Kentile questions

janicedallasMay 26, 2010

I have 1987 Kentile floors in the kitchen, breakfast room, and utility room and utility room bathroom that are 98% in good condition. Are they an asbestos problem? If so, how do I get rid of them? Do the hardwood flooring places take care of that or what????

Be more specific. Describe the tiles. If they are solid vinyl made by Kentile, you have no asbestos issue.

I'm pretty positive they are solid through and through because that is why I bought them originally. They are 9 " white brick pattern squares and I have no idea what floor glue was used. Thanks for your reply.

If what you are describing is Kentile Colonial Brick vinyl tile, don't worry. Colonial Brick was only made in the 9" X 9" format; as far as I can remember there were no vinyl asbestos 9" X 9" tiles made by Kentile in a brick pattern.

The glue is probably an alcohol-based adhesive or a multi-purpose latex. Those adhesives contain no asbestos.
