With over 20 years of experience, Exit Mold uses advanced XRF Lead Testing techniques to detect Lead Paint in a non-invasive method efficiently.
Lead paint can be harmful to humans if ingested or inhaled, which is why it is important to accurately identify and address its presence in homes and other buildings. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) lead paint testing is a reliable and non-invasive method of determining the presence and concentration of lead in paint layers on surfaces.
At Exit Mold, we use state-of-the-art XRF analyzers to perform accurate and efficient lead paint testing. Our team of trained professionals can quickly determine the presence and concentration of lead in paint layers, helping to ensure the safety and health of individuals. Contact us today to schedule XRF lead paint testing for your home or business.

XRF lead testing is a non-invasive method of determining the presence and concentration of lead in paint layers on surfaces using X-ray fluorescence technology. It is accurate, efficient, and safe, making it a valuable tool for ensuring the health and safety of individuals in homes and buildings.
There are several benefits to using XRF lead paint testing.
XRF lead paint testing can be performed on most surfaces, including walls, ceilings, doors, windows, and other areas with painted surfaces. However, it may not be effective on certain materials, such as metal or heavily textured surfaces.
If ingested or inhaled, lead paint can be harmful to humans, especially children, and pregnant women. It is crucial to identify and properly address the presence of lead paint to protect the health and safety of individuals.
During XRF testing, a portable XRF analyzer is used to emit low-energy X-rays that penetrate the paint’s surface. The X-rays cause the atoms in the paint to emit secondary X-rays, which are then measured by the analyzer to determine the presence and concentration of lead.
XRF testing is relatively quick, with most tests taking less than an hour to complete. The exact duration of the test may vary depending on the surface’s size and complexity.
If lead paint is found during XRF testing, it is important to follow appropriate safety protocols for handling and removing the paint. This may involve hiring a professional lead paint removal company or following guidelines provided by local health or environmental agencies.
XRF lead paint testing is generally safe for those performing the test and those in the surrounding area. The X-ray emissions from the analyzer are low energy and do not produce harmful radiation.
XRF lead paint testing is considered highly accurate and is often used as a reference method for determining lead levels in paint. The results of an XRF test can typically detect lead at levels as low as 0.5% by weight.
