Asbestos-backed Vinyl Flooring Removal – Doing it The Correct Way
Typically, asbestos backed vinyl flooring is made up of 100% asbestos. To ensure your safety, this type of asbestos removal work must be done using a full enclosure with negative air extraction units.

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.
