When it comes to renovations in the home or business, safety is of course the number one concern. But all of the sanding, cutting, and demolition sometimes creates a hazardous environment if workers are not careful, especially if the renovations involve lead-based paints. The resulting chips of paint or dust can cause illness in adults and children. Thankfully, our team at Window Nation has Certified EPA Lead Renovators to be sure that your improvement projects are done with the utmost safety.
To become a Certified EPA Lead Renovator, one must take an eight-hour training course from an approved trainer. Contractors learn how to comply with EPA rules and follow the latest in lead-safe work practices, including techniques for minimizing dust, containing the work area, and clean up.
According to the EPA website, this certification is required for remodeling projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities, and schools. If there is ever suspicious or unsafe activity in one of these renovation sites, it should always be reported.
At Window Nation, we take pride in our certifications, knowing they will allow us to provide safe and top quality renovations. We offer energy efficient, certified EPA installments of windows, doors, and siding for homes and businesses in Cleveland, Charlotte, all of Maryland, the DC metro and Northern Virginia.
