Asbestos tiles – how much cracking is too much?
I’ve learned that I have floor tile in my basement that might contain asbestos. I was told as long as I don’t disturb them I really have nothing to worry about.
However, a lot of them are already cracked & they crack even further the more I walk on them. I’ve swept up the ones that crack into small pieces, but for the larger ones I leave them be.
If these tiles are so brittle that they crack that easily, does this mean it’s time to just break them all up just to get it over with? I’m concerned because this is the furnace room & I don’t want them to crack into small enough pieces to be circulated by the blower.
