Floor tiles that are snapping cracking underneath there layer on con create base on top thick black that's chipping off I've moved blind as the council won't touch them they took photo . In case not safe . The smell won't go it's in walls every where. The reason I'm asking is me dad called out big stile isle of grain powerstaion for protective clothing for the men the men fought and won .

Before I go into one I need to get me facts right and builder took photo as they have to be tested he wouldn't pick one up ??????? If I'm wrong please god if I'm right they ain't covering it up

Hi

Vynal floor tiles of a certain age may contain asbestos ( Chrysotile )

As the asbestos is incapsulated in to the product it’s unlikely to present any health issues. If there is damage then the whole of the flooring should be removed and replaced.

There’s know way of knowing without being tested whether your particular tiles are affected. You can have asbestos containing tiles as well as non asbestos containing tiles on the same floor.

It’s the landlords responsibility to address the issue.

We live in social housing, our landlord does an annual check on the floor tiles and other parts of the house (sofits and facias) for asbestos deterioration, and they arranged for a professional company to get rid of our old floor standing boiler because it had asbestos too. But my dad who owns his own house was advised not to have his old asbestos garage removed, as it could be more dangerous to move it than to leave it.

Hope you get it all sorted out with the council faithful.They should get back to you when they have looked into it. Keep nagging and speak to someone else in the council or go to your go for advise

From my understanding if you can see hessem sack like material in worn floor tile that’s asbestos bit of tile.

School I worked at had classroom floors with worn tiles like I described kids use to throw them around as all broken up.

Then during asbestos survey managers had cord carpet glued over them just in time.

What makes you think they are asbestos? I wouldn't have thought so. I have asbestos in my lungs and I used to work with it, but never heard of floor tiles made of asbestos.

I'm sorry it's they took photo and said in case the stuff underneath and disturbing floor so I have to wait it's being disturbed when walk .sorry I was worried as of liver .

Hi

Many floor tiles contain Asbestos, often used in 60/70s

hse.gov.uk/pubns/guidance/a...

ok then you need to get out of there

What if I'm wrong after two weeks here the smell hidden under stairs was bag full of the tiles they ripped up or there animals did in hall under stars removed the bag full of dust stunk the smell ain't so bad now two weeks even scrubbing the floors of mould animal toilet ect Thankyou

Mould can be deadly, it causes people to be very ill. Spray with hydrogen peroxide you can get this from Bobbys Healthy Shop on the internet. just as a precaution if its a big area wear a mask because of your condition. But it has never harmed me in fact I drank a teaspoon for many years with apple or orange juice but it has to be food grade H202

Bless your heart Thankyou irefused to do it on ceiling they treated it I done a post I was not scare people but as I got ADHD I get mixed up.

Good read. As asbestos is in many things still but while they are not distrurbed they do not present so much of a threat but once they become airborne they are a problem.

Hi vinyl tiles once broken can be a risk re asbestos, You can get this inspected by a professional surveyor who can give you a report that you could show the council to enforce your complaint. Try the web for a suitable professional in your are

I'm grateful for reply it's as soon as contractor said no we can't touch them we have to take photo as it could be harmful . So first thing in me head was check for toxins as this whole place was used as a animal farm pellets you name it I wanted sleep on street so bad.
