Typically, asbestos millboard is made up of 100% asbestos. To ensure safety, this type of asbestos removal work must be done using a full enclosure with negative air extraction units.

While the millboard is still attached to the floor, it should be wetted down as the vinyl layer is peeled away.

2

While the asbestos millboard needs to be dampened properly, do not wet it to the point where pools of contaminated water are formed.

3

If heat is needed to soften the old adhesive beneath a vinyl tile, be sure avoid burning the tile. Otherwise poisonous decomposition products can be produced.

4

To make removal easier, the vinyl can be cut into strips before bagging or can be rolled into single roll and wrapped and sealed with plastic.

5

If some of the asbestos millboard on the floor surface remains there, soak it with water and then scrape away.

6

If you are considering using other methods of removal for millboard, be wary of excessive fibre release from the asbestos millboard and other additional hazards.
