We're removing a really dirty/disgusting 1970's linoleum floor in a home kitchen remodeling project. We heard older linoleums contain asbestos and we need to be careful pulling it up ourselves. The room is 17' x 9'. Is this really enough to be dangerous? It appears the floor in not tightly glued down and will not be difficult to pull up. We do NOT want to put new flooring on top of this old stuff...it's really gross. Is it unsafe to do ourselves? What precautions do we need to take?

Thank you!

don't worry to much about the asbestos,you can only release it if you sand the floor,vacume any dust you see,pull up (scrape)the floor,vacume again,keep the felt material wet by spraying water from a windex type bottle. good luck
