What does it mean to be a member of the NKBA?

 

The National Kitchen & Bath Association has been leading the kitchen and bath industry for more than 45 years.  With over 40,000 members across the United States and Canada, the NKBA requires professionalism and ethical business practices from all of its members.  When you buy a product or service from a business that’s a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association, you know that the company has agreed to be bound by the NKBA’s code of professional conduct.

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children.

 

To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

 

The EPA requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities, and schools be certified by EPA; and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices. Individuals can become certified renovators by taking an eight-hour training course from an EPA-approved training provider.
