Renovation, Repair, and Painting
If you live in a home built before 1978 and you are planning on doing your own repairs, we strongly recommend you taking a Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) training. At an RRP training, you will learn how to use Lead Safe Work Practices in your home. We have encountered children with high Blood Lead Levels whose parents were doing their own repairs on their homes. Please make a RRP or the similar Lead Safe Work Practices training a top priority if you disturb painted surfaces in your own home. Call our office to see when the next available training is.
