Renovation, Removal, and paint rule

As you may be aware, a new EPA rule that went into effect April 22, 2010 requires every contractor and all maintenance personnel working in pre-1978 properties to complete an 8-hour EPA course on lead safety for renovation, repair and painting. This includes apartment buildings, daycare centers, and kindergarten classes. While this rule will benefit all involved and help keep our children safe from the dangers of lead-based paint, it will be a costly requirement with penalties of up to $37,500 per day for non-compliance. We would like to offer you an alternative to training that is hassle-free and certainly less costly.

 As a state-licensed provider of environmental and mechanical services for more than 13 years, primarily in the  treatment of lead-based plumbing, Stanley’s General Maintenance has both the knowledge and the experience to guide you through this rule and help you comply. Rather than having all current contractors and maintenance personnel, as well as any who may be hired in the future, trained in lead safety, you can opt to have your property tested for lead-based paint with non-destructive state-of-the-art X-ray fluorescence equipment. If no lead paint is found, you will receive a “Lead-Free Status” certificate, which exempts you from the RRP Rule. If lead paint is found, the RRP Rule will only apply to those particular surfaces until they are treated.

If you would like more technical information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to speaking with you about your lead-based paint or RRP Rule Concerns
