Since the early 1920’s manufacturers have been adding asbestos to all kinds of building products to take advantage of its ability to provide great insulation. It was used in everything from cement ceiling sheets and cement roofs to flues, water tanks and pipe lagging. In particular it was added to vinyl floor tiles as it helped to produce a cheap product that was easy to lay and extremely durable, and many houses dating from the 20s have some form of asbestos product in them.
While adding asbestos to vinyl floor tiles to increase its flexibility and hardness obviously seemed like a good idea at the time, we've since learned that asbestos can be hazardous to health. Although this may not be a big problem if your tiles are in good condition, if they start to break up or become worn, they can become dangerous. It is possible to remove damaged and worn tiles yourself, however you must take great care when tackling asbestos vinyl floor tile removal, as it's not as straightforward as it sounds.
The asbestos tiles are likely to have been glued to the floor, meaning that as you remove them the old glue holds onto some of the asbestos fibres contained within the tiles. And, as we all know, it's these fibres that prove hazardous.
