LDR Becomes Lead-Safe Certified Firm

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

(Rockford, IL, May 6, 2010) – LDR Construction Services, Inc. & LDR Cleaning & Restoration announced today that LDR is now a Lead-Safe Certified Firm in the states of Illinois and Wisconsin. On April 22, 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) program rule. This rule required contractors and maintenance staff performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint to become certified by April 22, 2010. The certification applies to those firms conducting renovation and maintenance activities in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities, elementary schools, and some common areas of public and commercial buildings, such as restrooms and cafeterias. The rule requires renovators to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. The risk is greatest in buildings where lead-based paint is present, especially in those facilities that are regularly occupied by children. Contractors produce dust during renovations, repairs, and surface preparation for painting. Dust always has the potential to present problems indoors, and even outdoors. By working lead-safe, workers prevent and/or control dust. LDR is aware of these regulations and has taken the proactive approach to ensuring these regulations are complied with.  LDR completed an EPA-approved training course, and submitted the required paperwork with the EPA to obtain its certification.  With locations in Rockford, IL and Janesville, WI, LDR has been providing restoration services since 1991.
