LEAD SAFE PRACTICES
Starting on April 22, 2010, the EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices:
The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting rule states that every contractor performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in residences and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
Exterior Specialists DFW is proud of the fact that we are a certified lead renovator firm. This means we are certified under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) strict guidelines regarding material safety standards, and that our staff has completed lead safety training and awareness.
As a homeowner you want to know that proper lead safety precautions are taken. This is vitally important to your family during home renovation projects. Individuals and companies must comply with RR&P certification or face the posibility of fines or lawsuits for civil responsibility. In States where the certification is controlled by the EPA itself, not the state, the fines could be up to $37,500 per infraction/per day. Your safety and well being are an absolute top priority for us. We will make sure all steps are taken to educate you as a homeowner, and that all safety measures and precautions are used during your home improvement project.
