Terrified about possible asbestos tile removal.


I remember reading the warnings on the glue that you shouldn't consume alcohol before installation because it increases your risk of colon cancer...Blakely's is a floor covering supply in the midwest and they have great adhesives that are safe

If you are really worried, look at getting your ducts cleaned. If there was any fibers they will probably be in your ducts. Remove the filter before the cleaning, then put a new one after. Not a bad idea to do this in a new home anyhow. I've been wanting to get mine done as I don't think it's ever been done.

[quote=Aaroncarpet;492463]they were having us use cut back in the nineties
The only black adhesive we used was an asphalt emulsion adhesive. By 1987 we couldn't even buy cutback in our area.
I do remember some of the gluedown carpet adhesive back then. Some days you were so stoned from having your head in a bucket of glue, you wondered how you drove home.

(sorry about the thread hijack)
