Most people are not aware that there is lead present in their contemporary bedroom furniture until they would find out that they got illness from it..

EPA won’t actually enforce the training and certification, so what’s the point?

There are painters and renovators that have not and won’t get trained & certified. And they cost LESS to hire.

This may cost a little more on the construction bill but would be worth the cost. The contractor also needs to know how to dispose of toxics and hazardous materials in the right way. These are things that cannot be simply left in the regular trash or the recycle dumpsters. If at all possible, children should go to a relative’s house or a camping trip or something while the old lead paint is being taken out. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

What was the exposure route?
