Our company is a full-service commercial playground equipment company, and one of these services is demolishing existing playgrounds. Sometimes, playgrounds get so old that the play structures and swing sets fail structurally, become sharp, or get eaten up by rust. Our company demolishes all commercial play structures, including steel units and wooden units.
Commercial playground equipment is usually secured in the ground with concrete at the base of each post. When we remove existing equipment, we give you the option of having the concrete footers removed from the ground, or simply cutting off the units at the base of the vertical posts and leaving the concrete footers where they are. You can save money by leaving the concrete footers where they are, but you should be aware that this may make it more complicated to install new equipment in that same area.
Metal play units usually don't fail structurally -- usually the components fail, like plastic slides or climbers that crack and break over time. Also, the opening sizes in metal structures can become obsolete: a gap or space that used to be considered acceptable under previous playground safety standards may now be considered a dangerous head entrapment (for example; any full-bounded opening that measures between 3-1/2" and 9" in one direction).
Unlike metal play structures, wooden play structures usually fail structurally -- they rot at the base of the posts. One way to test your wooden structure is to go to one end and push on the side of it. If you can rock the structure back and forth, even slightly, there may be a problem with rot. Also look for green mold or rings at the base of the wooden posts, then start digging. You may be surprised what you see 6" - 12" below ground level.
For demolition projects, we usually use John Deere loaders/excavators. We can also dispose of any item you need removed, usually by taking it to the dump.
