My answer to Jill was regarding painting newer cast iron baseboard radiators - I have two rooms with those (additions) but all my other rooms have 80 year old radiators. They all have beautiful covers so I haven't painted the radiators themselves (been here 30 years.) I have scraped off loose paint once in a while when I vacum or dust them and I am betting that loose paint is lead based. So what do I do to repaint the radiators? I want to sell my house and I will have to disclose lead paint. I understand if you have painted over it with non lead paint you are in the clear. Does anyone know if this is true and have any suggestions for me? I was going to go ahead and scrape and prime and paint. I guess I need to wear a mask to chip off all this ancient paint. There are still tons of loose areas.
