Why It is Extremely Important To Remove Water Damaged Walls and Insulation
by TrashitMan

After a house is damaged with water from flood, rain, leaks or hurricane, the walls must be dried out immediately or you could loose the whole home. After Hurricane Sandy hit New York recently many homes suffered moderate to severe water damage. But even those houses which only had a few inches of water in them could be destroyed if mold sets in.

If your house suffers water damage, the wet drywall and insulation must be taken out as soon as possible. The sooner you get the wet insulation removed and let the wooden frame dry out, the better.

Mold and water damaged walls

In the photo above you can see one of our workers measuring the flood levels after Hurricane Sandy passed through New York recently. This was taken just two weeks after the Hurricane and mold damage had already begun to set in. You can see the mold in the photo, especially on the left inside the shelves.

Water soaked insulation

After the hurricane flooded many homes in New York including Belle Harbour, Breezy Point, Howard Beach and Lindenwood, demolition teams such as The Trash it Man were called in to remove flood and mold damaged drywall and insulation before the mold was able to spread. In the photo above you can see that the mold has already set in behind the sheetrock and the wood framing of the house is soaking wet. The insulation acts like a sponge and holds water for a very long time. There is nowhere for the water to go unless the insulation is removed and the wooden framework exposed to dry.

Water damaged wet wood after hurricane

Mold spores are everywhere. You would think that behind sealed walls there could be no mold growth, but when the house was put together, mold spores were in the air and got trapped inside, just waiting for the perfect time, such as this, to grow and feed on the wood. Refer to the photo above. This is only two weeks after the flood waters receeded and the mold has spread to the wooden frame behind the drywall of this home. Any longer and the damage would have been too extensive to save the home.

Mold rising up walls after flood

Above you can see how the mold is growing up the wall. Drywall will slowly absorb moisture from the insulation that is trapped inside it. The insulation will hold water for months. The sheetrock wicks this moisture out and into the walls. As the water level climbs, so does the mold. Sadly this wall had to be cut even higher than originally due to the spread of mold.

If you are ever in need of interior demolition due to water damage, DO NOT WAIT!

Hurricane Sandy Water and Flood Damaged Sheetrock Removal and Interior Demolition
by TrashitMan

Recently the East Coast suffered a lot of damage due to Hurricane Sandy. Many homes have some water damage from the high flood waters. If your home had high water levels, then you need to get the damaged and wet sheetrock removed before mold and rot sets in. Water damaged drywall holds water for a very long time. Drywall also deteriorates after being submerged in water. The moisture that is held in the sheetrock will be slowly released back into your home, causing health hazards and mold buildup.

If your home had some water damage then you need to act fast in order to prevent widespread damage to your home and possessions. Call the Trashitman for help at 718-326-6969 to remove wet drywall from your home immediately.

In the photo below you can see a home that was damaged in the flood waters. The moisture in the walls is slowly being released into the air. This is condensing on the window. This moisture will get into your furniture, clothing, ceiling and electronics if not taken care of promptly. Within days mold and mildew will set in.

Condensation showing in the windows of a water damaged house

In the photo below you can see some water damaged drywall that has begun to mold. The water level is shown by the ruler sitting against the wall. You can see that mold has begun to spread upward into the wall. Drywall can transfer water up through the wall, causing even more extensive damage if not removed quickly.

The Trash it Man team is here to help. Call us to quickly remove any flood damaged sheetrock asap. If you live in Queens, Brooklyn or Manhattan, New York, then call us for a free quote.

Below you can see one of our guys measuring and marking out water damaged interior walls in a home. In some cases, if you act quickly, only the portion of the drywall that was water damaged must be cut away, saving you money on repairs.

Preparing To Remove Water Damaged Sheetrock

In the photo below you can see our team removing the flood damaged sheetrock in order to expose the wood frame underneath to air so it can dry out. Doing this in a timely manner is very important before mold and mildew attacks the frame of your home.

Wooden Porch Pulling Away From House

In the above photo you can see an old wooden porch pulling away from the house. See the gap just under the roof.  It has separated and is slowly falling away. Eventually, if left alone, this porch would collapse onto the ground, two stories below. This is a danger to anyone nearby and to the house on the ground floor. Below you can see Nick, the owner, looking over the job after the roof of the porch has been removed. The Dimola Bros truck is in the foreground. We have our own professionally trained team and equipment. We have our own trucks and are able to remove all rubbish and demolition debris after demolition of the old porch.

Let’s face it, time is money. You can have your office personnel help dismantle the cubicles and furniture and empty the contents of the office for you – while loosing important work hours. With untrained, and often unmotivated workers the job of moving out of your office space can take days or even weeks to finish. Ever move to a new apartment or home? Remember how much work it was? Often you start packing boxes months in advance in order to be ready for that big move in a single day. And usually something goes wrong or it just takes much longer than you had planned and you come back another day to finish it up.

Experience is important when you need the contents of your office removed fast.


Filing cabinets, shelving units and closets removed. The storage units and filing cabinets in your office can be so large and ungainly, it is quite a task to remove. Sometimes they even need to be cut down to even fit out of the office doors. Many times through the years a building goes through renovations. Often large items that fit when they were moved in no longer fit through the doors. Door way frames and the doors themselves get changed out with smaller ones. In this case, our training comes in handy. You do not even need to worry about removal of the contents of the filing cabinets. Old files can be properly and safely disposed of. We can handle the professional shredding and removal of your old files and forms.

How to demolish a kitchen in a luxury townhouse without damage to the home
by TrashitMan

The Trash it Man team was recently called out on an interior demolition job in Manhattan, New York. This was a luxury apartment in a hi-rise building in downtown Manhattan. Doing an interior demolition in an expensive home can be troublesome and needs some special care. You must be careful of all the dust and debris that will be generated and everything must be carted out with care. The work site needs to remain clean at all times in order to limit debris from being spread around the rest of the home.

The following lines and photos will show you how a professional, trained team handles the job.

First, we lay out floor protection all the way through the home. This includes not only the room being demolished, but also every entrance from the room and the floor through the whole apartment. We also had to lay out floor protection through the hallways of the building to protect the fine carpets from debris and dirt.

The next step is to set up all necessary equipment and get prepared for the actual demolition job. Containers to cart out the rubbish, tools and, of course, brooms and dust pans to clean up the waste during the demolition.

Now the interior demolition job can begin. This job was an interior kitchen demolition in a very high end apartment. Everything had to be ripped out of the kitchen. All the appliances, stove top, oven, dish washer, refrigerator, garbage disposer and microwave all went out the door. The cabinets, sink and counter tops all got ripped out. The tiled floor as well, had to be removed. There were two layers of tile floor in this place that had to be removed.

The following images will show a bit of the work as it progressed.

In the above image, we see all the kitchen cabinet doors were carefully removed. We had to be very careful not to damage the walls or windows as we worked.

The above image shows the guys removing the overhead kitchen cabinets. You can see the refrigerator has already been pulled out of its space, ready to remove from the home.

Removal of counter tops and stone wall tiles

Removal of counter tops and stone wall tiles

Above you can see the removal of kitchen counter tops and the removal of the stone wall tiles. These were very heavy pieces of stone and had to be broken up to remove them from the kitchen carefully. The stone wall tiles had to be removed one by one from the wall. Many had electrical cover plates attached to them, which had to be removed first. Don’t forget to shut off the electricity first.

Removal of sink and dishwasher

Removal of sink and dishwasher

Above you can see we have begun the removal of the kitchen sink and the under sink cabinets. Also the dish washer has been pulled out so that we can start disassembly of the wiring. The sink was heavy cast iron and the counter top was a solid, very heavy piece of stone. It all came out in pieces. The under sink cabinets all came out piece by piece. The whole job was done carefully in order to prevent flying debris taking out a window.

Careful removal of waste and debris from demo site

We very carefully take every piece of the rubbish out of the kitchen demo site and place them into a large container in order to be removed. Notice the expensive items around our worker. We must take great care not to damage anything. We place the items one by one into the container.

So, now all the kitchen appliances, cabinets and fixtures have been removed. Next we sweep the floor and remove all debris from the demolition site. All the waste material goes out into our truck which waits outside.

The garbage truck has a lift on it, which makes the job so much easier. Each of the containers, when it is filled up, goes into the truck to be emptied and brought back into the demolition job site.
