- We have a commercial building that we had inspected for asbestos last week, the report says that we have about 1,000 SF of floor tile and mastic that contains asbestos. We have hired an asbestos abatement contractor to remove the floor tile but leave the mastic as we are going to just overlay with new carpet. Do we need to file a NESHAP permit? A: No, as long as your abatement contractor is doing all the floor tile abatement by hand, utilizing NON-MECHANICAL methods.
