EPA Lead-Safe Certification

What does it mean to be lead-safe certified? Do you need to have a company that is EPA lead-safe certified? 3BIDZ has partnered with Alside – a company whose employees are EPA lead-safe certified. We also have independent contractors we use who are EPA lead-safe certified.

If you have a home or building built before 1978 there is a good chance there is lead in the paint or pipes used when the building was built. What does this mean to you? Lead is proven to have serious health risks. Children are more susceptible to the problems of lead poisoning because they are more likely to ingest lead dust. Lead affects the human brain, nervous systems, adult reproduction, high blood pressure, memory, and muscle and joint problems.
