Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


If remodeling contractors aren’t already aware, the game has changed due to a new federal mandate. Contractors remodeling homes pre 1978 must have lead safe training by April 22nd 2010 and comply with the regulation. These lead safe work practices can be a daunting and time consuming task for inexperienced remodeling contractor. The extra man hours can add up on a given project and consume profits. This article attempts to give some insiders “tricks of the trade” from a former lead abatement contractor to help reduce man hours and keep material costs down while complying with the new mandate.

Plastic sheeting is your friend. Known as “poly” to abatement contractors, it covers your work area and makes for quick clean-up. Always purchase clear poly. As suggested by the EPA standards, cover the floor at least 6 feet out and construct walls with 4 or 6 mil. In addition, place a sizeable scrap of the heavier poly in the middle of the work area before covering the floor. This scrap will come in handy during tear down.

The author has found 12’ widths are most useful. This covers nearly any ceiling height, and accommodates traditional floor plans for most rooms so there’s less splicing.

Be sure to have two kinds on hand. Painter’s plastic can be used to cover shelves and articles around the room. It’s far less expensive and comes in handy for just covering the odds and ends.

Cut a runner from containment to the dumpster before work begins. Make it wide enough to carry supplies and materials. During rainy weather, make sure there is a mat of some kind to wipe workers feet before reentering the house. Poly is very slippery when wet.

Demo materials are often sharp and heavy. This is a problem when bagging the debris as the sharp edges poke holes in the bag and a trail of dust marks your path to the dumpster. A solution and time saver is to have plenty of garbage cans on hand. The trick is to fill the garbage can with the liner inside containment. When full or heavy enough, gooseneck it and leave in the container. The container can then be hauled to the dumpster and disposed of.

When dealing with heavy dense debris, it helps to have a container with wheels, as dragging a heavy garbage can will eventually wear holes in the poly runner. As demo proceeds, the bags should be staged at the doorway within easy reach. The bags or garbage cans should be grabbed from outside containment to save time going in and out of the doorway. Also, have one worker in containment stage the bags by the door and one worker outside that can reach in and grab them.

For a plaster tear out, an old piece of paneling can help workers have a place for the plaster to “land”. It’s also useful to scoop up the debris and bag. The paneling should be placed finished side up so there is a sealed side to vacuum up or wipe down. Any wood product is fine as long as it’s painted or sealed. Open wood is one of the most difficult to clean for lead dust, as the open pores and grain of the natural fiber harbor and lock in the dust. 5 gal buckets can be used for dumping the old broken plaster. Just line them with 6mil small kitchen size bags and carry the bucket to the dumpster.



When work is done, take the walls down first and collapse them gently on the floor poly. Then simply roll up the walls and the floor on the scrap you first laid down to dispose. This scrap catches the inevitable debris that escape from the roll when fitting it in the garbage bag and saves the time of vacuuming. The scrap can now be rolled up and disposed of also. After a contractor gets a few jobs under their belt, set up and tear down should go quickly.


The new EPA standard expects the remodeling contractor to isolate the work area, utilizing temporary poly walls. This is a standard in the abatement industry, and can be done quickly and efficiently no matter what the size or shape of the project.

The method of affixing the containment walls must first be addressed. Many contractors often tape the poly to the ceiling, forming a perimeter around the work area. This is acceptable and common, but has several issues. First and foremost it is very time consuming, also it can be very difficult to attach the tape to a textured ceiling or uneven surface. Due to the weight of the poly, the tape can fail and bring the wall down. The work must then be halted and time taken to reattach it. Finally, upon removal, the tape can peel and destroy the surface it was stuck to. These issues can be costly and add many man hours to a simple project.

Consider extendable poles. These poles are reusable, reducing labor and issues associated with using tape. Often marketed as cargo bars for pickup trucks, these ratcheting poles extend and clamp the poly to the ceiling no matter what the height or surface. The poles also negate the problems of disturbing the wall and tape destroying the surface upon removal. Although prices differ throughout the region, extendable ratcheting poles can be purchased inexpensively.

Plan the containment area by ratcheting the poles in place where the wall will be. Give yourself plenty of room to work, and plan an area by the containment entrance to stage the bagged debris. Once the poles are where you want them, roll out the poly and wrap it around the poles, defining the perimeter and determining the length. Give yourself a little extra, it’s no fun trying to stretch poly to the wall.

Having the poly cut to size, start unfolding it at one end to the full width. With a step ladder, take the tension off the first pole and tuck the plastic over the pole. Then ratchet the pole up, trapping the poly between the ceiling and the pole’s top foot. Repeat the process going down the length of the wall. Finally, tape the edges to the walls to seal the containment. The time it takes to set up the walls is of course determined by the size of containment but is far less then taping the poly to the ceiling without the issues of tape.


With the walls now complete, the doorway needs to be installed. It is important to limit the dust that migrates but also permits workers egress. Remember that all bags of debris and materials have to pass through so make it big enough. As described before, a staging area should be planned in containment by the door area.

Many times the worker can use an existing door and just attach the poly door to it. A time saver is to make a poly door that is reusable. First, cut a piece to fit over a standard size door. The measurement of the poly should be 38” X 84”. Cut the upside down “T” and covering dust flap. Now, apply duct tape around the perimeter and fold over the edges making a “picture frame” around the edge. Duct tape the flap over the “T”. The masking tape to attach the poly to the casings can be removed and applied over and over without tearing the poly. At the end of the job, just roll it up for the next project. The reusable door should be able to be installed in 2 or 3 minutes vs. taking 10 to 15 minutes to make a new one every time.

Although white suits are not required by the EPA mandate, they are nice to protect the worker from bringing home the dust after work. Putting on a white suit and removing it after leaving containment is far faster than vacuuming off all the workers clothing, but there are some things to consider.

White suits are sized small, medium, large and extra large. Purchase them at least a size bigger than the workers shirt size. During years of abatement work in white suits the author has found “large” is generally the size used by most, save for the most portly of workers that might need an XL.

During the summer, work in white suits can be very hot. Working in shorts and t shirts is acceptable but the temptation to shed any more clothing should be avoided. White suits are translucent and nobody wants to see more of their fellow worker than need be.

White suits generally come in one piece with footies. These footies tear during work very easily and will be tripping the worker in no time. Since the EPA guidelines are not abatement the footies can be cut off at the ankles and the ends taped with masking tape around the ankle. This will give much more traction and ease of movement.
Negative air is the key to keeping dust from migrating past containment. The importance of an air mover in containment cannot be overstated. It will save the contractor many hours of cleaning the perimeter of the containment due to the inevitable escaping dust through the door. Without proper ventilation, the air inside of containment can get saturated with dust from demo, making the work dangerous and intolerable.



Many companies sell them in a variety of styles and sizes. They can be readily looked up online and be purchased ready to go out of the box. These units can be pricey and the small business owner may consider them out of reach. The author has several units that were all constructed in house costing under $100.00 a piece. The following is a guide to constructing one in house for the small business owner.

Whether purchased or built in house air movers all do the same thing, move air. The higher the air exchange rate, the better but since they are carried to every site, size becomes an issue. The typical width should not exceed 30” and best if the total width is less than 24”. Most interior doorways are smaller than the 36” standard entry door. Remember the EPA’s mandate is homes pre 1978, and as most remodeling contractors already know older homes doorways can be small. The size of the unit is not as critical as the volume of air it moves per hour with the squirrel cage.


Squirrel cages from residential HVAC systems can normally be purchased cheaply to move the air and are a good choice for an air exchanger. Make sure it is clean and in good working order. The squirrel cage can be mounted to any material of choice, but the unit must be air tight and be able to be wiped down. Wood is fine as long as a quality semi gloss is applied for clean up. Handles and wheels are very useful and should be included; remember the unit has to be portable.

The intake for the dirty air should be filtered to save the squirrel cage from clogging up with dust. Although an exhaust tube can be used to expel the dirty air, there are times when there isn’t a nearby window or door to use and the air inside of containment must be expelled indoors. In that situation, the air must be HEPA filtered to remove potential lead dust. A typical home furnace filter unit that holds two standard air filters can be incorporated in the air mover for this issue. The first air filter should be a less expensive model that filters out about 90% of the airborne particles. This filter will save the second expensive HEPA filter behind it from clogging up quickly. It can also be vacuumed off every so often and cleared. The cheaper filter can be thrown away after the job is complete where the expensive HEPA can be reused. After the work is complete, the HEPA should be vacuumed and stored in a clean, sealed plastic bag.

A standard metal ductwork fitting can be installed on the air mover to attach the exhaust tube to. The tube is taped to the fitting and exhausted out a window or door. The tube itself can be purchased at an abatement supply house or found online. With the unit caulked and painted it’s ready for the first job.
[IMG]file:///C:/Users/paul/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image002.jpg[/IMG]
The air scrubber should be mounted to the poly wall. Placing the air scrubber in the containment area gets in the way and the exhaust tube can be tripped over and damaged. Furthermore, the unit will have to be vacuumed and wiped down after every use. A far better and faster way is to attach the air scrubber to the poly wall outside containment. Simply wheel the air scrubber up against the poly wall and with a sharp utility knife, cut around the filter area. Blue tape or masking tape can be used to seal the cut opening to the metal air scrubber’s filter housing.

Great post Paulie,
Yesterday, I attended the EPA RRP class and received my certification.
It is pitiful how many parts of the law and steps to be taken are very VAGUE!

So now that I'm an expert [NOT!!]
The above portion of your post caught my attention. Are you saying that only air exhausted to the interior needs to be HEPA filtered?
I can't see how venting non-HEPA filtered air to the exterior will fly with the RRP rules.

I asked my instructor (she was also my abatement instructor) specifically if the exhaust needs to be filtered, she said there's nothing in the mandate about it so no was her answer. I then asked to be sure "so I can just blow out dirty air on the ground"? She repeated, there's nothing in the mandate about it so yes. Is she wrong? I don't know but she's been doing this stuff for forever and she is buddies with many of the people writing the states guidelines. If you can find it in the mandate then bring it on, I'll forward it to her.

Module 4 Page 3 of the Student Manual for the RRP Training Course
box at the top 1/3 of the page:

Keep Dust Within the Containment
You are responsible for making sure dust does not migrate out of the containment.


Seems to me that blowing non-HEPA filtered dust laden air to the exterior is the same thing as letting dust migrate out of the containment.

I think you have hit it there. besides it is a total PITA to pull sealed filters (if you make your own I have found it easyer to seal the hapa module with silicone and pull it only to replace----this isn't asbestos ) just use the same setup and PREFILTER PREFILTER PREFILTER...... By the way great post.

I go the 22nd to a 4 hour refresher course to pick up my RRP oh joy

Re: Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


I've found that putting plastic up, no matter how carefully, doesn't make a lick of difference by the time the project is done. The dust always finds a way around it, and the plastic will either fall down or get ripped down at some point. Running plastic out to the dumpster sounds downright dangerous. I would think a better approach would be a thorough cleaning of all areas when everything is completed.

Re: Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


I agree with abacab , This seams crazy the dust just finds a way in no matter how much tape and plastic you use .
We demoed a kitchen dining room last week the openings where ply wooded and taped air tight.
The job was sheet rock walls , tile on hardy board . glass insulation .
We use a 36" fan to draw air out of the house ( No filter yet) The garbage cans get dumped into a skid steer bin 5' wide 4' deep 4' high at the window covered with a lid and dumped into a dumpster in the drive way . We use water to keep the dust down .
The job was demoed in 5 hours and moped down and vacuumed .
The house is still kinda dusty . John

Re: Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


After a year or two of lead abatement you learn to keep the walls up. The extend-able poles clamp the poly to the ceiling. If your just using tape to hold the wall up the yes it probably fall down as was addressed in the article.

Poly runners are typical for demo/abatement work. Once you grind in the lead from a pathway you'll never get it out. I've worked on them for years and never had a problem. When they get wet they do get slippery but a little caution goes a long way.

The EPA mandate specifically states to contain the work area. You don't have to make the room airtight if you use negative air. A fan in the window will not achieve the necessary vacuum in the work area and yes dust will escape. With the system I have I can sand drywall next to a kitchen with people eating lunch and not have any dust bother them.

The whole idea is NOT to have to clean the whole area. It's time very consuming. If it's something like a kids room full of toys there's no way a dumb carpenter like me can get them all clean and I need my rest at night.

Re: Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


Using negative air sounds like it will contaminate the entire outside(okay I see some are using filters). I like the negative air however, I did this using a window air-conditioner and it made the homeowner happy, as the dust wasn't getting sucked into his system in other rooms. Another problem I see with containment is that I almost never work in one area, and there is always traffic to a basement, door, or other room. It sounds like testing will not need to be done after the job is complete? Or is this going to be instituded later?

Just found a picture of a recent demo of plaster next to a kitchen with food and drink out. No problems.

My article was to help other contractors with the guidelines of the new EPA mandate with some tricks I learned from years of lead abatement. The mandate is NOT abatement and there is no provision for exhausting to the outside.

Re: Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


Great post Paulie,

Just a note ...

All door and windows in the containment area need to be sealed. So, if you use negative air, it will need to be vented into the house (HEPA) or have a long enough tube to where you can reach a window or door outside the containment area.

If I was to use a negative air system to the outside, I would make sure it was HEPA before going to the outside. Even though Paulie is probably right.

my opinion

Re: Helpful Tips For The EPAs New Mandate


Paulie, Way to go! The thing that gets me is I have been doing this type of set up for over 15 years now and when other contractors come on the job site they B itch about the noise of my dust collector, I am glade to see the Governments starting to make work areas better plces to work in, I know old timers who laugh at all this stuff to keep people safe. I have to laugh for all the years people have been telling me how clean their house was after I left. When I started out I use to tell people "Your going to find dust were you never seen dust before!" But for 15 years with the use of the dust collector I rigged up the only room that has dust in it, is the one we are working in. Real Good Post

My $.02 on the filtered/non filtered air exhaust. It could be a selling point with homeowners, esp those with kids that play in the dirt outside, or those that garden.

Paulie,
Got to love them harbor freight poles,

As to dust containment.

we already discussed plastic, and neg air, the next thing that you can use is water mist. your containment is now able to make use of this, it changes the way you approach demo but it works. If you don't make the dust you dont have to breath the dust or clean the dust.
or if you have a bunch of dust on the plastic wet it then scoop it.

Yeah we've done the wet scrape thing. Most of my work is plaster repair and tearing out a wall for a bigger bathroom or such. I haven't meet a spray bottle yet that will help with that kind of work. But yeah point taken the wet scrape does have its positive points.

As far as the filtered air mover, I always filter the air but the mandate does not address that issue. Like I said I need my rest at night so I always have filtered the air mover 2X.

My article was a response to a vacant spot in the whole lead debate that I perceived. Everybody was talking about how much it will cost, writing congressman, fines and enforcement. I thought I might be able to help out the small "Joe" by accepting the mandate right or wrong and giving some tips I learned over the years. A article just to help if possible. Maybe some information that could make it a little easier for a fellow contractor. That's all.

Glad you liked it Frankie.
