We perform the following types of tests for lead:
- Paint – we use an XRF lead paint analyzer that gives results on the spot.
- Soil – this takes about a week to get results
- Water* – this also takes about a week to get results
City water supply companies will give you a report on the water quality for free that will include any lead in the water. You would only want to test the water in your home if you think the plumbing from the street to your faucet contains a source of lead that can leach into your drinking water.
