But some homeowners might have a few questions about what sets a commercial demolition and clean out, apart from a residential demolition and clean out.

Commercial Demolition Services vs. Residential Demolition Services

Residential demolition services are applied to single-family homes however, larger multi-unit living spaces can also be considered residential. But commercial demolition services are only applied to large, warehouse-like structures used for retail or office space.

Commercial and residential demolition projects differ not only in the equipment used, but also throughout the overall process. Commercial demolition projects are larger-scale projects that require heavier machinery--significantly larger than equipment that would be used for a residential project--because if the building is too large to take down with ordinary demolition equipment, then explosives might be required.

Residential demolition services require more care and precision--especially if you don't want to disturb the neighbors...too much. After the structure is taken down and the debris is hauled off, the space where the home used to occupy, might need the terrain evened out if the demolition project leaves the ground uneven.

Sometimes, in terms of logistics and the general situation, residential and commercial demolition projects might require different points of contact. When it comes to residential demolition, the demolition company might need to stay in contact with the homeowner for project progress, consultations, and any other questions or comments, whereas commercial demolition projects might require contact with any other contractors involved in the demolition project, as a whole.

Both commercial and residential demolition services tear down old, unused structures. Once the old buildings are torn down and the rubble is cleared, space is made for a new structure to be built in the space of the old one. At the end of the day, the goal is always the same--and true professionals will be prepared to deal with any kind of demolition project you'll have to throw at them.
