pulled up the linoleum does it have asbestos?


[QUOTE=olzo55;1184246]I don't expect DIY ers to understand friable/non-friable materials.

That statement sort of assumes DIYer are rather simple minded ,doesn't it?

No I don't think so. Just that they don't have the lingo. But if they want to get out the dictionary......

Back in 1983, I worked at the biggest carpet retailer in Kansas City. Reps from the EPA gave us a talk. They said, if at all possible, underlay over VAT, if not possible, get it wet and scrape it up.

OK. But there's a little more when you're giving advice to people that don't do this every day, no? Just wet it? That's true but a little light on the whole method. The RFCI fills in what you didn't say. The EPA has info, too.

The OP asked his question in 2008---after five years,I'm sure the 'freaking out' has stopped.

What about you? You are pushing the exact same thing on other forums. I think you thrive on controversy.

Ok. Some interesting comments. I wandered here looking to view a concrete staining post that got kicked here from CT.

This topic has been revived twice since it started.Once 2 years after it started and commented on. And now 3 years since the second revival and comments made. I didn't start this revival. But it must be something people search.

What is the chance of 2 posts on the same topic on different forums? Search "asbestos" and find your favorite forum. Here's the number of topics on asbestos:
Floor Pro-977 threads: Contractor Talk-818;JB forum-317. Consumer forums? This Old House-2,355;Holmes on homes-785; DIY forum-500. Controversy? Just happened to be at the same time.

These threads will be seen by contractors and DIY ers for a long, long time. My comment was to give them complete and accurate information. They should check out the EPA,OSHA websites. Some trade associations are good too. The RFCI info follows the EPA.

And don't forget that this site has a disclaimer that comments here may not be accurate or complete and they should use their best judgement regarding what they read.
