WHAT IS LEAD-BASED PAINT TESTING?
Did you know that one of the materials most commonly used in homes is toxic? Lead-based paint was used in homes until 1978. Lead paint was banned, but older homes still contain traces of lead. How can you know for sure if your home is safe? Hire True Perspective Home Consultants for lead-based paint testing in Vail, Gypsum, Eagle, Silverthorne or Avon, CO.
Conventional lead testing is very invasive and requires many samples that are both damaging to a home with expensive lab fees and repair costs. We use an XRF Gun to test areas of the home for lead paint. XRF Lead testing is noninvasive, so you won’t have to worry about damage. XRF technology allows us to test many surfaces with no additive laboratory analysis cost.
