Our professionals are prepared to provide expert historic home and lead law painting in San Diego when you need us the most.
We want to help protect you against dangerous lead exposure. As painters, we are required to be EPA certified in RPP.
However, here is a list of activities that require RPP-certified professionals in pre-1978 homes:
- Electrical work
- Paint preparation
- Window replacement
Essentially, any work that will disturb lead-based paint in homes or child-occupied facilities needs to be completed by EPA-certified professionals. Houses built after 1978, are “zero-bedroom”; places that have been inspected and found to be lead-free or services that disturb less than six square feet of paint inside, less than 20 square feet or less on the exterior don’t require this licensing.
Local San Diego Painting wants to be here for whatever you need. That’s why we’re certified with ten years of experience providing expert historic homes and lead law painting in San Diego. Lead-based paint can cause serious health issues that damage vital organs and cause behavioral problems. Let us protect you from these dangers while keeping the charm of an old-fashioned home.
Any work done on pre-1978 homes can be considered a lead-related renovation if the paint has not been tested in advance. The EPA created the RRP rule, so professionals who may come into contact with lead are trained and certified to remove and dispose of this material appropriately. California has various other public health laws that further protect our communities from lead.
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) passed Title 17 to include lead testing in residential and public buildings. This establishes that lead testing should be conducted with XRF equipment or paint chip sample analysis. This can be completed before renovations to confirm that you need certified professionals.
The Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) created Title 22 to regulate the management of this hazardous waste after removal. This ensures that lead is destroyed correctly and doesn’t end up in municipal water.
The HUD, or Department of Housing and Urban Development, also created lead testing and removal protocols. These guidelines are required by Title 17 and the City of San Diego Lead Ordinance.
All of these laws work together to protect our vulnerable communities from the dangers of lead paint. At Local San Diego Painting, we work hard to follow these guidelines so you can have a charming home that’s safe for your family. When you need expert historic home and lead law painting in San Diego, we’re the certified professionals you can trust.
