So earlier we outlined the what, how and why of the EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. If you missed it, see below (February 1)!
Now we’re going to reinforce why you need to pay attention and be in compliance because it affects something we know is important to everyone: your wallet!
SIMPLE: If repairs/work are not done according to the RRP rule, all parties involved could be fined $37,500.00 per incident.
If a contractor might disturb more than six square feet of paint in a pre-78 home, then you must engage a lead based paint certified contractor for the job—or suffer the consequences. What are the consequences again? See above. Many, many dollars.
What is that expression about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure????
