Asbestos in ceramic tile?

Post by Mpmarvin » Mon Nov 13, 2017 6:14 pm

We want to get rid of this ceramic tile in the foyer and I started to work on it and then it hit me. I could be dealing with asbestos here. So I stopped. What's the likelihood I just messed up

It has that wire mesh backing. It's so tempting to keep moving forward because it's coming off the floor so easy.

The tile should not have any and either should the mortar

OMG!!!! You didn't?!?!!?

Just kidding, asbestos is typically in pre 80's vinyl tile and adhesive, so you should be good.
