Does This Tile Adhesive Contain Asbestos ??

Postby LeRouret » Sat Feb 05, 2022 11:40 am

Hello....removing tiles from bathroom floor.
The house was built in 1970 and I am pretty sure they are the original tiles....underneath the tile is a black layer...see attached picture.
Is this adhesive/mastic with asbestos ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi lerouret,
I doubt anyone will be able to give you an answer from your pictures. Search on line for an asbestos testing lab and arrange to have a piece of your floor checked.
