Purofirst had to take care of a basement leak that we had, and I would give them an A for their excellent work.
I liked that they worked with the estimate my insurance company had provided me with. They provided several different options for how I could go forward, and they were just all-around great guys. They fixed a leak in my bathroom, and then replaced some of the stuff that was damaged. Their office staff was really helpful—everybody was really good. I would grade them as an A, definitely.
Purofirst did my water mitigation. They were professional and polite, and they made every appointment on time. I think they were in my house six times, and they were very good to work with. I had a leak on my second floor, and they pulled out the wet drywall and then came back to monitor the moisture content and the dehumidifier. They came in Friday afternoon and finished the following Thursday. They came through my insurance company. Purofirst is an A.
We had a refrigerator leak water into the basement. Purofirst dried everything out with fans, stripped the drywall off, and cleaned the water damage inside the walls. What made it great was that they were very thorough. They communicated what they were doing very well. We had no idea what to expect, and they cleaned up after themselves and were professional. My insurance actually recommended them to me, and I would say they deserve an A.
The technicians were prompt, and they got the work done. They fixed some water damage stuff that we had on a jobsite. Another contractor referred me to Purofirst. I would give them an A.
Purofirst cleaned up some mold that we had found in our basement. We found them through our insurance company's recommendation. They get an A from us.
They remediated some water damage. They were efficient when they came in to do the restoration. They were referred by my insurance company. I'd grade them as an A.
They did water remediation. They were really responsive and did a great job of trying to solve our problems. They earned their A from us.
They put some fans in my house and cut a hole in the wall to dry the floor under the master bathroom. My insurance person found Purofirst for me. The customer service was nice—it was fine. I would give them an A.
Purofirst of Metropolitan Washington did a great job. They were very organized and had a very disciplined approach to the whole thing, and the team was excellent. A ceiling collapsed and busted a pipe, and that created a lot of water damage in the basement. The person in charge was incredible; he orchestrated everything like a conductor. They deserve an A grade.
