What You Need To Know

ABOUT YOUR REMODELING PROJECT!

WHAT TO KNOW?

LEAD CAN BE IN CERAMIC TILE OF

ANY AGE (Even Brand New)

Lead in new ceramic tile, tubs and sinks can still be found today. Lead in paint, is the only thing that is regulated, but could be found in paint older than 1978.

TESTING IS THE KEY

There is a cost effective way to test the tile, fixtures and your project area for hazardous lead levels without damage. We are locally owned/operated and strive to provide the highest level of quality service, with competitive flexible pricing,

DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CONTRACTOR TO ASSUME

THERE IS LEAD OR USE SELF-TESTING KITS!

While it is imperative to test and inspect paint, old cookware, ceramics and porcelain fixtures in your home that were manufactured before the 1980s, it can be reccomended to test all ceramic tiles and bathtub/sink fixtures.

 

Hazardous levels of lead in glaze found in wall and floor ceramic tile, cast iron and steel bathtubs/sinks has NEVER been regulated and is still being used today even in USA made products!

 

ASSUMING and Self-Test Kits will result in additional work and charges that are not necessary. The actual amount of lead present needs to be determined before spending increased prices for unecessary. Self-Test kits do not provide the reliable lead levels needed to determine the projects requirements.

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW?

  1. Within a three-four year period, over 50%  of remodeling projects assuming hazardous lead levels were overcharged for unecessary services.
  2. Self-Test kits are often unreliable and do not provide the detailed information regarding exact lead levels to determine the extent of additional safety/cleanup services required.
  3. Hazardous lead levels could be in paint older than 1978 or ceramic tile of any age (even brand new). Contractors that assume lead is present without testing often end up charging unecessarily for additional lead-related expensive services to complete the remodel.
  4. Professional lead testing by Sherlock's Environmetal provides a cost effective way to  thoroughly test your project area for the exact lead levels to determine the necessary precautions and services needed.  No more overpaying for comprehensive work that can also delay your project when hazardous lead levels are actually not present.
