Who can I get to test my soil for lead?

Philadelphia’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevent Program provides a list of EPA-certified lead-dust-sampling technicians who can test surfaces inside and outside your home for contamination.  This list also includes Penn.-licensed lead inspectors and risk assessors who can test your soil for lead.

Inclusion in the list doesn’t constitute an endorsement or recommendation of that provider, the city notes. You should ask for the credentials of the technicians and, if appropriate, obtain references. The city’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program can be reached at: 215.685.2788.
