What other toxins are lurking in our house?
Well, we were certainly aware that lead paint was present in the house and we're planning to tackle that this summer upstairs. The new toxin we learned about was the possibility of asbestos in the vinyl flooring in the kitchen and the bathroom. I ordered a test from AccuKits.com (recommended by a fellow blogger) and we'll see what we learn. The bad news is that if it is asbestos in the kitchen we'll just have to put flooring over it - this will bring up our floor height dramatically and make things kind of a pain in the butt. If it's not we can tear away. We're thinking about cork flooring for the kitchen - it will be nice and cushy for the toesies. Wish us luck!
