Lead-safe Painting

Lead Paint Safety Painting

 

Lead Safe PaintingIn 2010 the Environmental Protection Agency , implemented regulations aimed at preventing lead poisoning when work is done on houses built prior to 1978. When older layers of lead based paint are disturbed, the chips and dust created are harmful when inhaled or ingested. The EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting rules (RRP rules) apply in instances where six square feet of interior lead based paint or 20 square feet of exterior lead based paint are disturbed. RRP rules establish licensing, record keeping and work-safe practices for building contractors, electricians, plumbers and painters and require these contractors to provide information and a consent form to home owners before beginning work
