Replacement Windows: How Are They Installed?
REQUIRED TESTING FOR LEAD-BASED PAINT
Homes in Baltimore, Cleveland, DC, and throughout the United States that were constructed prior to 1978 could contain lead-based paint. As of April 2010, Federal law requires any contractor performing renovation, repair or painting projects where lead-based paint is disturbed to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
These work practices include:
- Containing the work area
- Minimizing dust
- Thorough cleanup
- Verification process
This rule will apply to any location built before 1978 and includes homes, childcare facilities and schools, where a positive lead swab result has been determined.
