Tanya Peterson Felsheim on Jul 07, 2013The main concern about the lead in the paint is mostly about animals or children injesting them as opposed to the fact they exist. I would scrape off the paint that can be stopped off and I found this product can't think of what its called but it makes anything stick to anythin--might be called never peel--that stakes care of things falling after you seal with that.Helpful Reply

DoItGreen Home Services on Jul 09, 2013Hi, If your house was built prior to 1978 there is a better chance that the paint did contain lead. If you want to know for sure most paint store or Home Depot carry test kits. The danger with lead paint is the dust and or ingesting paint chips mostly children will taste chips and like it cause it taste sweet. Anyway, do not sand at all and use a specific primer and paint that will encapsulate the old coating in most case it is only necessary use the encapsulating paint from the floor up to 5' you can do more but it is not necessary. I Hope this helps, HowardHelpful Reply
