I have hired a firm to renovate my home, but now I am concerned about whether the firm is a lead-safe certified firm. How can I find out?

Answer: EPA has a searchable database to help you locate lead-safe certified firms near you at:  It is possible that your firm is not yet listed on EPA's web site, but is certified.  If you do not find your firm on EPA's web site, you should call EPA's lead hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD (5323) and speak to an expert who can help you find out whether your firm is certified.
