Comprehensive Lead-Based Paint Management for the Philadelphia Housing Authority 

 

The Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) currently houses approximately 80,000 people in the City of Philadelphia. Most of Philadelphia’s properties were built before 1978, when lead-based paint was routinely used.  Since 1978, a large majority of PHA’s properties have been renovated, but many pre-1978 properties remain. The PHA has contracted with Batta Environmental to conduct lead-based paint and lead hazard inspections, training, testing and monitoring activities within various PHA properties over the next five years.

 

Batta is providing large scale – comprehensive Lead-Based Paint Management Services inclusive of 1) Lead Paint Risk Assessments, 2) Lead Paint Inspections, 3) Dust Hazard Evaluations and 4) Renovation, Repair-Painting (RRP) Oversight for The Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA). Philadelphia’s Housing Authority is the fourth-largest Housing Agency in the nation – Caring for more than 80,000 residents located all over the City of Philadelphia. The Housing Authority is responsible for protecting its City tenants, property owners, and employees from lead poisoning under the HUD rule. Together Batta and PHA work together to limit Lead exposure by detecting and reducing the lead content in house dust, paint and soil.

 

Our large pool of certified and trained Lead Risk Assessors/Inspectors, Lead Dust Wipe Technicians and RRP personnel have more than 200 + years of relevant experience. The team works quickly and efficiently from our Philadelphia locations to be ultra-responsive; all Lead-based Paint Analysis is done through our in-house independent laboratory, BATTA Laboratories, who is accredited through the National Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program (NLLAP).

Roofing Remodeling Home Inspection Mold Removal Lead Paint Removal Ratings and Reviews for Integrity Lead-based Paint Services LLC A Review: Lead Paint Removal Service 10 months ago Test for lead I just had the best experience with Steve Veedell and want to recommend him strongly. I asked my husband to refinish our tub this weekend and completely didn't think about the fact that our home was built in 1945 and there may be lead in the tub. After he sanded the tub and painted it, I realized I couldn't bring the baby back home without knowing whether we had just kicked up some lead dust or not! Steve had quoted some remodeling services for me before and I remembered he had tested every area of the job thoroughly for lead due to the age of my home. I called him up this morning and he was over at my home within the hour to test the tub (which tested negative for lead, thank goodness)! He didn't charge me a dime for his services today. He is a great guy to work with so if you also have a home that is older, give him a call before doing any remodeling to check for lead, especially if you have littles in the home as I do! He does a lot of services including mold remediation, too. Services Performed Lead Paint Removal A Review: Home Inspection Service 11 months ago Environmental Home Testing Steve was very professional, very knowledgeable and gave us detailed information about our results. He explained things to us and took time to walk us through each area going over the values of the readings and how they would determine the progress of our repairs. He was very pleasant, positive attitude and friendly demeanor! Great service I highly recommended!!

LEAD-HAZARD RISK ASSESSMENTS

 

A Lead Risk Assessment (RA) is an on-site investigation to determine the presence, type, severity, and location of lead-based paint hazards (including lead hazards in paint, dust, and soil) and provides suggested ways to control them. For each identified paint, soil, or dust hazard, a recommended corrective action is provided. The two types of corrective actions are 1 – abatement which is a permanent long-term solution or 2 – interim control which is a shorter-term solution. Batta is providing RAs to hundreds of PHA properties per month.

Steve was thorough and very informative, both during the initial telephone inquiry/consultation and during the actual testing appointment. We did find several items that had unsafe levels of lead, including beer glasses from some local Houston-area breweries, and some of my parents' older dishes and mugs also tested high for lead. Lead testing services are not cheap, but for us it was worth it to have the peace of mind of knowing which items are safe to let our toddler play with and drink/eat from vs. which items should be thrown out or at least not used for young children.

Toys, kitchenware, glassware, furniture, etc. He was extremely helpful, informative, and nice -- I highly recommend him. He used an XRF gun to test the lead levels, and it takes a few seconds to test each item. He offered a discount because my friend and I both live in Sugar Land and both wanted to have him do lead checks in the same afternoon. Very professional service. Most of the stuff he tested was fine (whew!!), but I've attached a picture of some of the items Steve tested & what the readings were. 0.9 and under are technically OK, and 1.0+ is unsafe. The previous reviewer who was unhappy with his responsiveness -- that is surprising to me because he was very responsive to me via text/email/phone.

LEAD-BASED PAINT INSPECTIONS

 

BATTA completes LBP Inspections in response to PHA pre-construction or renovation needs.  Inspections are performed in units and common areas and generally follow construction and/or renovation scope of work. Inspections are also performed in response to Lead Hazard Controls or Lead Reduction for construction/renovation projects.  BATTA quickly dispatches Lead Dust Wipe Clearance Technicians throughout the City to visit Conventional and Scattered properties.  Dust wipe samples are secured from floors, window sills, and window troughs and are brought back to Batta Laboratories for immediate analysis.  Our Management provides lab data and interpretations to PHA in less than 12 hours.  This level of rapid response allows PHA to effectively manage tenant relocation’s.

When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs, like the kidneys, nerves and blood. [Photo: baby]Lead may also cause behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms of lead poisoning may include headaches, stomachaches, nausea, tiredness and irritability. Children who are lead poisoned may show no symptoms. Both inside and outside the home, deteriorated lead-paint mixes with household dust and soil and becomes tracked in. Children may become lead poisoned by: Putting their hands or other lead-contaminated objects into their mouths, Eating paint chips found in homes with peeling or flaking lead-based paint, or Playing in lead-contaminated soil Take a moment to look at the brochure "Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home" for additional information (available in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Somali and Arabic). What can you do? If your home was built before 1978: Wipe down flat surfaces, like window sills, with a damp paper towel and throw away the paper towel, Mop smooth floors (using a damp mop) weekly to control dust, Take off shoes when entering the house Vacuum carpets and upholstery to remove dust, If possible, use a vacuum with a HEPA filter or a "higher efficiency" collection bag, Pick up loose paint chips carefully with a paper towel and discard in the trash, then wipe the surface clean with a wet paper towel, Take precautions to avoid creating lead dust when remodeling, renovating or maintaining your home, Test for lead hazards by a lead professional. (Have the soil tested too). For your child: Have your child's blood lead level tested at age 1 and 2. Children from 3 to 6 years of age should have their blood tested, if they have not been tested before and: They live in or regularly visit a house built before 1950, They live in or regularly visit a house built before 1978 with on-going or recent renovations or remodeling They have a sibling or playmate who has or did have lead poisoning Frequently wash your child's hands and toys to reduce contact with dust, Use cold tap water for drinking and cooking Avoid using home remedies (such as arzacon, greta, pay-loo-ah, or litargirio) and cosmetics (such as kohl or alkohl) that contain lead Certain candies, such as tamarindo candy jam products from Mexico, may contain high levels of lead in the wrapper or stick. Be cautious when providing imported candies to children Some tableware, particularly folk terra cotta plates and bowls from Latin America, may contain high levels of lead that can leach into food.
