Lead paint surveys
Our lead paint survey experts help building owners and managers determine the presence of lead paints within their premises.
Buildings constructed prior to 1980 are at risk of containing lead paint, and our lead paint testing is tailored to the building characteristics and the client's requirements.
Our lead survey team uses various techniques such as paint chip sampling, wipe swabbing, and x-ray fluorescence (XRF). We can facilitate post-shift biological monitoring for total lead body burden thus providing a complete site risk management package for our clients.
Lead paint removal service
Lead paint removal projects are usually completed by clearance testing, which generally refers to combined visual and quantitative environmental evaluation in order to establish the absence of lead paint hazards in the area being cleared. This follows lead paint hazard controls or paint-disturbing.
Sysco Environmental also provides services to assist with lead paint removal, including contractor oversight and air monitoring known as lead reassurance air test.
Lead paint regulations compliance
Lead paint inspection and testing is always required as part of due diligence prior to demolition or renovation of buildings as required by the 'CDM regulations' and 'The Control of Lead at Work Regulations'.
