As a resident of Illinois, you know that mold damage is a serious issue because of the humid climate. Unfortunately, mold and mildew don't care to announce their presence

These costs can vary significantly based on the extent of the damage but are often covered under your insurance policy. Contact ATI to review your specific building and insurance policy, and set a disaster recovery plan now that will meet your budget and avoid any surprises in the future.
Before we begin on the services you need, we confirm your insurance policy and approved coverages. Having in-house insurance experts allows us to move fast. Prior to any disaster, ATI can work with your insurance company to create an inventory, capturing photos of the existing building and its contents and draft an emergency response agreement. Throughout the restoration process, we update the insurance company and send photos, preventing miscommunication or surprise costs.
This depends on the level of damage your building has experienced, but we often phase the restoration to get tenants back into the space as quickly and safely as possible. Repair time also depends on any damage done to the building’s structure, which may not be immediately evident. If the building requires no reconstruction, the restoration process can happen quickly. Many aspects of a restoration can be a continuous process. Regular duct cleaning is required to completely remove particles, annual water and moisture mapping for mold is necessary to keep it under control, and general inspections are recommended to make sure the restoration is supporting a safe and functional building.
