Asbestos removal in Santa Barbara, CA

Santa Barbara has a rich architectural history that has been preserved. Victorian homes originally built in the late 1800’s are seen downtown. California Bungalow Style homes from the early 1900’s are still inhabited. The Spanish Colonial and Mission Revival Style of homes and public buildings that gained popularity during the rebuilding period following the 1925 earthquake are still as common today as they were then.

No matter the type of architecture used, many residential, public, and business properties in Santa Barbara have one thing in common. Most were originally built before the use of asbestos materials began to be phased out [1].

Because disturbing asbestos containing materials can cause them to release harmful fibers or particles, every precaution should be taken to keep you and others safe.

Before beginning a renovation or remodeling project, get a legally required asbestos survey, and then contact Alternative Technologies Inc. to remove any asbestos that is found.
