Distinctive Design & Remodeling, New EPA Guildlines on April 22, 2010 for Homes Built Before 1978


Effective April 22, 2010 the EPA will issue new rules regarding lead paint in your Northern VA home built before 1978.

Alexandria, VA, March 18, 2010 --(PR.com)-- To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning in April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

Until that time, EPA recommends that anyone performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools follow lead-safe work practices.

All contractors should follow these three simple procedures:

Contain the work area.
Minimize dust.
Clean up thoroughly

The rule will affect paid renovators who work in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, including:

Renovation contractors
Maintenance workers in multi-family housing
Painters and other specialty trades.

Distinctive Design & Remodeling, Inc. has already begun their EPA Certification process and will be fully certified by April 22, 2010.
