.
