A new rule by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates that all renovation and repair contractors working in pre-1978 homes, schools, and day care centers who disrupt more than six square feet of lead paint are required to become EPA Certified in lead-safe work practices. Contractors are required to take a one-day training course and firms must send a short application to the EPA. If not, they could face tens of thousands of dollars in fines in the future.
The Good news is that Alford Home Solutions is a Lead-Safe Certified business, and we also have three Certified Lead Renovators on staff: Chris Alford, Mark Ferrell, and Dennis Newton. Protect your family when considering rennovations. Lead paint hazards have not gone away. If your home or apartment was built before 1978, unqualified workers could spread lead paint dust. Even doing a small job. Be safe and hire the professionals the first time!
