Forum Title: Handling Asbestos Floor Tiles
When you cover over asbestos tiles do you take any precautions or just lay the floor over? When we replaced our homes living room it had those tiles so I laid a very thick gauge plastic liner over the entire thing and then duct taped along the sides. Afterwards we had to level with compound so that was another layer, then the padding and finally flooring. Probably overkill with the plastic lining but more peace of mind for us.

I think asbestos is reletavely safe if it's left alone. It only becomes an issue when it's disturbed i.e. cutting, sanding etc which creates dust. I may wrong but that's my understanding.

Don't saw it or grind it or get an abundance of particles airborne and it is said to be manageable.
