Testing for Lead in Soil

Lead in soil is a common problem that can result in chronic health problems. The presence of lead in soil occurs naturally, or arrives via contaminated air, water, deteriorated lead-based paint, or from construction/renovation. Unless the contamination is clearly visible, such as paint chips, a lead soil test will be necessary to determine the soil’s safety. AAA Lead Consultants is the number one choice in Southern California if you need soil testing for lead. Let our dedicated soil examination experts provide you with the utmost in soil analysis.

Young children are at the greatest risk for lead poisoning because they play and crawl inside and outside buildings and come into contact with soil and dust that may contain lead. Lead may be in the soil where children play, especially near busy roadways or factories. The lead from gasoline, used for many years has settled onto soil and is difficult to remove. This soil may also be tracked inside on shoes and clothing. Lead-contaminated dust from paint or soil clings to windowsills, floors, doorways and children’s toys, and is dangerous to young children who crawl and often put their hands and other objects in their mouths.

Because the concentration of lead deposits present in the soil in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and San Diego County is higher than many other parts of California, AAA Lead Consultants would encourage you to conduct a soil analysis on your property. Help protect your children and pets from the hazards of lead poisoning by enlisting the help of AAA Lead Consultants’ experienced professionals.
