Thank you in advance for your help...I'm lost on this one.

I have just purchased a home with what I believed to be a concrete floor under the stained carpet and pad in the basement.

My plan was to remove the carpet (which covers two sunken floor drains) and stain the concrete.

I have now discovered that under the carpet is asbestos tile which is intact and removal of which is not in budget.

I am looking for options for the basement. We do not want to carpet the basement because of the sunken drains, moisture and heavy canine traffic.

Is there a way we can safely work with or cover the existing asbestos tile which will give us a somewhat attractive floor? There are three bedrooms down there as well as a bath and family room. I am open to any ideas including painting or concrete.

Thanks for your expertise!
