Lead Renovation

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LEAD

Common renovation, repair, and painting activities that disturb lead-based paint (like sanding, cutting, replacing windows, and more) can create hazardous lead dust and chips which can be harmful to adults and children. But with careful work practices and thorough clean-up, renovations can be done safely. EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) lowers the risk of lead contamination from home renovation activities. It requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 be certified by EPA and use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT NEW LEAD RENOVATION RULES

Under new state and federal guidelines effective April 22, 2010, a contractor working on houses built before 1978 is required to be certified as a Lead-Safe Company. Each project is required to have one crew leader on site who has completed training and received certification. We are current on all lead renovation training and certifications.
