I have a house built in 1968 and in the basement the floor is covered with 12X12 vinyl tile.
I had sent the sample for asbestos testing and it came back negative for tile itself however the black mastic on the tile has 6% asbestos.
My questions are
- What are my option to cover the floor?(I am thinking of putting floating vinyl planks) - the floor is in good condition overall except few tile which are chipped and cracked.
- Should I paint the floor (so that it encapsulates the material) and then cover it with floating vinyl floor or some other product?
- If I were to go for floating floor then I will face problem with slop since there is a drain in the center, how would I deal with slop for laying a floating floor?
