Question DetailsAsked on 7/28/2015

We are having windows replaced. How do I know the company does, indeed, do the lead remediation they say they will?

I am 5 months pregnant, and so the issue of lead remediation, and its being done right, are of paramount importance. Please identify tools we should see them use and signs of a cleaned and remediated "after" state, so that we can be sure we get the lead remediation our windows company has promised.

First you should not be there during installation and als not during the removal of the old windows. Injestion of lead is the big hazard. Dust partiles should be carefully removed and cleared away especially around food preperation areas. There is a guide line pamphlet from the E.P.A. on how to protect your selfs from the hazaeds of lead paint. Your window company should have supplied you with a copy. You can go to E.P.A. web site and read first hand about the requirements for contractors. You should see lots of plastic covering floors , walls, tables, beds in the areas around work. You should see hepa vacs to clean and clear out dust. and you should see a clean test pad after the area was completed. You shoud not see dust, dirt, chips, etc. once the area was deemed clean.
