Asbestos Tiles

Posted by Cherylynn Hamilton on September 18th, 2000 11:11 AM

Okay, I think I may have done a really stupid thing, actually I know I did but it is really a question of to what severity has my action been stupid....

I was told by someone that Ammonia is a great wax stripper but I didn't listen to the whole process so yesterday I poured straight ammonia on the floor and almost killed myself on the fumes. Suffering a bit today. I only got 2/3 of the floor done before I couldn't take it any more. Now, the area that I did get done is flat(which I expect because there is no wax and probably no finish) but it is chalky under my feet. These are asbestos tiles, or atleast I am assuming so (1954 flooring), and I am scared that this dust may be asbestos dust. What do I do?
