The Process Of House Demolition

“House is the starting place of hope, love, and dreams”. Our home or house is the place where we all share our thoughts, joy and sorrow and lead a protected life. We always try to protect and maintain our house properly, so that in return it can protect us even better. But sometimes we must opt for house demolition for a variety of reasons, both positive and negative.

Reasons for house demolition:

  • If the house is declared unsafe by the government, it is demolished.
  • Sometimes the cost of repairing a house exceeds the value of the property. Under such circumstances, the owner may decide to rebuild the house or sell the property after demolition.
  • If you intend to remodel your house completely or dream to build a custom home, demolition is the only option.
  • Sometime neglected houses become infested with worms, insects, rodents and other forms of dangerous animals. The only solution to such a problem is house demolition.
There are several other reasons for demolishing a house. It is always heartbreaking to see our home being demolished, but if it is for a positive cause, we must take the right decision.

5 processes of house demolition:

  • Mechanical demolition: In this process, the house is simply demolished using hydraulic excavators and other machinery. This is a very common and easy method of house demolition. 
  • Deconstruction: This process is also known as ‘demolition by hand'. Here the demolition is done by hand to retrieve some of the household items. 70% of the building materials can be recycled or reused. The cons of this process are it takes more time and labor and the expenses are also more.
  • Deconstruction Demolition: This process of house demolition is very popular as it is both costs effective and timesaving. It involves the deconstruction of the house first to retrieve household items and then the house is fully demolished. The debris is hauled away.

Preventive measures to be taken while demolishing a house:

  • Removal of asbestos: All licensed and non-licensed asbestos must be removed before beginning any house demolition.
  • Protective gear to be worn: All workers should wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during demolition work. This includes hard hat, safety gloves, high visibility jacket, and steel toe cap boots. The safety of the workers is of prime importance.
  • Ensure environmental safety: House demolition creates a lot of noise, dust, and vibration which can be detrimental to the health of the environment including living beings. They must be minimized and monitored.
  • Prevent accidents: The demolition work for house renovation must be completely safe. To ensure 100% safety experienced supervisors and trained workers is a must.
  • Be cautious while handling heavy machinery: The demolition site is full of heavy machinery and sharp equipment. It can be dangerous. Proper rules should be followed while demolishing a house as there are other houses too in the neighborhood and their safety is also essential factor.
  • Maintain a clean and tidy site: Proper measures should be taken to maintain cleanliness while demolishing a house. A clean site also ensures the chances of fewer accidents. Other people of the neighborhood might object if the place is not cleaned properly as it becomes hazardous.
  • Traffic management: If the house to be demolished is on a busy road, traffic management is of vital importance. Pedestrians and vehicles should be cautioned about the ongoing demolition work so that no serious accidents or injuries occur.
