Lead Safety Certified Sacramento Roofing Companies
Usual tasks done by Sacramento roofing companies like sanding, clipping, and tearing off of roofs could disturb lead particles in homes suspected of having lead based paint. This is something that you do not want to happen. When looking for reliable roofing companies to work on your home, make sure that they are lead safety certified like Yancey Home Improvements.
Damaging Effects Of Lead
One of the main sources of lead poisoning is from the lead found in paint, and lead-contaminated dust. Lead is especially dangerous to your children. As their bodies are still growing, they tend to absorb more lead than adults. This can cause serious damage to their brains and nervous systems, which are much more sensitive at a young age.
Little babies and youngsters also like to touch everything and then put their hands in their mouth, as parents well know. This gives them greater exposure to the lead in dust and the soil, where it is also found. Of course lead isn’t all that great for adults either, and should be considered a health hazard no matter what age you are.
For this reason, the Environmental Protection Agency or the EPA published the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule on April 22, 2008. Generally known by roofing contractors as the RRP, this rule basically requires all roofing companies in Sacramento to be trained in lead-safety practices to avoid lead contamination in homes and other structures.
What this means for you
This means that if your home was built before 1978, the law requires you to hire an RRP Certified Renovator (CR). A Certified Renovator is responsible for the proper handling of suspected lead-contaminated waste. This protects you and your family, especially children and the elderly, from lead poisoning.
