Asbestos Encapsulation


Just started to renovate my basement, when I removed the carpet (has been there for 10 years) I saw that there was 9x9 tiles which have been already removed, but could see the black glue still on the concrete. Some have told me that the adhesive material used for gluing the tile had asbestos in it and needs to be enclosed/encapsulated. I've done some research and there are a lot of product which do that (in form of paint coating) does anyone have any suggestions on what is the better product out there. or should I put plywood or Masonite over it.
any suggestion?
Thank you

What are you going to put down? That determines what you need to do with the cutback.

I would just cover it back up with carpet and pad. If you don't disturb it and it was okay for 10 years, why change anything now?

Rusty Baker thank you for the advice, I was thinking the same thing but I just thought since I'm removing the carpet it may disturb it, the carpet was not really glued but after so many years it's kind of stiking to the ground.
thanks
