Lead Paint Removal – EPA Certification
Knowing how to handle Denver House Painting projects that are found to contain lead-based paint (LBP) is a very serious matter and is regulated by state and national laws, guidelines and recommendations for homeowners. When done correctly, painting the exterior of your home that contains an existing layer of lead-based paint will help to cap or seal it and make exposure to adverse effects much less likely to occur.
Ambassador Painting received the Lead Paint Removal EPA Certification in 2011. EPA certification is needed to keep homeowners, children, animals, neighbors, as well as our crew safe from lead paint.
The process involves face masks a lot of plastic and hard work. If a company is found doing this kind of job without this certification they could be sued as could the homeowner. The Homeowner may be sued by their neighbors! Ambassador Painting is also required and committed to keeping up with all certification updates.
The staff of Ambassador Painting seeks to eliminate the exposure risks that are associated to lead-based paints and have years of training with the experts and carries the EPA certifications to prove it. We know how important safety is for you, your children, and even the animals that are around your home that we take the extra measures to follow the proper procedures and guidelines to accomplish this high standard of protection.
While removal of paint chips is inevitable for any painting project, with lead-based paint it is actually better to cap it, seal it or cover over the surface as much as possible as not to disturb the majority of what is there, to avoid creating airborne dust particles that are very dangerous to humans and animals.
If Ambassador Painting is selected to paint your home which may be found to have lead-based paint, we try not to disturb as much of the existing paint as possible but rather cap, cover it or seal it so that there will be little to no exposure of the old paint or dust. We are trained to keep lead-based paint exposure to a minimum as well as how to handle any loose or fallen lead-based paint chips correctly, according to EPA guidelines and EPA certified training.
Our primary focus with lead-based paint projects is safety from the exposure of chips or dust and we take that very seriously because of the potential risks associated with contact to humans and animals.
Ambassador Painting is fully certified to work on house Lead-Based Paint (LBP) abatement projects. Houses built pre-1978, must be tested before starting any surface preparation or repairs to interior or exterior surfaces.
Ambassador Painting knows all about important requirements to properly protect your family and property when it comes to Lead-Based Paint removal. We are required to educate, complete associated paperwork, follow specific work practices and complete additional cleanup to meet these requirements.
Ambassador Painting begins with informing and educating the Home owners of the health risks associated with Lead Based Paint. In addition, if the property is suspected to have Lead Based Paint, we are now trained to perform a test to confirm or deny the existence of it.
If the house is deemed to contain Lead-Based Paint then several documents are now required to be signed by the homeowners. Lead safe work procedures will be performed on areas that have been confirmed to contain lead.
The proper preparation procedures involve our staff personnel, the work area, and the type of tools that must be used along with required cleanup methods that are required to be followed.
Ambassador Painting could have continued in business without this certification. We simply felt that for the protection of our customers along with our desire to go above and beyond our competitors, we decided to add this training certification to our list of services for our customers’ best interest.
