I believe that the wallpaper was coloured green with Arsenic or something else equally toxic.
Stripping the gloss off the woodwork on the stairs and there are faint traced of green paint. I have been using a knife to peel most of the paint off, but i will have to sand what is left.
Does anyone know if the paint also used arsenic and if so when paint used slightly less toxic chemicals? rather not breath in arsenic... even with a face mask some will get in the air is my reasoning.
Would i be right in guessing even if the paint isn't arsenic it probably has lead in it?
