SGB Custom Painting is your Lead Certified Contractor in Chico, California. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made it a priority to reduce the exposure to lead. On April 22, 2010 the federal law requires that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb more than six square feet of paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and trained to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. 

These exposures can be very damaging to children whose nervous systems are still developing, and can also be a threat to a pregnant woman with her unborn child. Childhood lead poisoning remains a major environment health problem in the United Sates today.

There are numerous steps to take the meet all the EPA regulations when performing work on lead paint in homes.
