Apartment Stripout and Demolition Sydney

If you’re considering a renovation in your apartment, the first step is a comprehensive stripout. It goes without saying that to create a new home, you need to remove the existing one first! And an apartment stripout in Sydney must be done by the experts. There are too many stories of DIY stripouts that have resulted in incredibly expensive repair jobs… and this must be avoided at all costs!

An experienced stripout and demolition specialist will have the knowledge, the equipment, and the training to get the job done to the highest standard. At Sydney City Rubbish, we’re the best in the business when it comes to Sydney apartment stripouts. Below, we’ll take a closer look at what an apartment stripout is, and how we approach this kind of project.

What is an apartment stripout?

An apartment stripout involves removing the existing fittings and finishes of the dwelling, so that a renovation can commence. A stripout will vary in scope from project to project… some stripouts may involve just one room, such as the kitchen or bathroom. Other projects may consist of stripping out the entire apartment, right to the bare bones.

The scope of the stripout really depends on the extent of your renovation project. If you simply want to re-do your bathroom, then the stripout will consist of a single room. On the other hand, if you have bought a real project apartment and wish to renovate the entire dwelling, then a complete stripout, and even demolition, is on the cards.

What is the apartment stripout process?

The stripout process will vary from project to project. Each project schedule is determined by the needs of the client, and the apartment itself. Some stripouts may begin with the kitchen, while others might start with the bathroom. We’ll work with you to put together the most efficient and convenient schedule possible.

Kitchen and joinery stripout

Kitchen stripout in Sydney is a common requirement for many of our clients. In fact, the kitchen is one of the most renovated rooms in any house. Dismantling a kitchen involves removing all benches, fittings, fixtures and appliances. The latter usually includes the oven, dishwasher and any other additional appliances that might be present.

Kitchens, like bathrooms, require a professional touch. There are plenty of electrical components and plumbing that must be removed delicately. If this is done incorrectly, it can be very dangerous, as well as lead to expensive electrical or plumbing repairs. Obviously, this should always be avoided.

Kitchen joinery is another component that we remove on a regular basis. Cabinets, cupboards and storage units are an important part of every kitchen! But when it comes time to remove them, they can be a little awkward. We utilise our expertise to remove kitchen cabinets quickly and efficiently. And if they are still in good condition, we can remove them carefully so that you’re able to on-sell them.

Bathroom demolition

Sydney bathroom stripout is an oft-required service by a wide range of clients. Most of the time, it’s residential, including apartments. A bathroom demolition project must be done properly… without a good foundational stripout, you won’t be able to create the bathroom of your dreams!

Bathroom demolition will include removing all sinks, showers, and baths, along with all of the associated fixtures and finishes. We can quickly and effectively remove tiles, creating minimal mess. And if you’d like to reuse them at a later date, we can do our best to ensure they remain in excellent condition.

Wall removal

Removing walls is something that must be done by the experts. If a load bearing wall is removed in a DIY job, without the proper licensing, expertise and assessments, it could be absolutely disastrous. Load bearing walls are structurally important, meaning that if one were removed in the incorrect manner, the ceiling may collapse. In an apartment building, this is incredibly dangerous.

Even walls that are not load bearing must be removed by the experts. At Sydney City Rubbish, we have the right experience, the qualifications, and connections with building inspectors to ensure the job is always done right. We’ll always operate with the utmost care, ensuring no damage is done, and everyone is safe at all times.

Doors and windows

Doors and windows are another component of the home that is often removed during an apartment stripout project. Whether it’s to open up a space, or close off part of a room, we can do this efficiently and safely. If you would like to keep the doors and windows for future use, or simply move them to another part of your apartment, we can help with this also.

Furniture removal

At Sydney City Rubbish, dealing with old furniture and other junk is our bread and butter. Office cleanout and junk removal is one of our primary services, but our furniture removal abilities also extend to apartment stripouts! We can easily remove any old furniture that needs to go before a stripout. On top of that, we’ll make sure that wherever possible, these items are dealt with in a sustainable manner. That means repurposing or at worst, breaking down the items and recycling them.


Modern apartments come with a wide range of flooring options. Much of the time, we see tiles, carpet, timber laminate and in some cases, solid timber floors. A stripout may involve removing these floor finishes, which we can do efficiently and carefully. We’ll ensure that your base remains in perfect condition, ready for your new flooring finish.

Apartment demolition health and safety

At Sydney City Rubbish, health and safety is always our priority. Everyone deserves to get home to their family safely, so we take every measure to ensure a safe working environment. Our attentiveness means that not only are our workers safe at all times, you are too. This is exactly what every demolition contractor should be aiming to do.

Our health and safety measures include thorough training. Knowledge is a key component in identifying hazards and taking the right steps to eliminate them, so regular training is a must. We also ensure that our workers are equipped with the right PPE (personal protective equipment) at all times. This includes:

– Steel-capped work boots
– Gloves
– Heavy-duty clothing
– Head protection
– Eye protection
– Ear protection
– High-visibility jackets and vests.

Health and safety also extends to dealing with dangerous substances and materials. In Australia, asbestos is common in older structures, including some older apartments. This must be dealt with properly, and the process requires training and equipment. We have all of the training and protective equipment to get the job done safely.

We also have all of the appropriate insurances. That means that in the incredibly unlikely event that something does occur on site, the right cover is there. This means that if you hire Sydney City Rubbish for your apartment stripout, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.
