Test First to Know if You Need a Certified Contractor

It’s much cheaper to test for lead paint first, than to assume it’s safe and risk having to re-do the work.

For contractors who aren’t certified, lead pre-screening could save $1000 per job. To put it another way, if you start a job, discover lead, it could add hundreds of dollars to a job and be a hassle to get certified or find someone else to do the work. Instead, hire LeadSafe for as low as $95!

EPA Requirements

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children.

To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

EPA requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.
