Asbestos-backed lino removal
We've just completed the acte de vente on a house in the Correze - just over the border, so hope I'm allowed to keep posting here!
We knew from the diagnostic that there was some asbestos in the backing of lino in the kitchen and a small loo and bathroom. The kitchen floor is parquet, but the floorboards have lifted because the house wasn't allowed to breather at all for a long time. Where the boards have lifted, the lino has cracked and it's easy to see what has happenned. The original backing (the asbestos bit) is stuck to the floorboards. We have considered removing this ourselves, but are wary of this, but didn't have the time on our recent visit to check out costs for specialist removal.
Does anyone had any recent experience of employing specialists, and what the cost was?
There are three separate areas, so we're talking about (kitchen, small loo and bathroom) a total of approx. 25 square metres.
I've posted this message on other forums and have had a variety of responses, but would welcome any advice so that we can go ahead and get it right.
