Indoor Air Quality Hazard Contributions

  • Lead-based paint

  • Asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM)

  • Moisture infiltration


What is lead
What is Lead?

  • A chemical element (Pb)

  • An additive used in paint to make it more durable and resistant to rust and corrosion

  • It is also a dangerous poison

  • Lead-based paint was banned in 1978 for residential use by the Consumer Product Safety Commission



What can I do to prevent exposure to lead?

  • Have an accredited Lead-Based Paint Inspection Contractor conduct an inspection for lead-based paint.

  • If you are not going to be doing any renovating yourself…

  • Hire an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm employing only EPA Certified Renovators and workers who have been trained by an EPA Certified Renovator.

  • If you are going to be doing some or all of the work yourself…

  • Become an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm, become an EPA Certified Renovator by taking the 8-hour EPA Certified Renovator Initial Course and maintain certification by taking the 4-hour refresher course every 5 years.


Why should I use/become an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm employing EPA Certified Renovators and other trained workers?

The Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule requires:

  • Training providers must be accredited.

  • Renovation firms must be certified.

  • Renovators and Dust Sampling Technicians must be trained and certified.

  • Non-certified workers must work under and be trained on-the-job by a Certified Renovator.

  • Lead-safe work practices must be followed for work covered by the Rule.

  • Renovators must educate owners/occupants.


What is asbestos? employing EPA Certified Renovators and other trained workers?

  • A naturally occurring mineral

  • Used in thousands of building materials

  • Bans by EPA for certain ACM began in 1973 and continued through the 1980’s and 1990’s

  • May cause adverse health effects such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis


Why was asbestos used and where would I find it? employing EPA Certified Renovators and other trained workers?

  • Why?

  • Increases durability

  • Water resistant

  • Good sound, heat, and cold insulator

  • Where?

  • Sprayed-on fireproofing

  • Acoustical insulation

  • Floor tile/floor tile mastic

  • Pipe, tank & boiler insulation

  • Electrical insulation

  • Wallboard & cement pipe

  • Ceiling tile

  • Textured Paints

  • Caulking (HVAC & Windows)


What can I do to prevent exposure to asbestos? employing EPA Certified Renovators and other trained workers?

  • Prior to any renovations of homes built before 1989…

  • Take a 4-hour Asbestos Awareness course for the ability to recognize potential asbestos-containing building materials and the understanding of what regulations govern the identification and removal of such materials.

  • Hire an accredited Asbestos Inspector Contractor perform an inspection prior to any renovations in pre-1989 housing.

  • If asbestos-containing building materials are found, hire an accredited Asbestos Abatement Contractor to remove the materials prior to renovation.


Where does mold/fungal growth come from? employing EPA Certified Renovators and other trained workers?

  • Mold (or spores) + Organic material + Moisture = Mold Growth

  • Temperature 40 - 100º F

  • Relative Humidity 60% or higher

  • Some will grow on materials with a moisture content of 16% or higher


What kinds of adverse health effects can mold/fungal growth cause?

  • Avoidance Reactions

    • Discomfort, itching, burning, etc…

  • Allergic Reactions

    • Asthma and Respiratory Illness, Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis

  • Toxic Effects

    • Organic Dust Toxic Syndrome, Pulmonary Hemosiderosis

  • Infections

    • Aspergillosis (allergic reaction, colonization, or invasive infection)

    • Histoplasmosis - associated with the droppings of birds and bats (flu-like symptoms)


What can I do to prevent moisture infiltration and exposure to mold/fungal growth?

  • Take a 4-hour Mold Awareness course for the ability to recognize potential sources of moisture infiltration and what methods should be used to address such sources.

  • If building materials are suspected to have mold/fungal growth, hire a contractor to perform indoor air quality sampling and collect bulk samples.

  • If wanting to perform mold remediation work yourself…

    • Take the 2-day Moisture Infiltration and Mold Remediation for training on personal protection, work area preparation, and proper waste management.

  • If not wanting to perform mold remediation work yourself…

    • Hire a contractor certified to perform mold/fungal growth remediation work and request to see training certificates.
