Using our own fleet of heavy equipment, Iowa Demolition self-performs all aspects of both interior and structural demolition, with a unique ability to bundle complete abatement, demolition, and earthwork services. As an ESA company, Iowa Demolition is capable of bonding, financing, and manning any project, small or large. In 2016, we were awarded the National Demolition award of Environmental Excellence.

Soil Remediation

Iowa Demolition is the leader in Contaminated Soil Remediation. Over the past few years, we have removed millions of yards of asbestos, petroleum, lead and coal ash impacted soil. As regulations have become more stringent, environmental and demolition projects often have a soil cleanup component. In our effort to offer turnkey services to our clients, soil remediation has become one of our central offerings. Clients prefer our unique ability to deliver all of their environmental and demolition solutions under one umbrella.

“We have worked with other contractors in the past and none of them have completed a job as professionaly and efficiently as ESA.”
Leann Weiss, Frenchman Valley Farmer’s COOP


Water Remediation

Iowa Demolition water remediation services include pumping, fracking, hauling, and disposal of contaminated water. We also have the ability to dewater, pump, and treat contaminated materials on site.

“ESA’s team has not only shown an ability to be cost competitive, they have safely performed large-scale demolition, abatement and remediation, often with an aggressive schedule.”
Gregory A. Holt, City & County of Denver


Hydro Blasting

Iowa Demolition performs ultra-high pressure hydro-blasting, or “SpinJet,” coating removal using an emission-free system that leaves a clean, dry surface. Our self-contained Vac–loader unit removes debris completely with up to 40,000 psi — and the only waste it generates is the removed coating and residual filtered water that can safely be disposed of. Hydro-blasting can be used on all coatings, including those containing lead, asbestos and other hazardous materials.

Catastrophic Clean Up & Debris Removal

Iowa Demolition has significant experience with large-scale clean-up and debris removal following catastrophic events such as hurricanes, train derailments, floods, tornadoes, and chemical plant explosions. We deploy quickly and professionally to help clients respond to the challenges of a disaster with a well-designed and carefully implemented response plan.

“ESA has always been responsive whether responding to a large multi-million dollar project requiring asbestos abatement and building demolition or a cost estimate only requiring a few hours.”
