Asbestos Flooring Removal – Doing it The Correct Way
Asbestos flooring removal is required for many buildings constructed before the mid-1980s. Asbestos backed vinyl sheet flooring and vinyl tiles containing asbestos were used in housing and commercial buildings during this period. Asbestos flooring removal of asbestos backed vinyl sheeting must be carried out by an “A Class” asbestos removalist. Depending on the asbestos flooring removal method, a “B Class” asbestos removalist may remove the asbestos vinyl tiles, but it is always best to have the flooring tested for asbestos, and then take the advice based on the asbestos flooring results.

Removing Damaged Asbestos Flooring Safely
There is a low risk of exposure to asbestos if the asbestos flooring remains undamaged due to the asbestos backing being sealed from the atmosphere by the overlaying vinyl. However, if the asbestos flooring has been damaged and needs to be removed, it is important that this asbestos material is removed safely.
Traditional methods of removing asbestos involve encapsulation of the area requiring plastic containment, negative air units, generators, decontamination units, full face positive air masks etc. The asbestos floors would then be removed using electrical jackhammers and by dry grinding the floor.
