Asbestos in mobile home vinyl + ceilings ?

Post by dodgeetruckk » Fri Sep 13, 2019 8:35 pm

Does anyone know what year they stopped putting asbestos vinyl flooring and ceilings in mobile homes ? I only ask because a family member and me have been working on a 1973-74 mobile home. He tore down all the ceilings which looked to be some sort of fiberboard. The other day we peeled and scraped up the vinyl flooring in the kitchen and it left behind a lot of the grayish fiber backing. He assured me there was no asbestos in this trailer but I'm second guessing his experience. We were only wearing dust masks while doing this.
