Lead-Based Paint & Asbestos Inspections


Get The Lead Out1

Get the Lead Out, an environmental consulting firm located in Charlotte, North Carolina, provides hazardous material testing and inspections for single-family homes, apartment complexes and institutional facilities. When a home is in need of inspection in Tennessee, Mississippi or Kentucky, Tioga is enlisted to help out with the lead-based paint and asbestos surveys. Tioga has completed dozens of hazardous material inspections for the firm.

For a lead-based paint inspection, Tioga uses a Niton XLP 300A XRF analyzer along with photographs of the unit and representations of deteriorated paint to determine the lead levels. For some projects, a risk assessment is necessary. During a risk assessment, dust wipes and soil samples are collected and sent to a certified lead laboratory for analysis under chain of custody. After inspection is complete, all information is delivered to Get the Lead Out, including an inspection checklist and a diagram for every unit.

When performing an asbestos survey, samples of materials suspected to contain asbestos are collected from the facility in accordance with EPA guidelines and are submitted for analysis. 

Single- and multi-family homes have specific inspection requirements under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing, and Tioga follows every federal regulation requirement during every inspection. 

Since inspections are done in a family’s home, Tioga inspectors make sure to work with property managers and homeowners in order to minimize disturbance to occupants and make the most efficient use of everyone’s time.
