Mold Can Be Serious

Should I test for mold?

Here is a little-known secret about testing for mold and inspections that many mold remediation companies will not tell you. If you see mold, testing can sometimes be unnecessary and a waste of money. If you already see obvious, visible mold, you usually do not need a mold test — you simply need to remove it following industry-standard guidelines. This is where a professional mold remediation company should come into play.

What if I want to test for mold?

We have a company we refer to and work with for testing as it is a special service. A sample can be taken before and after mold remediation to give you peace of mind.

What is professional mold remediation?

Professional mold remediation includes removing mold using certain techniques, combined with other industry suggested methods to ensure human health & safety in the home.

Alliance Restoration performs mold remediation through guidelines set by the Clean Trust; (IICRC) “Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation”.

We are also an ISEAI IEC member.

Mold Removal Process in Lake in the Hills

No matter the scope of the project, Alliance uses Standard Operating Procedures to comply with our Health & Safety Program. These mold removal methods ensure that every project meets the highest industry standards.

Alliance Restoration performs home mold removal with current industry standards in mind and includes the following goals:

  1. Safety and Health
  2. Mold Control, Removal & Prevention
  3. Project Documentation

To start mold remediation, we perform an inspection to identify moisture and mold sources in the building. The results of this inspection will decide what the next steps in the process should be. Before starting on the project, we work to reduce the danger of mold moving to other areas of the home. Some methods we use to control mold dispersion include source containment and isolation barriers.

Contaminant removal is the main part of the mold treatment process. Chemicals alone will not solve problems caused by the long-term effects of mold. Proper methods include either removing and/or cleaning of building materials. Mold can not grow without enough moisture, so identifying and repairing moisture problems is the first step in the home mold remediation process to prevent future mold. This can include fixing plumbing leaks, sealing your attic, basement, or crawlspace from moisture sources, and reducing humid air.

Alliance Restoration offers free mold and moisture inspections to homeowners in Lake in the Hills as well as in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, including Highland Park, Schaumburg, Crystal Lake, and more.

Alliance Restoration, Inc. is trained and certified by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC), and the Clean Trust. We are also an ISEAI IEC member.

Now that you have an overview of our home mold remediation process, you can explore two of our main focus areas in the home: attic mold removal and basement and crawl space mold clean up.

Such Great Work

Thanks to the men who did such good work in my basement and thanks and appreciation to Paul Damato for his unfailing professionalism and helpfulness.

Baiba K Winnetka, IL 60093 Basement

Happy with final results

Alliance Restoration was professional and timely in both scheduling and on-site work. Both my attic and basement areas were completed in a couple of days. We were very happy with their commitment to this job, and the final results.

Basement mold remediation

We hired Alliance Restoration to perform mold remediation on our basement. Once they removed the drywall the crew discovered cracks in the foundation walls that we were not aware of. Alliance was able to fix them too. We are happy to recommend Alliance Restoration.

Flooding from burst pipe

Exceptional service and would recommend Alliance Restoration in the future. Flooding occurred due to a pipe burst in the basement. Alliance immediately responded, upon arrival at the property the crew began working and even discovered some cracks in my foundation and were able to provide a very reasonable estimate to fix.

Water from sump pump failure

We had a sump pump failure and water in our finished basement. The overall experience was good.

Flooded basement

We had a flooded basement. I would hire this company again without reservation.

Michael L. Chicago, IL 60007

Good honest people

My basement flooded and they were able to come in and take care of the flood and clean out the basement. The problem was much deeper than we thought. Alliance gutted out the old system, part of the basement and then were able to replace the entire drain system. They were phenomenal and outstanding. I would recommend them. They are good, honest people.

By far best company we have worked with

Alliance Restoration Inc. is by far the best company we have worked with from start to finish. They cleaned and treated our basement floor.  They were very responsive over the phone and provided accurate detail and were patient with each question I had.  The crew was extremely hard working and meticulous with his work.

Great company to work with.

Great company to work with. They did a great job! They were very quick to respond and were able to schedule an appointment in a relatively short period of time. Great customer service and the workers did a spectacular job throughout the whole process and were very nice to work with. Thanks!!
