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.

We weren’t sure if the was asbestos in our floor or not. We called in the morning and they sent a technician out that afternoon and we had results the next day. Great technician, great customer service, all around a good experience with them.

Elias and crew were great to work with. Their estimate was in-line with others I received, but they were much faster in both getting me on their schedule and completing the work than the others. They did a fantastic job and I’d use them again in a heartbeat.
