On September 13, 2017, the Public Health Council voted to approve the final proposed changes to CLPPP regulations. CLPPP will spend the next two months training the lead related work force and communicating changes with key stakeholders including clinicians, federal, state and local partners, like DLS, HUD and MassHousing, as well as parents, property owners, and housing assistance programs. The implementation date for the new regulations is December 1, 2017.
Whether you're moving into a new home or seeking to properly maintain an old one, you must have a state-licensed lead inspection to determine if a hazard exists and to ensure that it is safely removed. Having a professional inspect your home or property can clue you into any potential risks, thus helping to eliminate them before they become serious hazards. Our certified inspectors at ASAP Environmental, Inc. will complete a comprehensive inspection to check for any signs of lead or mold.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) passed the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule in 2010 to safeguard homeowners and renters against the side effects of lead poisoning. All homes must be inspected for the presence of lead-based paint. Houses with lead must follow certain procedures during repairs or renovations.
Failure to comply with this rule carries serious consequences. Having your home inspected for lead-based paints allows you to avoid the fines. It can also prevent your loved ones from developing any of the harmful side effects of lead poisoning. During a lead inspection, our staff will check the surfaces of your home for the presence of lead and offer certified risk assessment.
Nearly all homes contain mold. Some molds are perfectly normal, but others are harmful to your family, with prolonged exposure causing serious health issues. Mold growth inside your home or in the walls can also decay the structure of your home, making it unsafe and possibly inhabitable. Regular mold inspections can help prevent this growth and exposure.
A mold inspection is a multi-step process. In addition to a visual inspection, our staff will perform air quality sampling and microscopic analysis. This will ensure that unseen mold does not go unnoticed. Our inspectors also perform moisture assessments to determine if the home has conditions conducive to mold growth. After the inspection, we provide a detailed analysis and consultation for any mold remediation.
