For lead paint removal Spokane, WA, there are many strict guidelines. Hiring professionals who know the lead based paint law and are certified for lead paint removal is most beneficial for you. As of April 2010, Federal Law requires contractors that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools, built before 1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
Before the 1970s, household paint often contained lead. As lead paint ages, it can chip or crumble into dust. Exposure to lead-paint dust or chips can cause serious health problems. Children and pregnant women are at higher risk. So, if you live in or own an older home, you need to know how to protect yourself and others.
