According to the EPA, 24% of homes built between 1960 and 1978 have lead-based paint. Lead exposure can have serious consequences to one’s health, especially children. Satori’s EPA certified lead professionals determine where lead paint exists, assess paint conditions, and provide recommendations for abatement, encapsulation, or interim controls.
Problems arise when paint is disturbed (such as during a renovation) or when paint starts deteriorating. A few signs of lead exposure include joint and muscle pain, high blood pressure, memory problems, and mood changes. At high levels of exposure, lead begins to attack the brain and the central nervous system. Signs and symptoms usually don’t appear until dangerous levels have been reached. Ingestion of lead is the primary source of childhood poisoning. Contaminated air, drinking water and soil are among other sources.
If your home was built before 1978, it may contain lead-based paint on the inside and out. Using x-ray fluorescence (XRF) non-destructive testing, Satori Group provides property owners with a cost-effective assessment of paint surfaces.
