Refinishing Wood Floors (lead??)
We are seriously considering purchasing a home built in 1930. MThe home has hardwood in a hallway, den, and bedroom. It appears to have hardwood under carpet in the living and dining areas as well. The owner, an adult now, grew up in the home and said it was always carpeted as far as she can remember.
My questions (I'm sorry if they are silly/we've never lived in an older home):
1. If I do refinish is there a danger of lead dust from the sanding part of the process? Were wood floors finished with lead in varnish or similar?
2. Can I tell if these are waxed or polyurethane? What would typically be on floors of that era?
