Removing Lead-based Paint Safely and Effectively
For those who live or work in an area that contains lead-based paint, you may already be aware of the health concerns, how to lower the risk of exposure, and regulations around cleaning and removal. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enforces these laws and regulations to keep families, landlords, contractors, and everyone who may come in contact with lead-based paint, safe and aware of the dangers and what they can do to remain healthy.
