Very old linoleum found, how to move it??
Hi! We have removed the carpet from an upstairs bedroom in our 1898 farmhouse. It appears to have 1920 art deco print linoleum floor over five inch pine board flooring. I would love to remove it from that room and re-install in the laundry on th first floor. Does anyone know how to make it pliable enough to remove it without breaking it into tiny pieces? Also, it appears to be just tacked into place. Can we re-install by simply tacking it on top of the current vinyl? The pattern is so retro it's chic! It is not in tile form, but appears to be in one complete piece, approximately 16' x 20'. Is it possible that 1920 linoleum has asbestos?
Anxious to hear... Jean
