My husband and I have signed a contract on a home in Marietta, Georgia. Its about 100 years old and many layers of paint and wallpaper on it. We did not take the lead paint issue seriously, until I started doing research on it on the Internet. I found some very scary stuff from the EPA. I'm planning on getting pregnant this fall and I'm concerned that if the house has lead paint it will affect me and my baby's health. I have a call in to a lead paint abatement contractor, but I have no idea how much it will cost or if removing the paint is a good ideas. Any thoughts?
