LEAD SAFETY IN YOUR HOME
The safety of your family is of the utmost importance for us on every project we undertake in your home. We take every precaution to ensure that lead dust is properly contained by following or exceeding the strenuous guidelines outlined by the EPA.
Below are some of the steps of a Level 2 (RRP) Containment we are currently implementing to protect your home and family.
The first step is to remove furniture, area rugs, curtains, blinds, food, clothing and other furnishings from the room with the wood windows. Due to liability restrictions, we ask our homeowners to complete this step before we begin the project.
- Remove anything that prevents access to the wood windows
- Minimum clearance of six feet from the wood windows
- All furnishings removed from the room is best but not mandatory
cover up everything
If everything cannot be removed, we will put a plastic tarp over anything left. Plastic sheeting is then placed on the floor and taped to the baseboards directly in front of the windows up to six feet back. A plastic sheeting door will be setup in the entry point.
- Cover up remaining items with plastic sheeting
- Plastic sheeting on the floor six feet back
- Entry made from plastic sheeting on doorway
clean up filtration
Every shop vac operated in your home will have our 3 stage, 7 layer HEPA-rated self-enclosed lead filtration system to help minimize lead dust contamination. Below are some of the features and benefits of our triple filtration system:
- Stage 1: High-Efficiency Dust Bags
- Stage 2: Super Performance EE Filter Bag
- Stage 3: 5-Layer Allergen HEPA-Rated Filter
