Asbestos Floor Tile Removal
Can anyone enlighten me on the Maine DEP’s minimum abatement requirements for the removal of asbestos floor tile? The Hospital has some small offices in which we’re replacing carpeting, under which there are old asbestos tiles. We typically have had an abatement contractor remove all of the asbestos tile from these types of projects in the past; however, if most of the tiles are sound, and a just a few are loose or damaged, does the state allow removal of those tiles without going through the notification process and using a licensed abatement contractor to conduct the removal?
