This product was usually manufactured with materials found in nature, such as stone, ceramic, marble, wood and clay, or artificial ones, like vinyl and resin polymers. Until the 1980s, the floor tiles’ ability to sustain damage from fire came from the asbestos fiber added in their production process.

The toxicity of floor tiles was pretty low as long as they remained intact. The risk of them getting friable in time was almost nonexistent. By cutting or damaging them when removal was required, made the asbestos containing tiles to release asbestos dust in the nearby environment. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old structures
  • You helped install or remove asbestos floor tiles
  • You performed demolition work
  • You did remodeling work in old buildings
