Lead Management Services
Our lead management services help detect and eliminate lead contamination in soil, air, or water
Because the dangers of lead were not discovered for many years, there are many businesses and residences that were painted with lead-based paints. It can be difficult to tell if a child has lead poisoning because there are few if any symptoms that surface for most people. However, loss of attention, learning disabilities, physical impairments in growth and hearing as well as lowered IQ scores are all results of this disease. Adults with a high degree of lead exposure may have problems with the nervous system, heart, kidneys, bones, and reproductive system among others. H2 Environmental Consulting Services wants to help you determine whether you and your family have been exposed to lead and we provide a number of services to that end.
Who is Affected by Title X Regulations?
Title X was an act of congress designed to address the hazards of residential lead. Part of this law requires landlords to provide information to possible renters about lead-based paint hazards and sellers to disclose any known issues with lead-based paint prior to the home sale. Up to 10 days are also given to buyers to conduct inspections for the identification of lead hazards. Public buildings and schools are also protected under these types of programs, and occupational awareness is also addressed.
