The State of Michigan as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency along with OSHA requires a lead clearance after all Lead Hazard Control (Interim & Abatement) activities have concluded. This ensures that individuals occupying the facility or residence do not come in contact or get exposed to toxic components such as lead dust, or soil that's contaminated with lead or disturbing other substrate materials that contain lead based paint. The Clearance is comprised of 3 steps: first PCI will review the scope of work and investigate to verify all work was performed as specified by a qualified RRP Certified or other Lead Inspector / Supervisor, Second step will determine the work-site area and verify containment followed by dust wipe sample gathering in appropriate areas. And Third, PCI will review the dust wipe sample results from our laboratory and analyze the data to ensure that the subject property passes based on EPA regulated thresholds.

5 things every parent needs to know about lead poisoning
Lead exposure is of particular concern for children under 6 and pregnant women. That's because lead is a neurotoxin that disrupts brain function, and so much brain development occurs in utero and during the first five years of life.
What causes lead poisoning? What are some possible sources of exposure?
Children can be exposed to lead in many ways. Kids can take in lead by mouth or through breathing lead dust. They can get dust and paint chips on their hands and then put their hands in their mouths.
Exposure to even low levels of lead can cause damage over time, especially in children. The greatest risk is to brain development, where irreversible damage can occur. Higher levels can damage the kidneys and nervous system in both children and adults. Very high lead levels may cause seizures, unconsciousness and death.
