Orange CA was incorporated in 1871, but it didn’t really start to boom until close to 20 years later when the combined effect of railroad rate wars and an increased demand for California citrus fruits drew more and more settlers to the region. Orange CA experienced a second boom in the 1950s, when new freeways started connecting outlying areas like Orange with downtown LA and made this city attractive to suburbanites. Today, Orange CA offers visitors a chance to step back in time with a stroll through the Old Town District, which contains many historic homes built prior to the1920s. While these quintessentially Californian homes are certainly charming to look at, some of them might be dangerous to live in without proper renovations. Old homes and businesses can contain lead paint and asbestos-containing materials. If these hazards are found on your property, call AQHI Inc. We can help with lead and asbestos remediation as well as remove PCBs and mold.
