A. Depends on the scope of the renovation. Basically, follow these guidelines during the renovation project to protect your family or the children (and pets) in your care:
- Stay out of work areas while work occurs
- Move children and pets to a different location until the work is completed.
- Turn off forced air heating and air conditioning systems while work is being done.
In the case of large projects, you will find it more convenient and less expensive to move out of the house due to the new lead-safe work practices. With large or whole house renovations, we can set you up with a camper trailer during the lead-safe renovation work. Once the work is completed and clean-up meets the new Rule standards, you can move back into your home. Other options past clients have used are taking a vacation, moving daily living activities to another portion of the house, or possibly living with relatives/friends.
