Don't remove any more of the tiles!!!!They are pobably asbestos tiles. For the last few weeks I have been racking my brains. The best thing that everyone could come up with (and actually the least amount of work) is to appy a leveler. I spoke to a tile man and he suggested a product called Ardex. I did come across that name a few times when I was searching. He told me I really should have not even removed the vinyl and that this stuff can go over that as well. As long as the vinyl was stuck down properly.I pulled my vinyl up and opened a can of worms. I wanted to shoot my self. As for you I would go with a vinyl floor over the old tiles and use and area rug. That would be in my opinion the wises choice. Because you really don't know what kind of tiles your dealing with. With the Ardex and the vinyl all that will be sealed. I'm not sure you'll get that with carpet. What ever you choose I wish you the best of luck. By the way I love the user name. Keep me posted
