Lead testing is performed by using the approved EPA guidelines for contractors or renovators. Evaluation areas will cover both exterior and interior with a blood-testminimum ofat least 20 samples from random areas by using an approved EPA test Kit #1. This method requires the contractor to cut through layers of paint with a utility knife making a cut approximately one inch long by 1/8 inch wide. In most cases the intrusive or property destructive samples are taken in inconspicuous areas that were not normally visible.

The fee for this testing is calculated on the size and age of the structure to be tested. The report for the lead testing is usually issued the same day the samples were taken.
