Lead paint inside kitchen cabinets
My kitchen cabinets don't have a back - they are just attached to the wall, which you can see when you open a cabinet. The wall is painted, and that paint has start to come off in dust form. I'll open a cabinet or drawer up, and there will be a little pile of dust sitting there. I thought at first it was wood, as it is the color of wood and the doors and drawers stick a lot when you open and close them. But no - it's paint, and definitely old enough to be lead paint. Needless to say, I'm rather concerned.
I am guessing I'm not the first person on this forum to have this problem, and I'd love it if I could hear what other people have done to resolve this. I am not sure if this is something I can take care of myself (very carefully, following the standards I found listed on the NYS gov't website) or if I would be better off hiring someone to do it for me. The original plan was to encapsulate it with latex primer and then paint it, but since it is dusting off I don't know if that would be a viable option.
