Finding a Lead Contractor
If you are concerned about lead-based paint hazards in or around your home, you may want to hire a professional to determine your family’s risk or to remove the lead. During a home repair or renovation project, hiring a Lead Safe Certified Firm may help reduce the creation of lead hazards during the work. On this page you will find helpful resources if you are planning to hire a contractor.
Home Renovation & Repair Projects
If you are hiring a contractor for a renovation, repair or painting project, the contactor should follow lead safe work practices. All contractors that disturb painted surfaces in homes, daycares, and schools built before 1978 are required to be certified under the EPA's Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program. For more information, see Home Renovation and Remodeling.
