Lead paint was used prior to 1978.  Many products including paint can contain lead.  If the paint contains greater than 0.06% lead, it is considered a lead based paint product.  The health hazards associated with lead have been known for a long time.  It is now understood that the recognition and management of lead containing materials requires knowledgeable and experienced engineering and health professionals.  Personnel certified by the EPA as building inspectors, risk assessors and in-place management planners are available to provide engineering surveys, inspections, management plans, designs and training.  EEC provides lead-related services to public and private schools, day care centers and public building owners.  We will work closely with architects and engineers to form a total project team.

All of our samples are analyzed by an AIHA ELPAT approved laboratory as required by EPA.  Where lead abatement is recommended, detailed plans and specifications for the lead abatement projects are developed as per HUD, OSHA, EPA and State of North Carolina guidelines and regulations.  EEC staff will set up prebid conferences for the selection of the lead abatement contractor and conduct an on-site orientation to fully acquaint the potential contractors with the project.  Appropriate submittals are reviewed for compliance with the specifications and plans.  EEC provides on-site monitoring of the project and collects outside area samples to ensure that lead contamination is contained.  A thorough final visual inspection ensures that all lead based paint materials have been successfully addressed.  Final air samples and wipe samples are collected to verify that the lead abatement contractor has met the levels for clearance specified in the plans and specifications. EEC looks forward to working with the engineer/designer and the lead abatement contractor to ensure the quality and success of the project.

Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that has no odor, see or taste.  When breath of the air-containing radon is taken, chance of developing lung cancer is increased, Increase of the risk of developing lung cancer.  In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.  If you smoke and your business or home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.


The USEPA offers some maps of areas in the US with rough estimates on the concentration of radon likely to be experienced.  However, testing is the only way to positively quantify radon in the business or home.  The USEPA, Surgeon General, American Lung Association, American Medical Association and National Safety Council all recommend testing for radon.


EEC will sample the building, provide the analytical results, interpret the results and if necessary, make recommendations for reducing the radon levels.  We will also provide a cost estimate for mitigation of radon levels.
