Iím hoping the GTT community can help ease my concerns.
I recently purchased a reclaimed door trim set from a local architectural salvage company to make into a mirror. I brought the door casing into my basement shop that is walled off from the rest of 5he shop. I chipped off the peeling pain5 with a putty knife and heat gun at times, as well sanded more stubborn pieces with course grit paper by hand. I then proceeded to break the pieces down with my chop saw, metering the ends for glue up. Afterwards I picked up the paint chips and dust, etc with a broom, dust pan and handheld shopvac. After completing the project, it dawned on me that I should have tested the pieces for lead paint beforehand. Sure enough, the test kit from Amazon tested positive for lead.
I have small children that on occasion, like to help dad with projects and Iím concerned about residual lead dust. How clean is clean and should I be worried? My kids were not in the shop during or after this latest project, but should I be worried about them working with me in there in the future?
I appreciate the feedback. Thanks
