What does a lead paint inspection entail for your rental property?
Our inspectors will perform a visual inspection of the entire property. Upon successful completion of the property we will take non intrusive dust samples from the interior of the home. A minimum of one sample is required per living space. More samples may be required based on window locations and age of window. Once the samples are taken they are sent to a local accredited lab and tests are emailed to the inspector.
