The plaster and lath in my 100 year old, Seattle house has to go for several reasons. Among other things, it is deteriorating, and I need to rewire and replumb the house to bring it into the 21st century.
My realtor told me to assume that there is lead paint on the walls. My questions are:
1) Can I remove the plaster and lath safely myself?
2) Is having the walls tested for lead really a waste of time (as my realtor suggested)?
3) What precautions do I need to take to avoing contaminating myself and my house with lead dust?
