East Greenwich, RI, February 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- ANDY OnCall, an all-inclusive home handyman service serving Warwick, Rhode Island, is proud to announce the recent Lead-Safe Certification of additional members of their highly trained team of professional remodeling contractors. With the completion of this course from an EPA-approved provider, these ANDY OnCall technicians are now fully qualified to perform renovation, repairs, and painting work in homes built before 1978.
Common remodeling projects such as sanding, sawing, and demolition can stir up hazardous levels of lead dust and cause serious health implications for both kids and adults, but particularly for children under the age of six. By learning to follow lead-safe practices in their day-to-day home maintenance and handyman repair services, ANDY OnCall’s professional contractors are able to help homeowners throughout Warwick, East Greenwich, and Bristol limit their exposure to this highly toxic metal and safeguard all of their construction projects under the EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule of 2008.
As required by this federal law, ANDY OnCall’s lead-safe certified contractors are specially trained to adhere to strict safety guidelines when working on any home constructed prior to 1978, before lead-based paint was banned from residential use. This includes specific procedures for containing the work area, minimizing dust which can’t always be seen, and ensuring a thorough cleanup. The newly trained technicians are also prepared to present each client with copies of their EPA certificates, inform each client about the lead-safe practices that will be used in the course of their work, and provide client references upon request from other jobs involving lead-affected homes.
To learn more about the requirements for EPA-certified contractors, contact the National Lead Information Center (NLIC).
