XRF Lead Testing in NYC

XRF Lead Testing NYC

How does XRF testing work?

XRF instruments measure the amount of lead on a painted surface by exposing the surface to high-energy radiation (gamma rays in this case). 

  • There is no damage to the painted surface during the test.

    The XRF process doesn’t require a physical sample to be taken. Since lead-based paint can produce harmful lead dust when it is damaged, testing paint without taking chips is preferable. There is no damage and no danger.

  • This method tests materials by hitting them with X-rays and recording the resulting fluorescent X-rays that are emitted.

    Each element releases a unique signal and measuring this determines the concentration of the element being tested.

When is XRF testing required?

Effective August 9, 2020, Local Law 31 requires the owner of a residential dwelling in a building older than 1960 to have the dwelling(s) tested for lead. The testing must be performed by an EPA-certified inspector or risk assessor that is independent of the owner or any lead paint abatement firm.

EPA-certified lead paint inspectors use handheld XRF analyzer machines — which resemble radar guns — to accurately and efficiently test all types of surfaces within residential buildings for the presence of lead-based paint.
