Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death. Children 6 years old and under are most at risk, because their bodies are growing quickly.

Research suggests that the primary sources of lead exposure for most children are:

  • Deteriorating lead-based paint
  • Lead contaminated dust and 

  • Lead contaminated residential soil

Lead based paint can be easily identified through a simple Lead Based Paint Survey. Grimes & Associates offers an extensive and complete lead based paint survey, conducted according to the guidelines and procedures outlined in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's document entitled: Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing, published June 1995 (Revised 1997).

Grimes & Associates uses non-destructive "state of the art" XRF technology (X-ray Fluorescence) to identify the existence of lead based paint

Grimes & Associates has performed hundreds of lead based paint surveys. We have performed a diverse range of lead based paint surveys for municipal agencies, financial institutions, realtors, property management firms, commercial and industrial properties, apartment complex owners, and residential home owners.
