Lead Paint Inspectors are in high demand as cities revitalize
July 12, 2023
The revitalization of urban areas and government initiatives have started a resurgence of lead paint testing. With that resurgence, the need for safe and effective lead paint analyzers has increased as well as the need for lead paint inspectors.
These grants are developing new business opportunities. Tim Johnson, Business Development for Restricted Substances and Regulatory Markets at SciAps, has seen firsthand how the need for SciAps X-550 Pb analyzers has increased over the year, but has also witnessed the uprise of independent lead paint contractors. Once they are certified, inspectors are buying their own analyzers and starting their own businesses. Individual jobs can be done in 2-3hours, with an average payment of $500/job. At that rate, independent contractors can get certified, buy and pay off their own SciAps lead paint analyzer, and be making a hefty profit by the end of the month, all while working part time.
If you’re interested in finding out more, SciAps will be at a number of lead paint conferences this year. Check out our Events Page for conferences near you. If you can’t make it to a conference, contact us for a demo. We’ll be happy to answer your questions.
