Parkin Electrician’s Work Lead Safe
As a Certified Lead Based Paint Renovation Contractor with Oregon Construction Contractors Board (LBPR35151) Parkin Electric can help you renovate right. Federal law requires contractors that disturb painted services in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. The rule applies to disturbance of more than 6 square feet of interior painted surfaces and 20 square feet of exterior painted surfaces or window replacement or demolition. Lead paint dust is the way most people are exposed to lead and children are at the highest risk for being affected from lead exposure. If your home or facility was built before 1978 and we will be disturbing any interior painted surface greater that 6 square feet, Parkin Electric can test the painted surfaces to be disturbed to verify the presence of lead. We are trained to contain the work area to prevent the spread of dust and in the proper procedures to thoroughly clean the work area.
