Babies/Toddlers and peeling finish

Q: The finish on my floors is peeling. They were done before we bought the house so I don’t know what kind of finish is on them. They’re shiny with a yellow tint. Is this a health hazard for my son?

I try to keep him from putting things in his mouth, that have touched the floor, but I’m not always successful.

A: I don’t think it matters what finish is peeling off your floors. It is best that your son not eat it. I would suggest going away for a week or 2 and getting the floors re finished so they don’t peel.
