I have an old house which has been painted sloppily over the years.

I am planning on tackling the paint on the interior doors, so I bought a lead test kit to check for lead paint.

When testing the paint, I do not get a positive result, but the underlying wood turns pink.

Does this indicate lead is present? Could it be that the house was abated,but that lead from the original paint migrated into the wood?

It could be that there's trace amounts of lead.  I wouldn't probably sand those doors, but we've used citri strip with great results.
