We provide lead and lead-based paint site evaluations, testing, and clearance in the San Francisco Bay Area.
If you are a homeowner, property manager, or landlord and have received a Notice of Violation for Lead-based Paint, we can help. We can explain (usually…) what the NOV involves, test and provide the lead-based paint clearance documents the SFDBI will require to clear the NOV. It will save you money and time if we have a conversation with your Inspector.

Lead in Water — American Air Testing’s process is accurate and takes about a week to get results.
Although it may not be common knowledge, the city water-supply companies will give you a report on the water quality for free that includes any lead in the water that is delivered to the meter!
Our Lead Water Testing service would be beneficial if you believe there is a possibility that the plumbing from the street to your faucet contains a source of lead leaking into your drinking water.
If your child’s pediatrician received an elevated lead blood level for your child, that physician is required to report it to the CA Department of Public Health. The CDPH will then issue a Notice of Lead-based Paint Violation naming the areas for clean-up!
See these Lead-based Paint Contractors for help to complete the lead-based paint cleanup.
We can then perform the necessary clearance documents for the NOV (Notice of Violation). We will also then provide lead-based paint inspections pre and post removal.
