The Lead Safe Columbus Program works to identify lead based paint hazards in homes built before 1978 within the City of Columbus prioritizing families with children under the age of six (6) years old living in the home. In order to identify and abatement those lead based paint hazards we need to work with licensed risk assessors. The licensed risk assessors complete a full lead based paint risk assessment using a specialized XRF gun to determine where lead based paint hazards are and if they are in a condition to need repair. The licensed risk assessors are responsible for creating the work specifications that determine which lead based paint hazards should be addressed and what abatement method to use. Once the work is completed by a licensed lead abatement contractor the licensed risk assessors’ returns to the property to complete a dust wipe sampling to ensure that all hazards have been properly abated and cleaned. Once the samples are collected and sent for testing and determined to be cleared the licensed risk assessor will give a clearance followed by a clearance report that is provided to the homeowners and investor stating all the hazards were abated and cleared during the time of the clearance testing and methods on how to maintain the abatement methods.

This modification will extend the term of the contract to continue to provide assessment and clearance services as authorized per the Lead Hazard Reduction Grant through December 31, 2024.
