5 Facts about Asbestos Linoleum

Disposal of Asbestos Linoleum

Before the mid-1970s, asbestos was indeed used in the manufacturing of vinyl sheet materials. After asbestos usage was prohibited, surviving supplies of asbestos-containing flooring were sold into the late 1970s or early 1980s, suggesting that the vinyl floor in a 1981 house could contain asbestos. The only way to be certain is to do a test on the content.

Does flooring contain asbestos?

Asbestos may be present in flooring materials such as sheet vinyl, floor tiles, and any accompanying paper-like backing, adhesive, or glue. Asbestos was put to flooring throughout the manufacturing process to reinforce it and increase its longevity.

When is flooring hazardous?

When intact and in good shape, asbestos-containing flooring is not considered harmful. However, heat, moisture, or aging can cause flooring to become friable. Friable refers to the ability of the flooring to disintegrate under hand pressure. Additionally, flooring can be made friable during removal. Friable flooring can cause asbestos to be released into the air. When asbestos is released into the air, it poses a health concern to those who breathe it.

What comes to mind when you think about linoleum? It’s likely that the flooring is old and worn and in need of repair. Any homeowners elect to tackle the challenge of removing linoleum and vinyl flooring on their own. But for health it better if you leave it to the hands of professionals like us. Therefore, if you’re searching for experts, you’ve come to the right place.

I am very pleased with the work performed by Environmental Services Of America. Elias came out to look at a job, talked to me through it until I understood the entire process. They showed up on the schedule day and worked till the job was done. Elias sent pictures of the progress every day and when I got back to the house it was perfectly clean, they could not have done a better job.
