Lead inspection services are available to owners of St. Louis properties in order to find lead-based paint, lead-based paint hazards, or other sources of lead that can cause poisoning. A lead inspection is an analysis of all coated surfaces which determines the presence of lead paint and also provides a report explaining the results of the analysis.
These services include: Inspection, Risk Assessment, and EBL investigation, meaning if a child under age 6 is lead poisoned, this evaluation is done to try to determine where the lead is coming from.
All lead inspections performed on residential City properties are done free of charge and can be arranged by calling the Lead Safe St. Louis hotline number at 314-259-3455.
While the cost of fixing lead based paint hazards can be expensive, the City of St. Louis has funds to help owners of city properties overcome the financial burden of remediation. Once a property’s lead hazards have been identified and either the property owner or the renter of the property has completed an intake process, assistance may be awarded based upon one of the following criteria: Income, whether or not children under 6 years of age live in the home or, if the property is occupied by its owner.

There are also services for multi-family lead remediation, window replacement, HEPA vacuum loans, and blood lead level testing for children.
