I intentionally didn't mention the possibility of the asbestos presence in the old adhesive but now that it has been brought up I'll also mention that asbestos in that particular product isn't usually a concern. It is only when asbestos becomes air-born that health issues could result and even then adverse situations would be arguable.

Those products should not be sanded or vacuumed without a HEPA filter and in most states where property owners are allowed to remove their own asbestos flooring products it is recommended that the floor be kept wet during scraping and the residue be deposited in plastic trash bags and closed tightly before going into the trash.
