I recently pulled up old congoleum in my basement and found a tar base substance underneath that could contain asbestos.

I recently pulled up old congoleum in my basement. It looks like a tar base substance underneath that held it in place. It wasn't until after most of it was up that someone said you better be careful it could contain asbestos. How much danger am I in now with that floor exposed. I am preparing to lay laminate soon.I have a grand child that visits once a week and 3 pets that walk on that floor constantly.

Alice,

Please review the Environmental Protection Agency's web site "Asbestos in Your Home."

Both the flooring and the adhesive could contain asbestos. I recommend you engage a locally licensed Asbestos Professional...
