EPA Lead Laws
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that renovations and repairs of pre-1978 buildings must now be conducted using safe practices to protect families and workers from exposure to lead-based paint. EPA proposed the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule, which requires contractors to be trained and certified in lead-safe work practices, in 2006. In 2008, EPA finalized the rule and set April 22, 2010 as the implementation date. This law pertains to renovations exceeding more than 6 square feet of interior surface where lead is present and more than 20 square feet on exteriors, where lead paint will be disturbed through repairs, renovations, and painting. Kellogg's Painting Company is a Lead Safe Certified Firm #NAT-25019-1 and a Certified Renovator. Learn more
