“Purofirst was awesome. They were extremely professional, and they went above and beyond. They responded quickly and did a great job. I had complete trust. They were an A+. I'd recommend them to anyone.”
“Absolutely outstanding. They worked like surgeons—very efficient and very protective of all my furniture and personal belongings. I can't say enough good things about them. They were excellent. I'd grade them an A.”

“The people from Purofirst are absolutely fantastic. I had a condo that flooded over, and we were originally referred to another restoration company that the property manager had a contract with. Based on our insurance, though, we were not bound to work with them, so a friend of a friend told us about Purofirst to do our pack out. When I was speaking with the team leader on the pack out, I learned that they also do restoration. From there, he gave me the estimate. He was so prompt, and he actually cared—he followed up even when there was nothing to follow up on. Even if there wasn't any reason to call, he'd just let me know there was nothing going on that day. Then, there are the people who I really cannot thank enough. There were two main guys. I could not have asked for a better project manager. I'm not exactly sure what his title is, but I'm talking about somebody who went absolutely above and beyond. He was working the schedule around to meet mine. He followed up with everything, and the company was never hard to reach with phone calls. When somebody has a flood, they're just absolutely helpless. I really don't know what we would have done without Purofirst. A friend from a long time ago introduced us to Purofirst. He runs an upholstery and garment restoration company, and he came to take some of our garments and upholstered items out. We were talking about what was going on and how frustrated I'd been, and he said he knew somebody at Purofirst who could help with the pack out. From there, they did a great job with the pack out, so we changed services and went with them for the restoration. They earned their A+ from us.”
“The people from Purofirst are fine. They were very considerate, and they did everything in a timely fashion. They did a good, professional job. They did water remediation for us. We had a flood in the house, and we had water damage on the first and second floor. Their customer service is pretty decent. We have a rather large dog at home, and they were very considerate of the fact that we're very protective of our dog. They did a good job of making sure the situation was comfortable throughout the work they were doing with regard to our house and our dog. My fiancee works regular hours, but my hours are all over the place. The people from Purofirst were very understanding of the time frame in which they could come and fix stuff. Our insurance company recommended them to us. They earned an A.”
“My mother's apartment was completely burned and had a lot of water damage. The people from Purofirst were dealing with the apartment management as well as with me. Specifically, they helped me sort out what would make more sense for me to pack up and what they would pack up as well as what kind of materials I would need. They were very conscientious with what they packed and protected, and I did not feel like they were trying to sell me something or taking advantage of the situation. The apartment complex found them for us. They deserve an A.”
“My basement was flooded. There was water all down the wall. They put the dehumidifiers and the fans to dry it up, and they cleaned up the entire mess. The insurance people sent them. There were only one or two workers coming to my home, and they did a good job. Purofirst gets an A.”
“They were very kindly and very efficient, and they cleaned up after themselves. They came back when they said they were going to come back to remove the fan, and they did a good job. I heard about Purofirst through my insurance company. They earned an A.”
