For home owners:
LIB will thoroughly inspect your home for any lead contamination. XRF testing is similar to an X-ray, it shows the licensed examiner whether lead is present beneath the top layer of paint. This entire inspection process is very thorough, including walls, windows, floors, siding, trim and more. We’ll also check the soil around your foundation so that you have peace of mind when working or playing around the yard.
Once the inspection is complete, we’ll have an exhaustive report of each location and the analysis. You’ll know exactly what your home contains, both inside and out. If lead has been detected in any area of your home, we will consult with you on your options for either controlling the problem or removing it completely. We’ll also give you options for immediate steps to be taken and long-term solutions.

We’ll also get your building in compliance with regulatory agencies. Our service for both schools and daycares includes XRF, dust wipe and water pipe tests, plus a thorough visual inspection of all areas in the structure.
Lead violations for schools and daycares occur more often than you may think. Some of them are due to a direct report from a concerned parent; others are due to lack of a proactive approach and failure to comply with government regulations. It’s important to have your building inspected regularly and make sure you are following the strict guidelines. BNH will make sure your facility is lead free and help you avoid costly problems with regulatory agencies. Schedule your appointment and rest assured that all of your affairs are in order.
