The ‘Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act Of 1992’, often referred to as Title X, emphasized the serious risks of lead to human health, while outlining new federal requirements to help eliminate those risks. ALC Environmental has been at the forefront of interpreting, developing, and educating businesses and individuals about the complex rules and regulations that Title X mandated.


A lead inspection or survey locates, categorizes and evaluates the condition of lead-based paint (LBP) or lead containing materials in a given area. Using specialized, non-destructive testing methods, ALC is able to provide an instant determination if lead-based paint is present. We are also proficient in testing water, air, soil and dust for the presence of lead.

Using Title X protocols, we will categorize and prioritize potential lead hazards utilizing visual inspections, renovation records and tenant and landlord information. Information about the condition, physical characteristics, and location of the paint, allows us to assess the likelihood of lead dust being released in the future and posing a threat to health and safety.

ALC Designers will carefully design your project to ensure the affected lead areas are properly treated according to the applicable federal, state and local regulations. Special attention is paid to ensure workers safety.

ALC Inspectors will carefully monitor your project to make certain the affected lead areas are removed properly throughout the abatement process. Special attention is paid in maintaining the proper air quality to guarantee the safety of our workers. Our Inspectors will ensure your project meets every federal, state and local regulation.

A paint condition assessment is conducted on all painted surfaces to check for signs of cracking, peeling or chipping on all painted surfaces. Our inspectors check for potential generation of lead dust through impact, friction, binding and scraping of painted surfaces.

  • Decontamination
  • Remediation Oversight – We will work with you to make sure the contractors meet the stringent guidelines set forth OSHA, EPA and the Amercian Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) throughout the scope of their work. Our goal is to provide our clients with top service at limited cost while reducing your liability.
  • Post Remediation Testing
  • Moisture Control Plans

In order to deem the project lead-safe and in compliance with regulations, post-clearance testing is performed. Dust wipes are taken and analyzed throughout the project site to guarantee the area is lead-safe.
