Selective demolition is the process of removing unwanted elements of a property without damaging or disturbing adjacent elements that are to remain.
In short, “Demolition” is less labor intensive than deconstruction, and often encompasses the use of mechanic, electrical, and hydraulic tools and machines. “Deconstruction” is done mostly by hand and is usually very labor-intensive with job site conditions that limit or exclude the use of machines. The final result of deconstruction is still a demolished area, material, finish, or structure. “Salvage” is similar to deconstruction but the work is performed in such a way as to allow for reuse or reinstallation of removed materials.
Asbestos is an insulating material used on pipes, ceiling, as fireproofing, floor tiles and numerous other construction materials. Overexposure to asbestos has known and seriously negative impact on one’s health. The safe removal of A.C.M. (Asbestos Containing Materials) is called Abatement and is an important part of a safe demolition job.
Friable asbestos can be crushed or pulverized by hand and easily becomes airborne, this is the more dangerous form of asbestos by far. Non-Friable asbestos containing materials do not easily crush, pulverize, or become airborne. Depending on location removing non-friable a.c.m. could be both easier and less expensive to remove and dispose of than its friable counterpart.

Floor covering is the material used to cover a structure subfloor these include: carpet, linoleum, tongue and grove, wood floors, VCT, LVT, Ceramic tile, etc.
Flooring adhesive is the substance used to attach your chosen floor covering to your subfloor. This could be glue, thin set, a mud bed, or staples for carpet with pad. When floor covering is removed these substances can remain sticky or provide an unworkable surface for the reinstallation of new floor covering. This can be removed using grinders and hepa sealed vacuums.
