Certifications & Licensing


Visual Inspection

Both the EPA & HUD require a visual inspection as a first step in the clearance process of lead paint abatement. A visual inspection is performed by a licensed NYSL inspector & is designed to determine if the area is free of visible dust & debris before lead dust testing can begin.

Property Managers

Did you know that property managers are required to inspect all their units every two years to ensure that no lead hazards are present in the properties they rent? Contact NYSL to make sure you are abiding by all Federal, State & City lead paint regulation. 

Do you own or operate a childcare facility?

Every childcare facility must be lead free, according to Federal, State & City laws. Call NYSL to have your inspection & remediation done.

Thinking of buying a new home?

Buying a home is an integral part of the American Dream. But that dream can become a nightmare if dangerous levels of lead are found on the walls of your home, or in your soil or water. Save money, aggravation, & potential health risks by calling NYSL before you think about buying a new home.

Leasing an apartment?

Having it tested. Have a NYSL inspector visit your property & show you how to live lead hazard free. 


Is there anything more important than your family? Let a trained NYSL risk assessor come to your residence & provide you with a thorough analysis of any & all lead hazards. If needed, we can provide you with a remediation plan to ensure that your home is lead hazard free.

Dust Wipes

A trained NYSL representative will take a Dust Wipe sample to test for lead on your site. Sample are collected from floors, interior window sills, & similar surfaces.

Remodeing /Renovations

If you are planning any remodeling or renovations on a property built before 197, even if you are doing work yourself, you should contact a NYSL specialist to ensure your home is not being exposed to lead hazards during the project.

Clearance Samples

The purpose of lead dust clearance is to determine if an area is safe for re-occupation. An EPA certified NYSL agent will take Clearance samples after renovation, repair, painting, cleanup activities are completed, or after a lead paint violation has been corrected in any property built before 1978.
