Woodchip removal dust concerns
I want to rid a couple of bedrooms of woodchip wallpaper and can not face doing it myself. The house is built in the 1920s.
I have a few quotes and they are around a grand for each room which includes the removal of all wallpaper from all walls including the ceiling, sanding + filling with a dustless sander, and putting wallrock liner paper on for a smooth finish and if walls can not be made perfect without a full plaste + painting. Also includes woodwork but I might get new skirtings and doors + wood flooring so not decided on that yet.
I am worried about how much dust will end up in the house even though they are using a professional dustless sander. Would it be a lot still or barely anything?
Also concerned when they take the woodchip off the ceiling if it could be asbestos material underneath and they sand. Would it be clear to a pro if it was an asbestos-free material such as plasterboard etc or something more sinister?
