Before you decide to get some work done on your old Queenslander, you must have it tested for lead paint. Instead of hiring a professional inspector, you can buy a DIY lead paint testing kit from major retail hardware stores or paint shops. If the Lead Paint Test is positive, you must abide by the rules that govern the removal of Lead Paint, ie. there is to be NO SANDING of Lead Paint, Scraping away at loose edges only.
