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.

Common Questions About EPA Lead Certified Services

What does EPA Lead certified mean?

An EPA lead certification means that the certified firm has at least one EPA lead certified renovator on staff. A person becomes certified by
completing an EPA-accredited training course. Refresher courses are required every five years to maintain certification. For more information see the epa.gov website.

Do I need a lead certified painter?

If your home was built before 1978, or if lead paint has been detected on your home, you should hire an EPA Lead certified painter.

How do I identify lead paint?

Most hardware stores offer paint testing kits that detect if there is lead present on painted surfaces. Home test kits however can only test if there is lead on the surface. Some home inspectors can run more advanced tests to verify.

What are the dangers of lead based paint?

Lead paint can be dangerous if it is beginning to break down with cracks and peeling, or if it is sanded. Lead is a toxic metal that can lead to a variety of health problems if inhaled or ingested.
