Follow asbestos requirements before demolition begins.
If you’re demolishing a home or structure in Iowa that may contain hazardous materials, an asbestos inspection is required. The inspection can’t be done by just anyone either—it must be conducted by a State of Iowa licensed asbestos building inspector in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.
Any asbestos-containing materials must be identified, classified, and quantified prior to demolition.

Find the right contractor—one who’s licensed in the State of Iowa.
In order to be able to perform demolition, a contractor should maintain the proper licensing.
When looking for the right contractor, double check that they have the proper up-to-date licensing for the state of Iowa. Another great way to cover your bases is by visiting Hometown Demolition Contractors. There, you can read company profiles, customer reviews, and request quotes directly—all from one place.
Don’t forget the dust and debris.
It’s easy for customers to forget about what happens after the demolition is all said and done. But once the structure’s fallen, there will be quite a bit of mess left over. In some cases, your contractor will include the price of hauling and disposal in the quote. However, if they don’t handle the disposal process for you, a great way to maintain the mess is with the help of a dumpster.
Dumpsters are a convenient way to have large amounts of debris hauled off in one fell swoop and is much easier than making multiple trips to haul the debris yourself.
