These directories provide lists of companies that offer lead abatement, lead-safe renovation, or lead-based paint investigation or clearance services in Wisconsin. To be included in a directory, a company must be state-certified and employ certified persons to conduct the services offered by the company. Other companies may also qualify to provide lead services, but have not requested to be listed in a public directory.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services does not endorse the companies on these lists, nor imply preference over companies not on a list. We advise consumers to request bids from multiple companies whenever possible, check certification status of the company and its employees or sub-contractors, conduct reference checks, and require a written contract for services before engaging any company.

How to Search the Directories
Companies are listed alphabetically by city. Many companies offer their services statewide or in a service area much larger than their home city. If you do not find a company listed for your city, check neighboring cities and suburbs, moving out from your location until you find a company.
Searching: To locate companies in a specific city or a company with a specific name:
Choose "Edit" on the Adobe Tool Bar.

The first "hit" on your search will be highlighted in the company list.
Use the arrow buttons in the search box to move to additional "hits" in the list.
Click the small "x" in the search box to end the search.
