Thinking of removing asbestos yourself . . . you might want to think again! Fine asbestos fibers settle very slowly. According to Pinchin Environmental it could take up to four hours in completely still air for fibers to fall 9 feet. If the air is disturbed the fibers may not settle or they could be re-introduced into air currents once it has. Metro takes every precaution and uses proper techniques and equipment to ensure this doesn't happen. Asbestos particles can cause respiratory illnesses such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Together with years of experience, training by the best Environmental Authorities and strict adherence to Government Regulations you can be rest assured that the removal of this hazardous substance is done safely!

Metro asbestos removal team works closely with Senior Environmental Specialists, Occupational Health & Safety, and Certified Industrial Hygienists when in need for designated substance reports, clearance certificates or air testing on commercial or industrial projects.
We offer both air sampling and bulk (sample taken from tiles, pipes, vermiculite etc) sampling analysis.
It’s important to consider the following when requesting an air sample:
PCM testing is the most affordable - This testing is required by Government regulations after a type 3 removal. This test will determine the amount of fibers in the air. It does not however tell if there are asbestos fibers present.
TEM testing is very expensive but will detect the presence of asbestos fibers.
