Lead is a well known toxin that can show up in many sources in new and old homes, buildings and industrial facilities. Lead can have a variety of negative impacts on the body, and is particularly harmful to children with developing brains and nervous systems (it has been linked to lower IQ’s and other development issues).
NED analyzes paint chips, dust, air, water, and soil for lead based paint content. Samples are analyzed by Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy. Lead inspection clients are furnished with a comprehensive report including analytical data.
