PVC or vinyl flooring products and related products can often contain small amounts of asbestos, including around 5% of very fine chrysotile. Larger and often visible amounts of chrysotile can be found in black and brown thermoplastic tiles. Old sheet floor coverings were sometimes backed with a thin layer of chrysotile paper, as were some types of underfelt such as hessian underlays for linoleum and carpets.

Asbestos might also be found in the mastics used to bond the covering to the floor. Some hardwearing composite floors contain about 2 per cent of mineral fibres, which may include asbestos.

The best way to make sure that asbestos tiles are removed without harming yourself or others is to speak to a professional. Each step ensures the safety of the individuals around, and incorrect removal can lead to asbestos breaking, making it more likely for deadly fibres to get into the air. Don’t put yourself at risk.

Bonded Vinyl Floor Tiles

Removal procedure


Safety First

Safety First

Using a paint scraper or other wide blade, lift each tile away from the floor, using a gentle action to lessen the chance of breakage. A hammer may be of use to help lift stuck tiles.


Keep dust down by spraying water mist beneath the tiles as you lift them.


Put the tiles in a 200 µm plastic waste bag. An alternative is a dedicated container dedicated for asbestos waste that is clearly labelled with a warning.


Also remove any adhesive that is remains on the floor using the scraper or blade and put it in the same bag or container.


If heat is needed to soften the old adhesive beneath a vinyl tile, be sure avoid burning the tile.


Once all the tiles have been removed perform the appropriate cleaning, decontamination, waste removal and disposal procedures before area can be re-occupied by humans.
