Many houses and apartments built before 1978 have paint that contains lead. Lead from paint, chips, and dust can pose serious health hazards if not taken care of properly.
In order to minimize potential lead hazards from renovation or repair activities, Federal law requires a two step process. The first step is that contractors must provide lead information to residents before renovating or repairing pre-1978 housing. This is known as the Pre-Renovation Education (PRE) Program. It requires contractors to give property owners and tenants a pamphlet titled “Renovate Right”, before starting work. The second step is known as the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule. This rule requires contractors be certified and follow lead-safe work practices.
