Mist the tiles with a little water from a spray bottle to keep the
asbestos from becoming airborne, and you should be fine. Just put any
debris, and the wet rag you wipe everything down with afterward, in a
plastic bag and put it in the household garbage.
Those tiles are no where near 40 or 50 years old. There's no worry
about asbestos. Any time you are going to be creating dust just stick
a fan in a window and have it blow out. Block off the rest of the
window. That will suck the dust out of the room and keep it from
spreading all over the house.
Those tiles are available and there's not much to working with them.
Here's a link to new installation:
You can break out the tile to be replaced carefully as already noted,
then cut off the tongues or the backside of the grooves on the
replacement tile as required, then use adhesive and white panel nails
to install the new tile. A little joint compound works to hide dings
in the tile.
