EPA Lead Safe Certified Firm
Long Painting has been approved and certified by the EPA under the EPA’s CFR – Part 745—Lead-Based Paint Poisoning Prevention in Certain Residential Structures. This certification allows Long Painting to perform lead based paint activities in target housing and child-occupied facilities in the state of Washington. This certification was issued after an evaluation of Long Painting’s safety procedures and its past records of working on projects involving lead based paint. There are very few painting contractors in Washington with this certification and it is another testament to Long Painting’s goal of conducting its operations in a manner that protects both its employees and the environment from the detrimental effects of lead.
