If you are a contractor or owner of the house or any property, you might have surely heard about the lead safety rule that is issued over many places. Under this rule, it is has been indicated that no work place should make use of lead paint anymore in renovation or maintenance work and if any house is built before 1978 then it has to undergo renovation work so as to make the property lead free and follow the lead safety procedure.
Why lead safety is important?
Lead is considered as a very hazardous material. If it is consumed then it can cause many health problems such as breathing problem, reproductive problem and many more. Lead paint is widely found in the old windows as well as in doors so when this has to be removed or need to be paint again then you must hire a contractor that has undergone lead safety course.
How to choose a contractor?
If your place has lead and you are looking for renovation and repairing work then you need to secure the place prior to work. Keep this in mind that always choose a company that is EPA certified. Professional companies always do the RRP i.e. renovation, repair and painting work with proper care. They make use of heavy plastic sheets, stapler, put warning signs of lead poison and more. Overall, they make sure that everyone keeps away from the property during RRP work. In order to reduce the amount of dust produced during RRP work, these companies perform daily cleaning of property. These companies also make use of chemicals to remove the paint from windows and doors but they use chemicals that don’t contain methylene chloride so that no dust is produced. They also place all debris in trash bag so that it doesn’t create mess or lead present in debris doesn’t get mixed with air.
