Evening All
Just very briefly been to look at a large kitchen floor i'll be tiling soon.
Under the old carpet there were approx 10' vinyl tiles laid
over what appeared to be Approx 4' vinyl tiles.
Looking through an asbestos book they mention a low level of asbestos can be found in vinyl tiles and can be difficult to decide which has or hasn't.
What do folk do when they come up against this instance.
I'm sure for everyones safety a proper asbestos check should be carried out but when reading the history on the forum of tiling where vinyl tiles are,many seem to have lifted without any thought about asbestos and seem to only be concerned about the black tar.
Does anybody always have vinyl tiles checked out?
Best to be safe
Cheers
Kev
