A new federal regulation that took effect in April requires all contractors who perform renovations on buildings constructed before 1978 to become trained and EPA certified in properly handling lead paint. ProTect Painters franchise owners are some of the first professional providers to become certified.
According to the EPA, even a small amount of lead paint dust creates a hazardous condition, such as one-millionth of a gram in a square foot area. Lead paint is especially dangerous for children and pregnant women.
If your home was built prior to 1978, we encourage you to make certain that painters who work on your home are EPA certified.
Uncontained lead paint dust can cause permanent brain and nervous system damage, reduced intelligence, reading or leaning difficulties, hyperactivity, high blood pressure and fatigue, according to the EPA. That's why ProTect Painters is so serious about becoming trained and certified.
