I’ve mentioned before, we live in a 90-year-old home. Yup. Well…. I guess she’s 93. Built in 1920. It’s tiny and
needs a lot of work is unique. The entry to our home is covered in the UGLIEST pink tile. There’s hardwood under there. I can see a sneak peak of the hardwood every time I come in the house… but we’ve never tried to pull the tile up and check it out.
Last night… I did it. I got tired of staring and decided to just check and see what’s under there. There are 2 layers of tile over the hardwood. I’m pretty sure the tile is glued to the hardwood… which sucks. BUT, anything is better than that pink tile. ALSO, things I didn’t think about before I messed with this bottom tile: asbestos. Oh yeah. that. It’s an old house, so I need to be safe. I have stopped messing with it for now… and plan to make a couple of calls tomorrow. I don’t think it’s asbestos, but I want to be safe.
Have you ever dealt with asbestos? Any advice with testing? Have you tried a home kit?
