Lead is a dangerous substance, especially to young children and babies. It was formerly used in paint, but since it has been found to be fatal, it is now illegal to paint your home with lead paint due to the dangers associated with it. However, because regulations weren’t adopted until the 1970s, many older homes may have lead paint.
Scott Rajavuori and his company, Titus Contracting LLC, are certified through the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Lead-Safe Certification Program to remove lead paint. Removing this type of paint can increase risks of lead poisoning if not done right.
“It’s a great certification to have,” Scott said. “Being Lead-Safe Certified enables Titus Contracting to help businesses figure out if they have a problem with lead, which can be a serious health hazard.”
