This knowledge is useful if you are planning any major interior renovations that will require opening up a space or moving a wall. You will be able to estimate the difficulty of the job and get a rough estimate of the costs involved. You will also be in a position to evaluate the construction as it progresses and be certain that the builders are maintaining the structural integrity of your house. —Chicago TribuneSo, take the time to schedule a local junk hauling remodeling removal disposal for you.

Santa Ana Partition Wall Removal and DisposalOnce you are sure that it is not a load-bearing wall, then you can take it down with a few steps. Here’s an overview of how to do partition wall removal:
- Clear and cover the area. Empty the room on either side of the wall. Then, cover the area with tarps or drop cloths to minimize the mess. Additionally, try to keep the area free of children and pets, especially when you’re actually taking down the wall.
- Turn off the power. Partition walls can serve more than one purpose. Although their main function is to divide and define a space, these can also be a handy place for electrical outlets. If there are any of these present, you’ll have to shut off power to them on the main electrical panel and remove the wiring.
- Remove the trim. Pull the trim off the wall and place it out of the way. You can do this with a pry bar or claw hammer. When you do, take the time to remove the nails and place them in a container as an extra safety precaution.
- Tear down the partition wall. Wear a dusk mask and eye protection. Also, put on boots and heavy gloves. Then, use a sledgehammer to knock down the wall. Look inside to see if there are any other systems hidden away. If not, you can just demolish the wall with a sledge and pry bar.
