We are starting to clean out an old house that we purchased.
It's a 1939 house so there's probably lead underneath the painted surface. I plan on doing some RRP (renovate, repair, and paint) on my own. And according to the EPA recommendations, we should use a vacuum with a HEPA filter
Is it adequate and safe enough to get a normal shop vacuum and buy HEPA filters for it OR do I have to buy a special HEPA shop vaccum for ~$250 - $300. Also, is a household vacuum with HEPA filters another alternative?
At the end of the day, I want to get the right protection for me and for my kids when I'm cleaning up.
