Lead-based paint can be a serious issue, whether it is present in a home or industry. Lead-based paint is the source of lead poisoning, which can lead to severe health problems and death. USEPA, HUD and OSHA have established extensive requirements concerning the prevention of lead poisoning to workers and building tenants. Our lead paint inspection detects lead and keeps homes and work spaces safe.

MEI has been performing lead abatement services since 1984. We have successfully completed hundreds of lead abatement projects from residential homes to 300,000 sq. ft. military aircraft hangars. Our customers range from individual homeowners, schools and hospitals to federal and state government institutions as well as Fortune 500 companies.

MEI owns and operates the most up-to-date lead-based paint abatement equipment including two recyclable steel shot blasting systems and HEPA filtered air filtration systems rated up to 24,000 cubic feet per minute.
