painting floors

I have asbestos tiles in my home. As a temporary measure can I paint them? Thanks

Re: painting floors

As a temporary measure, you can just leave them alone. Asbestos isn't a problem until it becomes airborne. You can paint them if you want to, or just apply a coat of wax.

The problems arise when you remove them. This is definitely NOT a DIY project. The adhesives used to install the tile also may contain asbestos.
