My 1yo daughter came back with slightly elevated lead levels (5.3). Our house, which we've rented for the last six months, is old but has been extensively renovated and painted many times in the last 15 years. It's also possible she picked up the lead from somewhere else she frequents.
(I also tested the water in our house, and it was negative for lead.)
My question is what to do:
Since the paint on top is new, should I just assume the lead is from elsewhere and leave it alone?
Should I use lead encapsulation paint and paint over everything?
If so, do I need to take further precautions to prevent the spread of dust? Do I need to buy protective gear, an N100, and so on? This happens in some youtube videos, but it's always with chipped lead paint that requires removal as well.
Do I need to call someone else in who's "lead certified" to handle this?
