Our house was built in 1909 and amazingly has a pretty large basement. The basement had some previous water issues which has been dealt with and now dry for the past three years.
We are going to start working on the basement to finish it and have two young kids. It is not painted so I don't think I need to worry about lead. Is this correct?
Our furnace is downstairs and we still might need it. The contractor said that is won't be a problem because the return air in on the main level and we are sealing off the basement. I just don't want my kids (or any of us) getting exposed to any molds or possible lead. Thoughts?
