Lead Removal

Lead has been acknowledged as a harmful environmental contaminant. It may be among the most prevalent environmental threats to children’s health in New Jersey and the US generally. Poor lead removal can amplify the risk of exposure, which is why such assignments should always be left to EPA-certified experts, like our team.

What do we know about Lead

Lead and its Associated Hazards

Lead is a naturally occurring element and heavy metal in our environment.

Historically, it was widely used in industrial processes and commercial products such as gasoline, paint, cosmetics, spices, and pottery.

Throughout the 20th century to the present day, lead’s harmful effects on human physiological and behavioral health have become increasingly understood by public health experts.


Lead exposure occurs when people encounter lead in their environment. This can be through old household paint, contaminated soil, or other sources. Exposure is determined by measuring the concentration of lead in a person’s blood.


Lead exposure occurs when lead has been introduced into the bloodstream by ingestion or inhalation of lead dust. Our bodies cannot distinguish lead from other minerals, like iron or calcium, which our bodies need. Lead is then deposited in our organs as well as our brain and bone marrow.


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) sets the threshold for elevated blood lead levels. Lead exposure can be of particular concern children because it can cause:

  • Nervous system damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Learning disabilities like attention-deficit disorder
  • Decreased intelligence.
  • Behavioral problems
  • Speech and language problems
  • Hearing damage
  • Decreased muscle and bone growth.
  • Poor muscle coordination


Children under the age of six and pregnant women are at the highest risk for exposure. Any lead that a pregnant woman is exposed to transfers to the fetus and is present at birth, and small children have a high rate of hand-to-mouth contact.


Identifying Lead-Based Hazards

Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, Chalking, cracking, or damaged paint) is a hazard and needs immediate attention. It may also be a hazard when found on surfaces that get a lot of wear and tear, such as windows and windowsills, doors and door frames, stairs, railings, banisters, and porches.

Lead dust can form when lead-based paint is scrapped, sanded, or heated. Dust also forms when painted surfaces bump or rub together. Lead chips and dust can reside on surfaces and objects that people touch, settled dust can reenter the air when people vacuum, sweep, or walk through the affected area.

Qualified to do necessary inspections

Visual vs Dust Wipes

Visual inspections

  • For municipalities that perform visual assessments, we examine rental dwellings for deteriorated paint or visible surface dust debris or residue.


  • Paint has deteriorated when it is pooling, chipping, chalking, or cracking. Tack and nail holes, small hairline cracks, and other surface imperfections may not be considered deteriorated paint.


  • We look for deteriorated paint on all painted building components, especially any walls, windows, or trim. We also look at surfaces that experience friction or impact. When two surfaces slide across each other or strike one another, the painted surface may become deteriorated. Examples of friction and impact surface are doors, windows, floors, and trim areas.


  • We look for paint chips or dust from painting activities that were not cleaned up and paint residue on the floors, which could be a hazard for small children.


Dust Wipe Sampling

  • Dust wipe sampling is collected by wiping a representative surface, including floors (both carpeted and uncarpeted), interior windowsills, and other similar surfaces, and testing in accordance with a method approved by HUD.


  • These samples must be undertaken properly to ensure that results are accurate, N.J.A.C 5:17 contains requirements for dust wipe sampling. In addition, Appendix 13.1 of the HUD Guideline for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing provides the protocol for sample collection
  • It is recommended that, where dust wipe sampling has been performed, a visual inspection should also occur.
