Domestic Asbestos Removal

Between the 1940s and 1980s, asbestos was unfortunately a common building material in homes all over Victoria and it’s estimated that one in three Australian homes contain asbestos. Finding asbestos in your home can obviously be quite scary, but the important thing is not to handle it yourself. Call a Worksafe-qualified removalist, like GMA, to come and dispose of asbestos safely. We can liaise with Worksafe and the EPA, transport asbestos to landfill, and provide a Waste Transport Certificate, for added peace of mind. 

We are here to help

GMA has carried out safe asbestos disposal all over VIC, NSW & QLD. We’ve got a 24-hour call-out service, so we’re available any time, and our shiny fleet of trucks, excavators, vacuums and forklifts are all OHS-approved.

Trust us, we’ve seen it all: asbestos in roofs, walls and cladding, asbestos-contaminated soil, silica dust, bad boiler flues. Whatever the problem, we can whip up a quote within 24-hours, and we’ll beat any competitor’s price by 10%.

Silica Dust

Open Letter from GMA

You don’t need to be in the trade to know the dangers of dealing with Asbestos. Thanks to years of public awareness campaigns, the dangers of Asbestos are both well-known and understood by the general public.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Silica Dust.

We have penned an open letter explaining in more detail the dangers of Silica Dust and encourage you to take the time to educate yourself.

Domestic Demolition

GMA is an asbestos removalist service, fully qualified to handle domestic demolition jobs, which is often when friable asbestos removal becomes a big problem. Asbestos fibres break up and disperse into the air, where they can be inhaled by your family, your neighbours, or anyone working on your property. If you’re planning a demolition job, and the house was built prior to 1987, make sure you call us first.

Silica Dust Removal

People working around silica dust have an increased risk of lung disease. It usually becomes airborne when crushing or cutting stone, bricks, tiles or concrete. We can recommend silica dust safety precautions and help with any large-scale dust removal.

Lead-Contaminated Dust Removal

Lead exposure can have serious long-term health consequences, and studies have shown that 70% of lead dust may be absorbed by the body. GMA is licensed to dispose of commercial lead-contaminated dust.

Hazardous Material Removal

We can help remove most common hazardous materials from build sites. These include lead paint, Synthetic Mineral Fibres, PCB materials and contaminated soil (Category A, B and C).

Asbestos Contaminated Soil Removal

Contaminated soil can be found throughout Melbourne, Ballarat, Geelong, western and northern Victoria. We recommend asbestos testing to identify any bonded or friable asbestos in your soil.

Asbestos Waste Collection

GMA supplies its own skips, bins and trucks for asbestos collection. We’re licensed for the removal of Class-A and Class-B asbestos, and all waste goes straight into EPA-approved landfill.
