What Projects Does the RRP Rule Affect?
What Is Considered Renovation Work?
For the purpose of these guidelines, renovation work is any project completed for a fee. This includes only work done to upgrade, fix, or improve the property, not projects specifically conducted for lead abatement.
What Does the LSR Contractor Do?
The certified LSR supervisor on site must provide the homeowner a copy of "Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care Providers and Schools," a publication released by the EPA. The supervisor tests each surface that will be disturbed by the renovations to detect the presence of lead. If lead is present, contaminated items remaining in the area will be sealed with plastic sheets and duct tape to prevent further lead contamination. He or she will also visually inspect the work site after the project is over to ensure that paint debris, dust, and chips are completely removed from the area. ASAP Environmental, Inc. has been providing lead paint inspection services for clients in the New England area since 1993. Our certified, experienced inspectors use the latest technology to detect the presence of lead paint throughout the home.
