As a homeowner, there’s nothing more exciting than a home renovation. But before you can start any renovation project, you need to take on the daunting task of interior demolition. Interior demolition can be a daunting task for even the most experienced DIYers or General Contractor. But with some basic knowledge and the right tools, you can get the job done safely and efficiently. Interior demolition involves the removal of walls, floors, ceilings, fixtures, and other interior structures. It’s important to know what you’re getting into when you take on an interior demolition project (we advise you give us a call) but if you must. Before you start, make sure you have the right safety gear and know the proper techniques to use. The first step in interior demolition is to remove any non-structural elements, such as furniture, carpets, and wall coverings. Once these items are out of the way, you can begin to remove the structural elements, like walls, floors, and ceilings.
Make sure to wear safety gear, like goggles and a dust mask, when doing any type of demolition work. Nail proof boots is a must!!! My first job a few year ago I got 4 nails in the foot within two days (ouch!!!) For walls, you can use a hammer or a pry bar to remove the drywall. You can also use a reciprocating saw to cut through any framing or studs. Make sure to always disconnect the power before doing any electrical work. When working on floors, you may need to use a crowbar or sledgehammer to remove any flooring, such as tile or hardwood. You may also need to use a circular saw to cut through any subflooring or joists. When removing ceilings, you should use a crowbar or pry bar to remove the ceiling material. You may also need to use a circular saw to cut through any joists or framing. Once you’ve removed all of the structural elements, you can start to clean up the debris.
Make sure to wear safety gear, like goggles and a dust mask, when cleaning up the debris.
