Watch Those Load Bearing Walls
One of the first things that you need to do when you’re deis determinedwall is determine whether it is loadbearing or not. Experts suggest that if you need to remove one of these that generally run towards the center of the house, you should have something in its place.

Cover the Floor
One of the other things that you need to do before you demolish a wall is cover the floor. We suggest you use a large piece of cardboard or quarter inch plywood. The idea is to protect the finish. There is going to be a fair amount of dust so you might want to use a drop cloth on the rest of the room.
Work in Steps

It’s also the best way to proceed for wall demolitions. If you start by making a hole in the center of the drywall, you can pull out a piece to expose studs or any piping or electrical work you want to leave in place.
If you’ve decided to take the entire wall out, you’ll need a reciprocating saw for the studs. Remember that we always have your back with our Junk King Monterey – Junk Removal services.
