Removal vs cover-up of cork tile on walls
Half of one wall of our soon to be nursery is covered with glued on cork tiles. We only have 2 months until baby is born and limited time for removal. The cork is glued on and the chances of the paint underneath containing lead are high. I am afraid that removing the cork will expose chemicals in the glue and lead dust from the paint because it looks like we will have to sand off the remaining glue and possibly do some skim coating. Is there a safe and relatively easy/quick way of removing cork? Or do you have a cover-up suggestion if we wait until we have more time to do it properly and the baby is older?
