Can a mold test tell me how dangerous mold is?
If mold in your building is visible, you usually do not need a mold test. Testing for mold is sometimes unnecessary and it may be a waste of money. If the mold in your home is obvious you need to remove it to protect the indoor air quality and your health – a professional mold remediation company can help you. We will follow industry-standard guidelines for mold removal and remediation.
Who do I call if I want to get a mold test?
Mold testing is a special service. Alliance Restoration can refer you to a trusted mold testing company. Before and after mold remediation, a sample can be taken to give you peace of mind.
What is professional mold remediation?

Using professional mold remediation techniques and following industry suggested standards, Alliance Restoration will help to ensure human health and safety in the home.

Mold Removal Process for Carpentersville Homeowners
No matter the scope of the project, Alliance Restoration uses Standard Operating Procedures to comply with our Health & Safety Program. Each of our mold removal methods and techniques ensure that every project meets the highest industry standards.
Alliance Restoration performs home mold remediation services with three specific goals in mind:
- Safety and Health
- Mold Control, Removal & Prevention
- Project Documentation
Each mold removal project begins with an inspection to identify moisture and mold sources in the building. The results of this inspection determine our next steps in the mold remediation process and help us understand how to reduce the danger of mold growth in other areas of your home. We work to control mold dispersion by implementing source containment and isolation barriers.
Identifying and repairing moisture problems is the first step in the home mold remediation process to prevent future mold. Mold can not grow without enough moisture, so fixing plumbing leaks, sealing your attic, basement, or crawlspace from moisture sources, and reducing humid air is necessary to protect your health and safety in the future.
Proper mold removal methods should always include either removing and/or cleaning of building materials. Contaminant removal is a critical part of the mold treatment process. Chemicals alone will not solve problems caused by the long-term effects of mold.
Alliance Restoration offers free mold and moisture inspections to homeowners in Carpentersville, IL as well as in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, including Highland Park, Schaumburg, Crystal Lake, and more.
Alliance Restoration, Inc. is an ISEAI IEC member. We are also trained and certified by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC), and the Clean Trust.
