EPA Lead Safe Certified
How is being an EPA Lead Safe Certified Firm significant?
If your home was built before 1978, there is a good chance it has lead-based paint. In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead-containing paint, but some states banned it even earlier. Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning.
Lead paint is still present in millions of homes, sometimes under layers of newer paint. If the paint is in good shape, the lead paint is usually not a problem. Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp) is a hazard and needs immediate attention.
It may also be a hazard when found on surfaces that children can chew or that get a lot of wear-and-tear, such as windows and window sills, doors and door frames, stairs, railing, banisters, and porches.
Because lead can be found close to anywhere in an older home, federal law requires all renovation, repair, and painting firms working in housing, or facilities where children are routinely present, built before 1978, to be certified.
