I have a large basement in a split level 1960s home with old 12 x 12 linoleum (likely asbestos) tiles on concrete slab. The total area is around 450 SF. I would like to put in a slate tile floor, ideally by leveling the floor then using Ditra. The linoleum tiles come up very easily without much fuss, so I don't mind donning a respirator and bagging them up for proper disposal. What worries me is the glue underneath, which also likely has asbestos in it.
Can I encapsulate it or cover it with a leveling compound? I need to level dips and imperfections in this floor anyway. Is there any product that will adhere to the old glue? I'd love to no have to worry about scraping it up.
Here's a close-up picture where two tiles came loose. I have done tile floors before, but never had to deal old asbestos linoleum this before this house. Any recommendations are appreciated!
