If you’re considering a major renovation to your old home, or undertaking a complete knockdown rebuild, you will want to consider any asbestos or asbestos contaminated area very carefully. While the legal handling and removal of asbestos does present significant extra costs to your project, any attempt to move or dispose of asbestos and asbestos contaminated materials illegally will see NSW dumpers hit with massively increased fines after changes recently made to NSW government laws.
Recently in Sydney suburbs such as Ryde, Gladesville, Denistone, Eastwood and surrounding areas, Home Demolitions has found some wildlife lurking in places that often get overlooked. Be it possums, snakes or even bats, we strive to make sure wildlife gets a chance to leave before demolition begins. In the event the wildlife doesn’t leave, we always contact the appropriate wildlife services so animals can be safely removed.
The USA’s EPA has recently enacted the Significant New Use Rule. This rule allows the government to evaluate asbestos use on a case by case basis. Unfortunately the new rule does not include the evaluation of exposure to asbestos in the air, ground or water. Asbestos has never been banned in the USA, however, it is tightly controlled.
When demolishing a home often many household items are found left behind. This can be due to many factors be it renters leaving things behind, home owners looking to leave behind old items and start over, items being over looked or even items that are hidden away in cavities such as roofs, under houses or sometimes buried.
Not to be confused with the 1993 Snipes vs Stallone dystopian blockbuster Demolition Man, this recent drama film is about a man that loses a loved one which results in the entirety of his life being questioned. Dealing with complex thoughts and emotions, Gyllenhaal the main character finds solace in dismantling various items around his home which eventually leads to demolishing the whole house.
The movie itself scores a 7/10 on IMDB and even won a couple of small film festival awards. Although saddened that this film doesn't focus on the Demolition aspect of things "we would have loved to have seen a 20 tonne excavator become a plot twisting love interest" it may be worth a watch if you're a fan of Jake Gyllenhaal or director Jean-Marc Vallée "notable for directing some film called Loser Love?"
