All responsibility lies with the property owner, who must initiate lead remediation work within (30) days of the violation in accordance with applicable law. This work is done by certified contractors, who must minimize the creation of dust and prevent its spread when performing work that disturbs a painted surface.
If lead remediation work takes longer than a day, the contractor should block off areas where there is lead dust. No occupants of the unit should enter blocked-off areas during this remediation period.
This type of work may require the temporary relocation of tenants in accordance with applicable law.
Once remediation has been completed, an inspector will return to the unit for reinspection to determine that the identified lead-based paint hazards have been appropriately remediated.
