You could level the corner areas with a leveling compound found at any Home Center Store, to match the surface to what you haven't removed yet. I had to do this when I replaced my kitchen floor in my house. It is far better to encapsulate the asbestos than it is to remove it.

I am all ready committed to removing it because I previously picked up the loose corners prior to this and will be uneven to install a new one. I contacted a friend who works for a restoration company and will lend me the filter I will use my respirator. Luckily the area is small and I plan to wet it a pray bottle and use a razor scrapper to remove the backing.

This could all be for nothing but if the test was to come back positive and would have to do this any ways, but better safe than sorry! This all in the fun for the resto. of these little trailers, I will post some before and after photo's.

Hi Brad,

Today I'm undertaking the same project you've posted here. The corners were peeling and there was black mould underneath so it had to come up. How are you finding the removal of the remaining adhered linoleum? Any tips you've learned along the way would be great. Otherwise I've got two days of scraping ahead of me. If anyone else wants to chime in great!

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Yes, not a fun day of scraping. I did end up gutting the inside bare and suited up to sanded the few small area's. It was pretty messy so dragged to work do it out side. It was all worth it in the end, I will post some photo's of the work this week end.

Good luck,

Brad
