Any work involving material that contains asbestos should only be done by a professional trained in methods for safely handling this material. Asbestos professionals can conduct home inspections and advise you about what is needed in your situation. Covering your tile may well be the best solution, but that depends on the condition of your existing flooring, which is why it is so important to have a professional evaluation.
