Lead paint testing inside the City of San Diego:  Both EPA and City of San Diego have
requirements if your project impacts paint with lead concentrations greater than 1.0 mg/cm
(lead-based paint).  However, some of the City of San Diego requirements also apply if the paint has
lead concentrations greater than 0.5 mg/cm2.  San Diego Testing considers both thresholds when
analyzing and our concise reports detail which requirements apply to each tested surface.  We use the
most advanced XRF equipment and provide immedi
ate results.

Ordinance requires clearance testing upon completion of projects that disturb lead-based paint in all
structures located within the City. A clearance inspection involves a visual inspection and collection of
dust wipe samples and possibly soil samples, which have to be sent to a laboratory for analysis.

impacts paint with lead concentrations greater than 1.0 mg/cm
