Mold Is Serious Business

What exactly is professional mold remediation?

Professional mold remediation is mold removal combined with other procedures and disciplines intended to ensure the protection of human health & safety and minimize the potential of future contamination.
Alliance Restoration performs mold remediation primarily utilizing the guidelines set forth by the Clean Trust; formerly Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration and Certification (IICRC) “Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation”.

Mold Remediation Process

Regardless of the severity or scope of a mold remediation project, Alliance Restoration utilizes Standard Operating Procedures developed in strict compliance with our Health & Safety Program and are based upon the IICRC Principals of Mold Remediation. These Procedures ensure every project is conducted according to the highest of industry standards.

Mold remediation projects performed by Alliance Restoration, Inc. are carried out following current industry standards and incorporate the following elements:

  1. Occupant & Worker Safety and Health
  2. Project Documentation
  3. Contamination Control
  4. Contamination Removal
  5. Contamination Prevention

The first step in an Alliance Restoration, Inc. mold remediation project is conducting an inspection to identify actual or potential mold contamination and known or suspected areas of moisture intrusion. The result of this inspection is a preliminary determination of what the next steps of the project should be.

Although good verbal communications are an important aspect of a mold remediation project, Alliance Restoration, Inc. understands that project documentation is critical in solidifying the project understanding between all interested parties. Project documents detail factors contributing to the mold problem, extent of contamination, and steps to correct the issue.

Prior to beginning remediation activities, measures are put in place to minimize the potential of contaminants migrating to uncontaminated areas. Methods used to control contaminant dispersion include source containment, isolation barriers and pressure differentials.

Contaminant removal is the primary means of mold remediation. Chemical applications alone are not an effective solution to the potential effects of mold contamination. Contaminant removal methods include either discarding or cleaning of building materials and other contents.

Mold cannot grow without enough moisture. Correcting moisture problems is how future contamination is prevented. This can include repairing plumbing leaks, preventing intrusions from outdoor sources, reducing humidity and correcting ventilation problems.

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.

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.

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.
