Mold & Foundation Cracks – Lake Forest, IL 60035

Customer Name:

Christine K.


The customer noticed that she had multiple issues that needed to be addressed. She had mold growth on her basement walls, ceiling, and floor due to a previous basement flooding. Flooding causes the moisture in organic materials in a basement (i.e. carpet & ceiling tile) to allow the germination of mold spores. This caused major concern because of the certain health and environmental risks attached to mold. Through further examination, it was also discovered that there were several foundation cracks that needed repair. Christine had a couple of issues on her hands would be a headache for any homeowner. Christine knew that the first step to getting rid of these issues would be to seek professional help.


Christine began to search for reputable companies that could properly resolve her mold and foundation issues. After meeting with project managers, she decided to go with Alliance. In the presentation Christine believed that Alliance was more qualified to handle this project. In accordance with a remediation plan written by an IEP, Alliance set up containment moved the personal belongings to the center of the room, remediated the mold, applied a stain remover to heavily stained areas, sanitized and coated the area. The carpet and padding from the storage room was also removed, disposed of, and then that area was remediated too. The crew also removed and disposed of plastic pvc pipe from the perimeter of the space and repaired two foundation cracks. Christine was satisfied that Alliance went to great lengths to ensure the mold and foundation issues were resolved.
