I've starting to remove an older vinyl linoleum floor

Hello,

I've starting to remove the plywood board on which an old linoleum has been glued. The house is originally from 1870 and has had many owners and was remodeled a lot. I have no idea when that lino was installed.
I'm just realising that I'm might be disturbing abestos from the lino.
What I'm doing is lifting the plywood with a big lever and removings the panels with big pieces of lino attached to them. I'm not sanding,, or rubbing the lino.
Am I still making abestos flying all around?
I'm half way done, but do you think I should stop and call a professional to finish the job?
Thanks so much
Phil

should be safe, just mop it before pulling it up, keeping it wet to minimize any airbourne particals.
