Demolition Services Safety issues must come first: As in most industries, safety must be the first consideration in residential demolition. Kelly Klean Demolition service always strives to ensure the well-being of its crew, your neighbors family, and friends. Property inspections are one way of ensuring safety on each project. In performing any project, our teams go the extra mile to make sure your family, neighbors, and our staff remains safe. Before we tear down buildings, old sheds, barns, or other structures we closely inspect your property and the building to be destroyed. Then we draft a plan of procedures that includes safety factors. We look for hazards like electric lines, water pipes, cable, or phone lines that have not been disconnected or anything else that could compromise the safe, smooth completion of your project. Using the appropriate equipment on each job is another way we train people in safety. For example, if you want a small chicken coop demolished, we use a Bobcat to tear down the structure then utilize human labor to clear away the debris. Smaller equipment is better for the ground surrounding the structure. A wrecking ball would be too unwieldy and increase the risk of damage the surrounding landscape or structure. On the other hand a Bobcat might slow down progress on a larger structure where a larger tractor would be better suited. Since residential demolition deals with tearing down structures where people live, Kelly Klean makes safety a priority, especially around rural areas. We don’t want our equipment damaging important infrastructure like septic tanks or sewage lines, other houses, or people.

We have more than 30 years of experience, and are proud to be one of the best-known demolition contractors in the Mid-Missouri area. Why are residential demolition contractors needed? For one thing, property owners may be seeking to demolish an old home and build a newer one in its place. The professionals at Kelly Klean Demolition Services don’t just bring in a fleet of bulldozers, tear down the existing structure then leave it. First, we must make sure all electric and plumbing lines are taken care of. Then after the structure is torn down, all the debris is a carried away for proper disposal. The age and general condition of the building can also determine the need to contract a trained demolition service to come out and look at your property. For example, old unoccupied buildings can become the homes and breeding ground for snakes, rats, skunks or other vermin. A town might need an old house or structure demolished because it has become unsightly, or even a health hazard. In any circumstance, Kelly Klean Demolition will make sure all debris from the demolished structure is safely cleared from the property including old buried water lines, electric cables, sewage pipes, and anything else that might impede any new construction planned for that land. We use the equipment that best fits the need: Kelly Klean Demolition takes safety very seriously in all of its residential demolition services. We always prefer using the simplest and safest procedures necessary to get a job done – sometimes that entails heavy machinery, other times sweat and a good pry-bar are enough. The large heavy wrecking balls are seldom needed or used as most structures in a residential area are not large enough to warrant the usage of such heavy equipment that is normally utilized for larger commercial or industrial projects. Mechanical demolition involving cranes, Bobcats, Rams, or excavators may be needed for larger outbuildings, newer model homes made of brick or other very solid structures. However, with smaller older structures and wood-frame buildings, many of these can be torn apart manually – taking it apart board by board using hammers and crowbars. For a safe and efficient demolition and clean-up, call Kelly Klean Demolition at (573) 214-0990. “Undermining” structures can be an effective means of demolition: This kind of demolition is the least favored and is only used for very large structures on residential property. The demolition itself is fast, but the preparation and clean-up are much slower than by other methods. Preparation work in setting the explosives requires very careful planning. In addition, the clean-up time usually requires more time than the planning, also due to extra safety precautions. The term “undermining” means “to erode the base or foundation.” In residential demolition, this involves removing the foundational component (usually concrete) with a controlled implosion, thus collapsing the structure by its own weight. Many people find it fun to watch a controlled scenario which involves a slight vibration underground then seeing a building fall down. Controlled implosions in a residential setting do involve extreme safety precautions. The procedure by its very nature is hazardous, but very safe when handled by experts in the field. Kelly Klean Demolition utilizes trained and experienced professionals. They utilize protective wraps for the exterior of the structure to inhibit widespread damage from flying debris. Also, heavy noise dampeners are utilized to cut down on the sound. A series of controlled explosions – expertly timed – are set off, causing the structure to inward, safely away from the surrounding area. If you have a large structure on your property that you want to get rid of, call Kelly Klean Demolition at (573) 214-0990. We also offer “Green” deconstruction: The method known as deconstruction is believed to be one of the most environmentally friendly (Green) method for demolishing undesirable structures. Kelly Klean Demolition uses this method for some residential buildings, fences, and outer structures. This method is time consuming but is often preferred because it reuses much of the material taken from the original structure instead of throwing them away. For instance, wood components are taken from one house very carefully so that the boards can be reused for building something else.
