While that may happen, there are other strategies that may be used when taking down a structure. Demolition is way more than simply hitting walls with large machinery until things break into small pieces. Demolition is actually a strictly regulated industry, and the process can be dangerous.

Demolitions that entail implosion may seem dramatic and exciting, but our professionals have taken careful consideration when placing explosives that result in the safest collapse possible. Implosion is most often used to destroy large structures in urban areas. When performed correctly, the implosion should not scatter materials past the perimeter of the original building outline, and does not impact nearby properties. The timing and placement of explosives is key is causing the building to collapse straight down instead of outwards or sideways.
#2 Wrecking Ball
The wrecking ball method is when a crane and ball is swung into the sides or on top of a building to demolish it. The wrecking ball method is popular, but has potential drawbacks. Tragedy can occur if the crane operator is not trained and experienced, as the force of the wrecking ball can tip the crane over entirely. So that is why it is vital that you seek professional help by contacting us about imploding services in Los Angeles. Also, this method cannot be used just anywhere. If the structure site is too large for the wrecking ball to reach everything or is too close to electrical lines, it may not be safe or successful.
#3 Selective Demolition
Many building contractors appeal to the idea of selective demolition, so they can help conserve resources while benefiting the planet. Selective demolition is a strategy that entails slowly taking apart the building and recycling or reusing materials like brick, wood, metal, and concrete. This process is done by hand, and takes much longer than other methods. However, this technique practices environmental stewardship, and builders can save money through reusing or recycling the old building material.
#4 High Reach Arm
A taller building may require certain machinery to effectively to pull the building down by section. With high arm demolition, a long arm is connected to an excavator and used to tear off parts of the building at a time. Our professionals who offer imploding services in CA at Nielsen Environmental can then break those pieces even smaller, until they can be properly moved and discarded. High reach arm demolition can be a more safe approach, as it involves much less dust and free flying debris. High reach arm is used most commonly for buildings that are excessively tall (usually over 20 meters in height). If the building is shorter than this, then a wrecking ball or other strategies will probably work successfully.
