Prying carpet tackboard out of asbestos vinyl ... safety issues?


So, I couldn't say for sure that the vinyl in the second story of my home has asbestos, but judging from an estimated date of installation, I would be surprised if it was any other way.

I'm ripping up carpeting currently, and I'm just wondering about pulling the tackboard out of the vinyl. Does prying a nail out of an asbestos vinyl floor pose any health threat?

Pull the nails and be done with it. Just don't eat the nails.

You'd need to be scraping the heck out of those tiles or snapping them in order to get any significant friable asbestos in the air. Pulling nails won't be an issue.
