Healthy Home: Check for Lead in Plastic Toys & Painted Wood
The XRF analyzer provides lead testing solutions for household painted wood or plastic items as well as toys marketed toward teenagers such as fidget spinners. The 14+ age group avoids the more stringent toy regulations for toys targeted at children under 12, who are more likely to put toys in their mouth.
How does an XRF work? In XRF sample analysis, a sample is excited by high–energy photons and the sample lead content is determined nondestructively and rapidly.
Please contact us to schedule a home lead inspection by a professional lead inspector or let us know if you would like to be notified of our next meet-up in the San Francisco Bay Area for testing toys and other household products for lead.
Note that our XRF technology is used for screening purpose only and will not satisfy the requirement to have third party accredited testing under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.
We are experts at finding clues to building-related illness through our professional home inspection services. Using experience and high-tech testing gadgets, we give a thorough inspection along with expert recommendations in an easy to use format.
