Was Your Home Built Before 1978?
According to the EPA, most buildings built prior to 1978 will likely contain lead-based paint, a heavy mercury-like substance that is a health hazard to humans. Fortunately, now that the dangers of latent lead-based paint have become public knowledge, the EPA is actively involved in creating stringent regulations that govern the renovation of older homes containing this substance.
If your home was built before 1978, it is vital to ensure that the contractor you are working with is EPA RRP Certified. When you work with John Gregoras Painters, you know your lead-based paint project will be handled in a safe manner that complies with regulation from the EPA.
