Avoid the Hefty EPA Fines by Using Compliant Products & Procedures

Become EPA certified today!

By using compliant products and procedures, you can reduce your chance of being tacked with a fine from the EPA.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (EPA RRP) has been in full-force, by penalizing contractors that are not using the proper products and processes required for renovation work. With millions of homes across the country aging, renovation contractors are called on to do projects that require work with lead paint. As a section of the rule states, if a contractor works on any home built pre-1978, you must be trained, certified, and using lead-safe work practices. The fines for not complying with the guidelines can be as high as $37,500 per incident, per day. With this rule in place, many contractors have already contacted the leader in dust control solutions, Dustless Technologies, to get their hands on the full line of certified HEPA vacuums, tools and accessories to help them comply with the regulations when doing renovation, repair and painting.

Recently, 16 contracting companies coast-to-coast were levied a fine by the EPA for violating the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule. These companies were fined for using non-compliant products, and not being approved to work with lead. Being non-compliant can cause harm to the environment as well as human health. Lead exposure can cause a spectrum of health issues effecting every organ and system in the body. For children, some of the long term health effects can include brain, nerve damage, and digestive issues. The EPA RRP rule is working to make sure all contractors and companies are following protocol on working with lead to prevent these types of health problems.

Dustless Technologies has a range of products from vacuums to point-of-origin dust collection accessories for grinding, painting, sawing, or sanding. Being a market leader in some of the technology of the products, Dustless Technologies continually strives to stay ahead of the needs of the market. One advantage to the full unit certified HEPA wet/dry vacuum is the Wunderbag™ micro pre-filter that extends the life of the internal HEPA filter. The outer micro pre-filter is an inexpensive, disposable filter that captures a vast majority of dust before it reaches the more expensive internal HEPA filter. With the external Wunderbag™ filter capturing 99% of the dust; it only leaves the tiny microscopic particles for the HEPA filter. This is a major cost savings for the HEPA filter since the external Wunderbag™ is filtering most of the dust first.

Contractors must go through proper training to become certified for working with lead, and use products that meet and exceed government standards. This way you can easily avoid all the fines from the EPA. For more information on training programs, and how to become certified, click here.
