The Lead Hazard
Lead can be found in paint on homes that were built before 1978. The Consumer Products Safety Commission banned the use of lead-based paint after that year. If your home was built before 1960, then it probably has even more lead paint. Peeling, chipping, chalking or cracking lead-based paint is a hazard and needs immediate attention. Lead-based paint may also be a hazard when found on surfaces that children can chew or that gets a lot of wear-and-tear. Constant friction or rubbing of surfaces can cause paint to deteriorate. These areas include:
- Windows and window sills
- Doors and door frames
- Stairs, railings and banisters
- Porches and fences
- Exterior of a house (due to harsh weather)
Potentially Hazardous Renovation Activities
- Dry scraping or dry sanding
- Using an open flame or torch to burn off paint
- Power sanding or grinding (unless shrouded tool with HEPA vacuum attachment is used)
- Using methylene chloride – it’s toxic
- Cutting into drywall
- Replacing windows
But how exactly do you design your new building to be energy efficient?
We use EPA tools and resources to ensure that energy is addressed at all levels of your project—from pre-design all the way to construction.
