The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lead based paint removal laws are now in effect. As of April 22, 2010, contractors or individuals who are paid up to renovate or repair child care facilities, homes, and schools built prior to 1978 that disturb lead based paint in the operation, must be a Certified Renovator and a Certified Firm. The penalties for not abiding this rule are very stiff, up to $37,500/per day. The dust produced from scraping, sanding, or demolishing any lead based paint has been determined to be exceedingly dangerous to both children and adults. The goal of the EPA is to limit the amount of lead contamination spread by disturbing lead paints.
