Lead Certified Firm
A renovation in your home can stir up and create dangerous levels of lead dust and chips which can be harmful to adults and children. The EPA now requires that any firm performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint, in homes built prior to 1978, be certified by the EPA and use trained certified renovators. When choosing a contractor, it is important to ask if their company is a "Lead-Safe Certified Firm" and make sure they follow the EPA protocol. Menold Construction & Restoration has obtained the proper certification from the EPA. All of our project managers have been through an eight hour EPA accredited training course. In general, the EPA is asking firms to follow three simple procedures: Contain the work area, minimize dust and clean up thoroughly. There are many details to these requirements including some strict rules and exceptions. If you have any questions in regards to keeping your home "lead safe", don't hesitate to ask us.
