RHP’s Lead Inspectors and Risk Assessors are licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and qualified to conduct Pre-Demolition Lead Assessment Surveys as required by the newly amended Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) Form DM (Demolition Notice of Intent) for demolition permit applications within the City of Chicago.
If lead is found to be present, RHP can assist with conducting the lead inspection and development of plans to “minimize lead emissions and offsite deposition” and “calculation of the amount of lead-deposition that may occur offsite” for purposes of completing CDPH Form DM.
Lead paint was used for decades in commercial buildings on walls, ceilings, railings and other surfaces. RHP scientists and professionals have conducted lead paint risk assessments using state of the art XRF lead detection instruments to locate and catalog the lead content of building and fixture surfaces. The resulting report provides the information building managers need to protect the health of building occupants and maintenance personnel.
