At Nielsen Environmental, we want our clients to know exactly what they can expect when they choose our home demolition services in LA.
What is the process of demolishing a house?
Reviewing Your Demolition Needs
When it comes to a house demolition, or any kind of demolition for that matter, there will be a number of factors to consider. Before a demolition can begin, Nielsen Environmental must assess the site and your needs so we may develop a custom plan that works.
Developing the Plan
Once everything has been assessed, the demolition company will create an in depth plan. This will include how the demolition will be carried out, and what equipment may be used. The objective will be to complete the demolition as safely as possible, and within the budget. These discretions could reflect of various factors including the location and size of the building, materials that make up the building, whether or not asbestos is in the building, and the reason for the demolition. Depending on these things, the demolition company may choose a method such as:
- Selective demolition
- + More
Once this plan is in place, the demolition company may discuss with you the cost, equipment to be used, clean up, recycling, and the timeframe. A backup plan might also be developed just in case something goes wrong.
If you or the demolition company believes there to be any type of hazardous waste/material in the building, you may need to have it inspected before the demolition process goes any further. Should these materials be confirmed, there may be a completely separate process involved in their safe removal. At Nielsen Environmental, we’re experienced with handling hazardous materials like asbestos and lead.
In general, you cannot demolish any building without getting a permit. This is because in doing so the landscape could be changed, and the Los Angeles property value and taxes could be affected. A demolition company will likely organize the permits with your local government.
Preparing the Demolition Site
Before the demolition can begin, the site must be prepared. This could include cleaning out the building, turning off all the utilities, stripping out any gas and water tanks, and removing hazardous or recyclable materials.
The Demolition Begins
Once everything has been carefully planned, the demolition will be scheduled and carried out. This can take anywhere from one to several days depending on the type of demolition. Once the demolition has been completed, the company will remove all the debris from the site. Typically this means "down to the dirt."
