Prior to renovation, demolition or property transactions, asbestos and/or lead-based paint inspections are often required. Asbestos and lead-based paint inspections include review of building plans/specifications, developing a sampling strategy, and collecting and analyzing samples. Asbestos bulk samples are analyzed utilizing a polarized light microscope (PLM) to determine the presence of asbestos. Lead-based paint samples are typically analyzed utilizing X-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology to determine the presence of lead. Inspection results are tabulated in a format allowing the building owner to take a proactive approach to managing asbestos and/or lead-based paint. As part of Trileaf's comprehensive real estate services, we can provide both asbestos and lead-based paint inspections anywhere.
