Lead Assessment and Remediation

Once you have determined that you are ready to take action, the next step is to hire a certified lead professional to perform a lead inspection and risk assessment on your home.

To start, you can take our 10-minute self-assessment to get recommendations for next steps.

You can also connect with the City of Grand Rapids and Kent County Health Department for guidance, and to see if you’re eligible for help.

The City of Grand Rapids’ Get the Lead Out program assists homeowners and landlords with the expertise and expense needed to make a home lead-safe. You can learn more at the
Get the Lead Out website.

To date, Get the Lead Out has made more than 1,600 homes in the Grand Rapids area
lead-safe!

If you are not eligible for these programs, you can still hire a certified lead professional. For more information on the process of hiring a lead professional near you, check out the comprehensive list on the State of Michigan’s Mi Lead Safe website in the resources below.
