Hi all Having just bought our first home I'm v new to this whole DIY thing so apologies if these Qs are daft. Started painting my landing the other day and long story short it bubbled - clearly there was wallpaper underneath. The first few strips (under where I'd painted) came off dead easy, but the rest of it has been a chore. My partner and I set about it yesterday - we have masks and goggles but we took the masks off after a bit as it was sweltering and it wasn't too dusty. Underneath the paper there are a couple layers of paint, and some mostly ok plaster. We bought a wallpaper steamer but it was broken, so we were just using elbow grease and metal strippers. We've managed to get a couple bits up (smaller patches pictured, larger patches came off more easily downstairs), but as I was falling asleep last night I had the horrid thought it could be lead paint under the paper. I've ordered a testing kit which is coming soon (hopefully today). The house was built in 1912 - I know the majority of houses built in the first half of the 20thc are basically guaranteed to have *some* lead paint, however I'm now freaking out I've poisoned my partner and our cats. If the test is positive, do I have to get us tested, or will the exposure be minimal? Also, is there a safe way to remove the wallpaper if the paint underneath is lead? When we get a working steamer, will this be safe to use on it? Or should we just cut our losses and get some pros in? Thanks in advance!
