I'm worrying myself sick. We live in a Victorian house and husband started sanding our bedroom door frame and a sill in the stairway. I'm pregnant and read it's ok to sand, then I came across a link about lead. I told him to stop so half the door frame has been sanded. When we moved in 10 years ago we painted over these areas. How can you tell if the paint underneath was lead based? I've ordered a test kit but in the meantime I've slept downstairs because I'm paranoid. The room was ventilated and we cleaned like crazy afterwards. I was mainly downstairs when he was sanding but I did go up to have a look and there was dust in the air. The cat was also having a little stroll upstairs.
Here are.some photos. Please help as I'm reading horror scenarios online. Thanks Nina
