Answer: No, because a flexible floor covering cannot be tiled.

There are vinyl asbestos floor tiles in some homes, they are not dangerous as long as they are in good condition. Tiling it would be an easy solution, but unfortunately it is impossible: a flexible floor covering cannot be tiled. You have no choice but to remove the asbestos vinyl. The wisest would be to entrust this task to a professional of the sector, of which it is the trade. But, if you really want to do it yourself, do not forget the essential protective elements as defined by current regulations: a mask with P3 filter, a disposable suit (type 5), a vacuum cleaner with filter very high capacity, and a waste bag specially designed for asbestos. Once the vinyl tiles have been removed, it will also be necessary to level the floor before tiling. You too, send us your brico question
