- Deteriorating lead-based paint
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.
