Similarly, how do I become a lead abatement contractor?
There are 4 steps to be sure you are in compliance:
- Register for an EPA or state-approved lead abatement certification course.
- Pass the Lead Abatement Certification Exam at the end of the course to receive a Certificate of Completion.
- Register yourself and your company with the EPA or your local state lead program.
Likewise, how much does it cost to get lead certified? The average estimated cost of a typical lead paint inspection of a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home ranges from $350 to $450. If the home inspection reveals lead-based paint, then you may need to hire a lead risk assessor to determine whether the paint poses an actual health risk.
Keeping this in consideration, what is a lead paint abatement?
Lead abatement is an activity to reduce levels of lead, particularly in the home environment, generally to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards, in order to reduce or eliminate incidents of lead poisoning.
What is an abatement firm?
Abatement is a specialized activity designed to address lead in the home. RRP activities (including most home contracting work) disturb paint as a consequence of the activity, but they are often undertaken for reasons unrelated to lead issues.
