Lead Testing in West Virginia

Welcome to Fox Mountain Property Inspections, your trusted partner in ensuring the safety and compliance of your property. Lead in homes and other buildings poses significant health risks, particularly in older homes where lead-based paint and leaded plumbing fixtures were more commonly used. When lead paint deteriorates, it creates dust and chips that can be ingested or inhaled, especially by young children. This can result in serious health issues including developmental delays, learning difficulties, irritability, weight loss, and hearing problems. In adults, lead exposure can cause high blood pressure, joint and muscle pain, difficulties with memory or concentration, and reproductive problems. Additionally, lead pipes can leach lead into drinking water, further increasing the risk of exposure.

How We Perform Lead Testing in West Virginia 

  • XRF Lead-Testing Device: We utilize sophisticated XRF (X-ray fluorescence) to quickly and precisely detect lead levels in all layers of paint. This non-destructive testing method is efficient, providing you with reliable results without causing any harm to your property. 

  • Lead Dust Wipes: Lead dust wipe testing is a method used to assess lead contamination on surfaces, particularly in older homes or buildings with a history of lead paint use. The process involves selecting test sites such as floors, windowsills, and door frames, and then preparing them for sampling. A special moistened wipe cloth is used to collect dust from these surfaces in a standardized manner, ensuring a consistent area is covered, typically a square foot. The collected samples are then sealed, labeled, and sent for laboratory analysis.

    The laboratory analyzes the samples to determine if lead is present. This testing is crucial for identifying lead exposure risks, particularly for children, and aids in guiding necessary cleanup and prevention measures. 

  • Lead Water Testing: Lead content in water can lead to negative health effects, particularly on children and pregnant women. The testing involves collecting water samples in the property, using specialized containers to prevent contamination. The samples may require specific preservatives or storage methods to maintain the integrity of the lead levels until testing.

    The laboratory analyzes the samples to determine levels of lead contamination. Results are compared against regulatory standards, like those set by the EPA, to determine safety levels. If lead concentrations exceed safe limits, actions such as replacing lead pipes or using filters are necessary to mitigate the risks and ensure water safety. Regular testing is especially important in older buildings with potential lead plumbing, maintaining safe drinking water standards. 

Why Lead Testing West Virginia Services Are Important

Renovation Support: If you’re planning renovations, lead paint testing is essential. During demolition, lead in paint and other building materials can become airborne and easily inhaled. Identifying lead-based paint before starting any renovations ensures that proper precautions are taken to protect the health of both workers and occupants. Our testing services can guide you in creating a safe and efficient renovation plan.  

Personal Safety: Testing is a proactive step towards ensuring the well-being of everyone residing in or around your property. Identifying and addressing lead hazards promptly contributes to a healthier living environment and peace-of-mind.

Roy Delgado—the inspector assigned to my future home—was very considerate in explaining the important points of his inspection. In great detail he described what the house needs to change and the positive findings of the house. His report helped me determine if I wanted to continue the purchase process. It especially helped that he considered speaking in Spanish when I didn't understand the English terms of inspection very well.

Keith performed my first inspection. He was courteous, professional and patient with my questions. And best of all, he uncovered a serious issue, saving me a major headache and potentially 10's of thousands in repairs. Keith was a wealth of knowledge and took his time to do a thorough inspection. I can't say enough great things about him.My second inspection went better and was performed by the owner, Richard and he was every bit as thorough, professional and patient.Thank you Keith and Richard. I'll be using your company going forward and recommending you to friends and family.

I just had my first home inspection ever with Keith at Fox Mountain Property Inspections. The overall inspection took about 3 hours and it was obvious that he was carefully evaluating every part of the home. I absolutely appreciated his thoroughness and ability to explain the more complicated parts of the inspection. As a first time homebuyer without any inspection experience, Keith (and his report which was done within an hour of leaving the property) made it easy to understand what parts of the house need our attention. Thank you Keith and Fox Mountain Property Inspections!

Keith and Seth were fantastic during the inspection of our 100+ year old house. They were warm and friendly while being informative and thorough. We weren’t able to stay the entire time and Keith followed up with me afterwards to give a status update on the rest of the inspection. The report produced was complete and the pictures were great, and even the process to schedule and pay was seamless. I’ve had several home inspections done and Fox Mountain were some of the best!

Fox Mountain Property Inspections took care of everything, walked me through the process and made me feel at ease.Our Inspector Keith was amazing, and I truly can't say enough good things about him. Very Knowledgeable, thorough and just a nice person! From getting on top of the roof to check for damages all the way down to testing for moisture in the basement. This is the person you want inspecting your future home!Unfortunately, the house didn't work out, but rest assure I will be calling Fox Mountain back when I am in need of another home inspection.

I had the great pleasure of working with Keith for my July home inspection and I couldn’t be more pleased with his exceptional service. From start to finish, he demonstrated a high level of professionalism and expertise.He arrived punctually and thoroughly examined every aspect of the property. His attention to detail was truly impressive, and he took great care and time to answer my (many) questions about the house. He was super thorough in explaining all of his findings. It was evident that he had a deep knowledge of home construction and maintenance.What sets Keith apart is not only his technical competence but also his dedication to ensuring I understood the condition of the property. He provided valuable insights and recommendations, which gave me confidence in my home purchase decision. I can’t thank him enough for his outstanding work and would undoubtedly seek his services again in the future.

The operations manager and owner made personal efforts to ensure we could have the inspection in time to make an informed offer. Richard was knowledgeable and pleasant. It’s nice to see someone who is not only great at their job, but seems to truly enjoy it. Dan (operations) said we’d like him, and he was right!I want to add that this is our second time using the professionals at Fox for an inspection in this challenging home buying market. Both times we left feeling confident we got the information we needed (and more) in order to make an informed decision. They are great- call them!

He encouraged me to be educated in the home we were in the process of purchasing, even pointing out areas we'd need to know about for later (water shut offs, etc.). I can't day enough about his friendly and professional demeanor. Thank you, Keith! You rock!

We bought our first home and called Fox Mountain Property Inspections to inspect the house. They fit us into their schedule within 4 days of calling and were early to the appointment. Incredibly knowledgeable and very thorough inspection. Richard even took the time to explain the inner workings of all the mechanical so we knew what to expect. It was a fantastic experience and you should absolutely call them for all your home inspection needs.
