If you happen to live or work in one of the older properties in Melbourne, it's possible that the floors are still covered with the original vinyl flooring. However great this might be, did you know that this old vinyl could also have had asbestos added to it to increase its insulation and make it more durable?
In the past, many vinyl flooring products were made with the addition of asbestos as it not only made the flooring easier to lay, but it meant that it would last longer. Therefore, it's likely that some houses, schools, hospitals and workplaces still have the original floors in place and, due to the length of time they've been laid, it's also likely that these will have deteriorated to the point of having to be replaced.
However, before you try to remove this kind of flooring yourself, you may want to consult with an experienced asbestos removal company , as they have experience in removing all kinds of asbestos products, including asbestos vinyl floor sheeting removal. While it sounds like it should be a straightforward job, it can be made more complicated if the flooring was glued to the floor, as the glue will have trapped some of the asbestos fibres from the flooring and it's these fibres that are hazardous to health.
