Case Study: Attic Mold Remediation – Highland Park, IL 60040
Information from Projects Completed by Alliance Restoration

Kristen & Scott K.
The clients noticed water staining on the second-floor ceiling of their home. This caused the clients to be concerned and seek a professional opinion from a contractor about repairs. It was determined that the wet ceiling problem was coming from the attic space. Attics aren’t the most occupied space in a home, so this wasn’t something uncommon. There was an attic fan present and running, but no soffit vents were present to increase the airflow. Poor ventilation and airflow caused the insulation to become saturated with moisture, which led to the water staining on the ceiling and mold growth in the attic. Kristen and Scott knew at this point they needed mold removal services and contacted a professional attic mold remediation company to come in to fix this problem.
The clients needed solid options for effective mold removal in the attic so they began to seek out professionals they could trust for mold remediation. After meeting with Alliance Restoration’s project managers they agreed to work with us. They believed in the brand, trusted our ACAC certified mold services, and believed our project manager could orchestrate a successful attic mold remediation. It is important to understand that, before mold remediation can begin, all water issues must be resolved. Alliance removed and discarded all of the wet insulation and performed mold remediation under containment. The clients were thoroughly pleased to see the results. They were also given the peace of mind that their attic was now a clean and healthy space again.
Anything interesting with the project?
- The homeowners requested that we set up our containment system from the attic scuttle on the 2nd floor all the way down the stairs out the front door.
- There was both pre and post mold testing done in the space.
- The homeowner requested that we apply a mold-resistant coating to the attic floor after the insulation removal as well.

The homeowner shared that the testing company said “the attic was clean enough to eat off of” after they had been there to do the post-testing.
“Alliance was extremely professional and did a wonderful job explaining in detail exactly what would be done. They were extremely careful at making sure that they removed the mold and our insulation without compromising the rest of our house. Their employees were extremely prompt, polite and knowledgeable. We had an outside company test once Alliance was done and the mold was successfully removed the first time. We would highly recommend them.”
