We have Armstrong linoleum in our MB that is ripping near the door. It is circa 1971 (as the newspapers laid underneath suggest). There is also a layer of some type of paper underneath that is not glued to the linoleum. Is this the usual format of asbestos material?

It may be, but its highly unlikely that it is going to be any real problem. The asbestos particals (if there are any) must become airbourne to pose any threat. Don't sand it and you'll be ok. Now remember it is not like asbestos insulation and not near as likely to become airbourne. If you choose to remove it, check your local codes, keep it soaked with water and properly dispose.

You can chip out a piece of material and try to burn it. Asbestos doesn't burn out, unlike other materials. Thought to make sure you should send a sample to laboratory.
