Asbestos identification opinion please
I know to be sure if the tiles under the carpet on the second floor of my 1940s home contain asbestos is to have it professionally tested. However I am just not 100% sure they do contain as asbestos. I was going to have Home Depot install new carpeting in both rooms upstairs, but due to the the measurement guy reporting the tiles could "possibly" contain asbestos they wouldn't install the carpet unless it was tested and/or removed.
I pulled the carpet back where the measurement guy had looked to look more closely and they just don't look like the asbestos tiles I've seen. One tile came up and I looked underneath at the underlayment which doesn't seem to have any glue, rather a mesh type cloth.
I would love to hear anyone's opinion on this. My plan is either to install a floating wood floor if the tiles contain asbestos or if the tiles don't I will install nailed hardwood flooring.
Thanks in advance for any advice/opinions!
