CertaPro Painters® of Colorado Springs | EPA RRP Lead Certified Services
If your home was built before 1978 it is vital to ensure that the contractor you are working with is EPA RRP Certified. When you work with CertaPro Painters® of Colorado Springs you know your lead-based paint project will be handled in a safe manner that complies with regulation from the EPA.
In April 2008 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a mandate that has had a significant impact on the remodeling and home improvement industry. The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) has changed how painting and other renovation contractors approach working on buildings built before 1978, as well as all schools, non-profit buildings, government buildings and hospitals.
Signs of Lead Paint On Your Property
If your home was built before 1978, you should keep an eye out for these three common warning signs of lead paint.
If you have noticed this textured pattern on your home exterior, then you may have identified a common sign of lead painted surfaces.
Chipped Peeling Paint
Peeling, chipping, bubbles, and cracks are very common on aged lead paint
Excessive Paint Failure
If you notice large areas of failing paint, even after a recent paint job, you may be dealing with lead paint deteriorating the surface. Call CertaPro to verify any problems you've found.
Was Your Home Built Before 1978?
According to the EPA, most buildings built prior to 1978 will likely contain lead-based paint, a heavy mercury-like substance that is a health hazard to humans. Fortunately, now that the dangers of latent lead-based paint have become public knowledge, the EPA is actively involved in creating stringent regulations that govern the renovation of older homes containing this substance.
While lead-safe work practices require an EPA lead-safe contractor, additional labor, and materials, certified contractors will ensure that lead-based paint debris is removed and handled in a way that is safe to your home and family, as well as themselves. Always ask any contractor for their EPA Lead RRP certification number.
