When it comes to demolition services, there are quite a few different misconceptions, or myths, that seem to surround the industry, however, most of them aren’t true. Take these four common misconceptions associated with demolition services and see why they’re more myth than truth.
#1 There is No Organization
As fun as it would be to simply grab a sledgehammer and start smashing, that is not how demolition services are provided. There is a lot of science that goes into a demo, from checking for water lines, electrical components, etc. there is a lot of organization and prep work that is done prior to the actual demolition itself. The key to a good demo is an even better plan, so organization is arguably the most important aspect of any job.
#2 They Make and Leave a Mess
Many people work hard to keep their home clean and organized and thus the idea of someone coming inside to make a giant mess is often a tough pill to swallow, however, while there may be a moment of messiness, contrary to common belief, demolition professionals are quite tidy and will make sure that debris isn’t left behind, cleaning up meticulously after the job is complete.
#3 My Home will be Damaged
With the idea of swinging sledgehammers and tearing down unwanted elements in your home, naturally, you may be worried that your home will be damaged in the process. Much like the misconception of their being little to no organization, the reason that demolition professionals take the time to plan out your demo, is to ensure that they can complete the job safely and effectively, ensuring that there is no damage to the surrounding areas of your home. While damage of any kind is not a common issue, it is also important that you only hire a licensed company, as unlicensed companies cannot provide the insurance requirements needed should an accident or damage of any kind occur.
#4 Demolition Services are Wasteful
Surprisingly, most demolition services now a days are considered “green demolitions.” A common misconception is that all the materials from the demo will be hauled away and tossed into a landfill, however, this isn’t the case. Many materials are either salvaged or used for other projects, sold to other contractors, meticulously recycled, etc. with a landfill being the last option, and the option that generally receives the least materials.
It is also important to remember that demolition services range drastically and can be provided for both residential as well as commercial needs. Whether a small job such as removing an old countertop for a small bathroom remodel, or a full kitchen tear town, with the right demo team your home or workplace will be prepped and ready for the next phase of your project.
