As home inspectors in NJ we see asbestos tiles on inspections in older homes. They were popular in the 40′s, 50′s and 60′s. These tiles are considered safe when they are not damaged.
Asbestos must be inhaled or injested in order to pose a health risk. If we find asbestos tiles on an inspection we will recommend the tiles be either removed or more preferably covered.
