Where new meets seamlessly with the best of the old.
Homework Remodels is proud to be one the Valley’s first remodelers to be certified by the Environmental Protection Agency to perform lead safe work practices in older homes with lead paint.
As of April 22nd the EPA requires anyone workin for compensation in homes built prior to 1978 to become certified in lead safe work practices. All work for compensation disturbing lead paint is now to be performed to the EPA standards or risk major fines and /or jail time. The regulations also apply to landlords working on or hiring work done to their rental property.
Homework remodels has always worked hard to operate with clean work sites with minimum dust exposure to our clients and their homes. We are pleased with the new higher EPA standards for work in older homes. The new federal regulations will insure that everyone working in older homes will be required to protect their clients from the health issues of lead exposure from lead paint.
We urge all homeowners to follow lead safe work practices during work they do themselves and insist that anyone else working in your home do the same.
Our recent EPA training classes have illustrated to us that lead dust exposure needs to be taken seriously as a health risk our client and our craftsmen. Please join us in working to make our homes a safer place by respecting the dangers of lead paint in our older homes when you remodel.
