have a professional perform an air test to make sure that there is no asbestos exposure risk

I just discovered some suspicious linoleum in a rental house I am updating. An abatement company was hired to take samples. They say the linoleum has a 7% asbestos content. But, they have refused to give us the report on the grounds that my wife and I "wouldn't understand it." Now we don't trust them either. If we remove the linoleum ourselves, can we cut it into smaller pieces without releasing the asbestos? What we have are large sheets with the edges glued down. Any suggestions? Thank you.

If someone placed a tightly pinned wooden floor over mostly intact floor tiles, would that be alright?

We recently bought an older home. We riped up the floor tiles in the basement that could have contained asbestos, cleaned it up and laid carpet down. Then on the upper floor we drilled down ¼ inch plywood on top of old tiles (floor boards are open to the basement) and put down ceramic tiles.
By drilling into the floors did we send asbestos fibers into the basement and create a health risk?
Obviously, we could have exposed ourselves to asbestos. Though, on the go forward are we currently in danger or should we be fine?
