How do I know if flooring is asbestos?

Posted by Leslie on June 23rd, 2000 04:34 PM

Hi there,
The previous owners of my house put another subfloor (I think plywood)over an existing floor in the kitchen, then put 12" linoleum tile over that. I want to rip up my existing kitchen 12" linoleum tiles and both subfloors and put down ceramic tile.

Trouble is, I'm not sure what the original floor is. The house was built in 1950, so I'm afraid it might be asbestos-containing tile. How can I tell? I don't want to open pandora's box by ripping up the subfloors.

Thanks for your help!
