Lead Abatement Rules
Lead-based paint can be a serious issue, whether it is present in your home or your business.
Lead-based paint is a source of lead poisoning, which can lead to severe health problems and even death.
For this reason, the USEPA, HUD and OSHA have established strict requirements that must be followed in order to keep the lead abatement worker and those that will re-inhabit the space safe.
