When hiring a painter for your Catskills or Hudson Valley NY home or business safety should come to mind. Ask the painting contractor about safety. Does the painting company have a safety program? Does the painting contractor perform safety meetings with there employees? Does the painter utilize a safety manual?
Most construction work related injuries and deaths occur from falls. Falls from ladders and scaffolding.
Kellogg's Painting Company of Leeds, NY 12451 employees are trained on how to safely use each piece of equipment that is used during the operations of painting the interior-exterior of your Catskills and Hudson Valley NY home. Our painting company has a safety program in place.

Another safety concern that is sometimes overlooked is lead paint. Older homes in the Catskills and Hudson Valley NY areas have lead paint under numerous layers of latex paint. Lead paint is not only a concern for a painting contractors employees, but it is also a concern for the family whom resides in the home that is being painted. Any painting contractor that is going to be painting six square feet or more of painted surfaces in a room for interior projects, or more than twenty square feet of painted surfaces for exterior projects where lead paint is present must be a EPA Lead Certified Firm with EPA Lead Certified Renovators and follow lead safe working practices.
