Home investigations are done by trained people who try to locate sources of lead in the home, buildings, or other structures. The state health department conducts investigations when a child has a confirmed blood lead level of >20 ug/dL. Otherwise, if you want your home tested, contact a lead inspector or lead risk assessor.
