Why Is Certification Important?
Many of the activities that take place during renovation can disturb lead in your home; even minor renovations like sanding or window replacement could create an unhealthy environment. For this reason, the EPA states that any company or self-employed contractor offering renovation services that could create or disturb toxic lead dust in homes built before 1978—such as plumbers, painters, electricians, and carpenters—must become EPA Lead-Safe Certified.
