I have 12 stairs in my new (or should i say newly purchased but built around 1950) house with the small asbestos tiles (with metal stripping along the edges as well.) In order to have carpet put on the stairs I was told by the installer who came to do the measure that I need to remove the tiles myself?? Everywhere I read it screams "DONT DO IT YOURSELF" but it seems to be my only option.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I wear gloves and a surgical mask? Can I get sick from doing only these 12 steps?
Please help carpet being installed this Saturday.
