I'm purchasing a home that was built in 1957. At one point the flooring in the basement was pulled up and there's black stuff on the stairs, as well as in one of the rooms in the basement.The substance is easily breakable and almost of a spongy consistency, but very dense. On some of the stairs, there's what looks frayed strands from carpet but I'm not sure what was on the floor. Can anyone tell me what is it carpet padding or if its the backing for floor tile?
Help! Asbestos!(Sorry for the repeat post… Because I’m not sur... 2 REPLIES
