Adhesive on wood floors


Hello. We are planning to refinish the wood floors in our living room. Half the floors were covered in carpet and half in ceramic or porcelain tiles. We have taken the tiles off, which revealed some sort of board over the wood floor. After taking off some of this board, we see a lot of black residue/glue underneath. Is it possible that this adhesive has asbestos in it? Picture included. Thanks for any info!

Re: Adhesive on wood floors


I think it's possible that is old cutback adhesive, and you ought to test it before further cleanup.

Re: Adhesive on wood floors


If it can't get airborne, it can't hurt you.
It looks stuck down tight and will be covered again, no worries.

Sure hope you tested those tiles though before pulling them.
