Painting California Contractors License required
Buildings constructed in or before 1978 are likely to contain lead-based paint that can be disturbed during remodeling or demolition, creating dust and exposing workers and occupants to the potential health hazards associated with lead.
As of April 22, 2010, contractors remodeling or demolishing more than six square feet indoor or 20 square feet outdoor must be trained and certified for lead safety by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) to work in homes, childcare facilities, or schools built in or before 1978.
Scientific studies show children with high levels of lead in their bodies can potentially suffer from:
- Damage to brain and nervous system
- Behavior and learning problems
- Slowed growth
- Hearing problems
