They couldn't come out because they only had a couple of hours each day and they communicated that to me before they got here. Overall great experience. We had some mold in the garage leading up to the floorboards of a bathroom upstairs and they came in and took care of all of that. A+. I've had them out twice.

It was for water damage, basically removing a section of drywall that had become damaged and potentiality of black mold, things of that nature.”

“I actually dealt with them twice because we had a flood and then we had a second flood and I would say I got the same crew, or at least a guy nameed Dan was super nice, very personable.

“They were very professional, very timely, just all around pleasant. It was water damage. My water heater broke, which of course flooded the place. They came in. They cleaned up. They made sure the base boards were off and made sure I didn't start growing things. Then they came in and replaced the floors. I would give them an A.”

“ProTech Water Damage were dependable. They came as soon as they could. They brought in extra humidity fans to take out the moisture. They came practically in the middle of the night. They followed what they said they were doing, came back, and checked on it. They had to wait until the moisture was at a certain level before they took out the fans. They did everything they said. I'd give them an A.”

“I thought they did a good job. They showed up on time. They were neat. They were clean. They were cost conscious.

I'd give them an A. They were on time.”

“They were wonderful. A major pipe disintegrated, and they cleaned the carpet and the ceiling tiles before the plumber came. They were very meticulous—really good. I had an excellent experience. I would give them an A+.”

“That was last Summer, and we had a very good experience with them. They were very nice, professional, polite, courteous, and they cleaned up everything really well. Whenever they were in or out, it was like they were never here. And one thing that was especially nice is, they put stuff back. I didn't have to take a picture to remember where everything went. If they moved something, they put it right back where it was, and it really made it a better experience than it could have been. It was unsettling to have the water damage, but they didn't make more of a mess. I would grade them A across the board. I had no problems at all. If they said they were going to be here at a certain time, they were here. If I had a question, they answered it. It went very smoothly, from start to finish. I really got to know them and their different specialties that they brought in, like painting and carpeting. They were really excellent.”

“They were outstanding. We had black mold. They were very helpful. I would recommend them.”

“They did basement water damage restoration. They repaired what was damaged; all they did was dry it out. They did excellent work; no problems.”

“It was great. It was remediation work; we had a pipe that broke. They were very prompt, on time, and got the job done quickly. They were very nice, so overall it was really good. I would grade them an A+.”

“It was water damage work that they did for me. I would grade them an A+.”

“They took up our carpeting, because we had mold damage, and I was pleased with them. I would grade them an A+.”

“We haven't had any issues, as far as I know. They just did the regular water mold remediation. I would grade them an A+.”

“They worked to avoid a leak from the sump pump. They hadn't put together a joint really well where the tech valve was. It had been spraying the basement with water. This was on my pre-closing and walkthrough. The water hadn't been there a long time, so it was easy to get it dried out quickly. I would grade them an A+.”

“ProTech did general water damage work. I would grade them an A+.”

“It was fine work; everything was good. Everything was done fine and cleaned up. We had water damage in the powder room on the first floor. They removed it, and it was fine. I have no complaints. Everything was fine, and I would recommend them to a friend.”

“They did mold remediation. I would grade them an A. They were very clean, and they seemed very knowledgeable. I would recommend them.”

“They were great. I had no complaints. The work was for water damage.”

“I think they did water damage work on my downstairs. I remember them being very good. I had no complaints whatsoever. I would recommend them to a friend.”

“It was water damage work they did. I would grade them an A.”

“ProTech did some water damage work. The gentleman that came out at the time was very nice to us and very detailed with the work he did. He helped us out at a very difficult time. I would grade them an A. I would most likely recommend them to a friend.”

“They do a great job. The work was for the basement; we had a lot of water. I would grade them an A, all across the board.”

“They were great. We had a crack in our foundation, so we had water coming in and a little bit of mold. I would grade them an A.”

“They cleaned up after themselves, and they were prompt. They were polite. They cleaned up our basement after some flooding. I would grade them an A-.”

“I didn't believe that what they were going to do to stop the problem was going to work. I was shocked with the results, I was really surprised. I had water running in my bathroom five hours before I noticed it. And it went all the way down into the basement and caused a small flood in the basement. I didn't believe that they could get that up and dry it out. Someone else came, and I think they sent them, they had to replace a cabinet. I would grade them an A. I had the cabinet fixed, but the first part was cleaning up the water. The second part was to get the cabinet fixed, and it took a long time.”

“ProTech was great. It felt like the guy that was here generally felt bad for us about our situation. We had a flood, and I was in the middle of studying for the bar exam—he was really understanding about everything. I feel like he was really up-front and honest about what he could do to make the situation as best as it could be, considering the circumstances. They had the floor system installed to suck up the water from our wet floor. It was there for over a week with dehumidifiers and stuff. I would grade ProTech as an A.”

“They were thorough, professional, and on time. They didn't waste a lot of time, and they had good people on the job. We had a powerless, back-up sump pump that worked off of village water pressure that somehow turned on itself, and the next thing you know, we had 16 inches of water in the basement on a perfectly clear day. They were involved in cleanup—getting stuff out of there, disinfection, that kind of stuff. Our insurance company steered us their way, and we could not have been more pleased with ProTech. Without question, they're an A across the board—that's how good they are.”

“They were able to do it fast, and I didn't have to wait. They were clean, polite, and professional. It was just all-around good. They had to remove existing insulation that was soaked from a broken pipe, and then they reapplied insulation in the crawlspace. The customer service was very good. They were very nice, and they were very clean and tidied up everything. They were definitely an A.”

“The guy was friendly. They got the work done quickly. I had some water damage, so they pulled it out with a suction device. Some carpeting was wet, too. I would give them an A grade.”

“ProTech was good. They did a good job cleaning up. They cleaned up the water damage that we had in our basement—that's what I liked about them. I believe our plumber recommended them. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I liked everything about ProTech. They were courteous, and they knew what they were doing. They cleaned everything up, and they did a good job. They had to cut up the walls and air dry everything, and they put in some stuff to prevent mold. They did a full job. They're an A.”

“I liked their professionalism. A connection to our sump pump had become disengaged, and it was squirting water all over our basement. They came in and took care of rescuing our basement, and I would give them an A.”

“They showed up and did the work. They did what they said they were going to do. They cleaned out our basement from water damage, and they took up the wood floor, which was pretty difficult. I'd give them an A grade.”

“ProTech was pretty prompt. It was for water damage, and they were doing the cleanup portion of it. I chose them based on a positive referral that I got; part of the reason I chose them was because of response time. I would probably say they're an A.”

“If I have water damage again, I will definitely call ProTech. They came quickly, and they were very careful workers. I would definitely recommend them. A few weeks after it happened, the owner called me and asked how things were, and I was very impressed with that. The front window well was plugged up, and the water came into the basement like Niagara Falls. They definitely get an A+.”

“ProTech was terrific. The technicians were courteous and understanding. I gave them a lot of problems, and they did excellent work. They were sanitizing because stuff kept backing up into my laundry room. I would grade them as an A.”

“I liked ProTech's service. They were very fast, and their customer service was great. They fixed water damage in a basement and sprayed for mold. They get an A+. I loved them.”

“ProTech did some work in my old home right before I moved. I had some pipes burst right before I put that property on the market and sold it, so I had them come out and do some water remediation. They were great—very professional. They were terrific. They provided a lot of direction in terms of what to do after the fact. They kind of walked me through the whole process, which I thought was helpful. I would say it was an excellent experience.”

“The sewer line between the house and the septic tank froze thanks to our polar vortex. The sewer backed up into the house and went down into the basement. It did an incredible amount of damage to the floor, ceiling, and all kinds of stuff. As I recall, they did a good job of cleaning up. The insurance company recommended them. They said, 'Here, we'll get these people to do it.' They were the ones who did the environmental cleanup, because I had sewage all over. It was not a nice experience, and I would say ProTech did an excellent job. They really did. The guy's name was Benjamin McCauly, and he did a great job.”

“They were wonderful. I would give them an A+.”

“I would definitely say that the work was good. They were very professional. They knew what they were doing, and they were in and out in a timely manner. There was as little destruction to the house as possible in view of the fact that they had to go through the living room, into a bedroom, and down into the crawl space through a pipe and a hole. I would say they did an excellent job without creating havoc on the rest of the house. I would give them an A+. They did a good job.”

“ProTech seemed to be on top of things. They came when they were supposed to and cleaned up, so I thought it was good. I had mold they took care of. I found out about them when they came out to give me an estimate for my insurance company. My insurance company had called them, and I liked them the best. They seemed to be on top of things, so I went ahead with them. They cleaned up well after their service. Hopefully, I never have to use them again, but if I do have the need, I would call them back. I would give them an A rating.”

“ProTech came on time, and they did work on time. They were professional. If I am not mistaken, I think my plumber told me about them. I'd give them an A because they were excellent, and I have no complaints.”

“I had some work done by ProTech. I had a few incidents they've helped me with. The most recent one was a restoration job for flooding. They did very well, and the service was very responsive. I would definitely rate them the highest score for sure.”

“We had some work done by ProTech. We would give them an A. It was excellent work. They were great.”

“They were very good. I would give them an excellent score.”

“I felt ProTech was very good—very professional and very careful about bringing in the equipment and everything. I had some plumbing problems for a pipe that had cracked in the basement, so they had to come in. My plumbers were the ones that recommended ProTech for the cleanup in the crawlspace. There was a crack somewhere, and before the plumber would come in and work, they wanted that all cleaned up and sanitized. ProTech did a good job. They were an excellent company, and I have no complaints.”

“We got some work done, and I think the guy that came was very professional. He did what he was supposed to do. I would give them the best score. They're an A.”

“We had a flood, and ProTech did some work for us. They did a great job. The basement is perfect. My plumber recommended the company. I would give them an A.”

“They did some work for me over the last year. The gentleman called on us first and then followed through with everything. Aside from the actual repairs, he was great to work with and very responsive. He fixed the hole in the ceiling caused by the water, and the follow-up was great. He even called back about a week or so later to make sure everything was OK. Our insurance agent recommended them, and it was great. I would give them an A+.”

“I had restorative issues, and they did what they said they were going to do. I actually got ProTech through my insurance. I'd give them an A+.”
