of April 22, 2010, a new law governing renovations that
contain lead paint became effective. Aimed at protecting
against lead-based paint hazards, the EPAs new rule
applies anytime a lead paint surface is disturbed by renovation
or painting projects, including repairs, maintenance, electrical,
plumbing, carpentry, demolition, and window restoration
/ replacement. The rule also requires renovation firms to
be certified by the EPA, and that they assign at least one
EPA Certified Renovator to the job to ensure that lead-safe
work practice standards are observed. Leeds Clark Inc. is
an "EPA Certified Firm",
and both Tom & Chris Clark are "EPA
Certified Renovators". Go to www.epa.gov/lead for additional
information about the new EPA rule and other Lead Programs.
Clark is not a licensed or insured asbestos abatement contractor.
