Hi all. I am a mom who is currently freaking out. We have a 4 and 1 1/2 year old and are currently renovating/fixing up a 1932 cape that we purchased. We do not currently live there but the kids have been there from time to time. Anyway, as I was painting the kids rooms I noticed the paint on the windowsills chipping heavily. I did an at Home lead test and it tested positive. We had a lead inspection company come in and test the entire house. All of our baseboard moldings, door jambs and doors, staircase, and window frame and sills tested positive. We are currently trying to figure out the best route for DIY abatement. While trying to figure this out I had a sickening feeling come over me. I realized that the staircase that we had professionally sanded was covered in lead paint!! The top of the staircase leads up to both kids rooms and their bathroom. This company obviously didn’t know there was lead present (neither did we at the time) and took no precautions. Now I am freaking out. Are there lead paint particles everywhere on my home now? In my kids rooms/bathrooms? We spent all of the money we saved on this house and now I’m sick to my stomach. I don’t want to put my kids in danger. Please help.
