Hire a certified lead professional or firm

To determine if lead is present in your home, first you must hire a certified lead inspector and a certified risk assessor. Certified inspectors use an XRF instrument to measure and identify lead. Certified risk assessors use those findings to determine if any lead found is a lead-hazard. Sometimes, the same professional holds both certifications. To hire a certified lead inspector and risk assessor, use the current listing (updated 07/18/24) below:
