The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting, or Lead RRP, rule was created to safeguard children and pregnant women from exposure to lead-based paint, which can lead to birth defects, learning disabilities and slowed growth. Contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child-care facilities, and schools built before 1978 are required to be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. To follow the RRP rule, remodelers first must have their company and someone on staff certified in lead-safe work practices.
At Wall To Wall Construction, LLC…both the firm and its entire staff have been certified and trained. According to owner Greg Wall “We take this process very seriously and have a process in place to ensure the safety of our staff, subs and clients. Surprisingly it s not very difficult to follow the lead safe priactices but you need to be properly trained and diligent about the process.”
