Welcome to the CenKan Lead Testing, LLC services information page. We strive to be the premier provider in Central Kansas of lead based paint testing. Our goal is to inform and educate our customers of their specific lead based paint issues and give them attainable options to deal with the hazards.

Below is a short list of the services we offer:

Component Spot Testing - In this service, we will come to the home and test single or multiple components for the presence of lead based paint. This is especially useful for contractors or home owners doing minor remodeling in pre-1978 houses. Due to new laws, any work disturbing painted/coated surfaces on pre-1978 houses done by contractors or landlords, must follow Lead Safe Work Practices (LSWP). LSWP involves sealing off the work area, ensuring no dust escapes the area, then a complete cleanup, with a expensive HEPA vacuum, must be accomplished. If we come in beforehand and determine there is no lead based paint, then LSWP can be avoided and results in a large savings of time and money. A large percentage of houses built since 1960 would pass the spot test, due to the paint manufacturer's were already phasing out lead additives starting in the 60's.

Lead Based Paint Inspection - For this service we will conduct a surface-by-surface investigation determining whether lead-based paint is present in a house or dwelling units, including common areas and exterior surfaces. A full detailed written report will be provided describing all aspects of the inspection including, if present, which building components contain lead-based paint. This test is good to alleviate your concerns by informing you where, if any, lead based painted components are located. A lot of houses built after 1960 may not have any lead based paint in them and having it certified would also be a great asset to have if you are attempting to sale your home. We will also have water samples checked for lead content if the client chooses to.

Lead Risk Assessment- we will provide an onsite investigation to determine the existence, nature, severity, and location of lead-based paint hazards in a residential dwelling or child-occupied facility and provide a full detail written report explaining the results of the investigation and options for reducing any lead-based paint hazards. During this test we check damaged/deteriorated paint for the presence of lead paint. We also take inside dust samples and outside soil samples which are sent to a certified laboratory to check for the presence of lead. We will also have water samples checked for lead content if the client chooses to.

Lead Based Paint Inspection/Risk Assessment combo - Sometimes the most proactive choice is to do the full barrage of tests. This option will include all aspects of the Lead Based Paint Inspection and the Lead Risk Assessment. This would be cheaper than purchasing the tests separately due to the combining of certain expenses.

Lead in water testing- For this service we will pull water samples and have them analyzed for their lead content.

Lead Based Paint Abatement Clearance - With this service, we come into a residential home after a licensed Lead Paint Abatement contractor has finished their scope of work. We verify that all parts of the scope of work are completed. We also take dust and soil samples to ensure that the residence has been cleaned and free of lead hazards.
