Installing self-stick vinyl tiles over old linoleum
I just purchased 12" vinyl self-stick tiles for our kitchen. Currently, our 1930's house has carpet in the kitchen that I need to remove. Under that is two layers of linoleum. Since this is old linoleum, I am assuming that it is made with asbestos so I don't want to remove it, but install over it.
My question, the gal at Lowe's where I purchased the tiles, said to scuff the linoleum to create a better adhesion for the tiles. I did some research online and read to NOT sand old linoleum due to the asbestos.
The tiles need a smooth surface and I'm a little nervous about how to achieve this.
Anyone have any advice?
