Asbestos Removal Los Angeles, CA
Since 1992 Alternative Technologies Inc. (ATI) has safely removed asbestos from thousands of homes and commercial properties. Our Los Angeles asbestos removal company is fully licensed and certified to practice the safe removal and disposal of asbestos. We call this practice ‘asbestos abatement’.
To be clear, we are NOT an asbestos testing company. We do not inspect your residential or commercial property for asbestos. Instead, we are the company you hire to remove it, or in some instances, encapsulate it.
If your asbestos test report is positive, your next step is to have the asbestos-containing material removed by a trained and accredited asbestos professional. This is where we come into the picture.
Asbestos is not something you can ignore or hope it will go away on its own. Asbestos has been known to pose a health risk. Accordingly, federal agencies have taken steps to regulate all forms of this product. Most notable are the Clean Air Act in 1970 and the Toxic Substances Control Act in 1976.
Asbestos Test Required Before Remodeling or Renovating in Los Angeles
You may not be aware that California law requires you get an asbestos test before you begin a home remodeling or renovation project. It’s not uncommon to discover Los Angeles homes built before the 1970s used materials that contained asbestos, such as plaster, cement, vinyl floor tiles, and thermal insulation.
For your own protection, having this test done before starting your project is a smart idea. You will have peace of mind knowing in advance whether it’s okay or not to knock down a wall or floor or remove old plumbing pipes. If asbestos dust is released in the air, it can be inhaled and pose a health risk. You don’t want it to spread to other parts of your house which could result in further contamination.
If your test report indicates the location of solid and friable asbestos materials, don’t attempt to remove it yourself! The risk to harm yourself and family is very high if you don’t have the proper training, equipment and licenses.
Err on the side of caution and call us at (310) 473-2509 to discuss your test report findings. We will address all of your concerns so you don’t feel anxious or nervous.

“I hired Alternative Technologies to remove what remained of some asbestos. They did a great job and what impressed me the most is that when some additional areas that went beyond the quote were found the owner got on the phone with the crew and had them stay extra to complete the job. They stepped up and that is worthy of recognition. They can be trusted!”
“Outstanding organization. Performed asbestos and furnace ducts removal and installed new ducting in a very short time period. I give this company the highest endorsement possible.”
“I was very happy with their service. I needed to have asbestos removed from my roof. In speaking with the owner, he knew the area and had removed many asbestos roofs over time, so that was the reason I hired him. They stayed on schedule, and cleaned up the area nicely. My roofer was happy with their work, so we were able to move forward on installing the roof. The company is very professional and knowledgeable.”
