    "Best Dry is one of the most responsive companies I have had to use during an emergency. We had a flood and after a frantic call to Anabelle Petersen at 7:30 a.m., Tom was at our home within just an hour to begin to mitigate the water damage on two levels of our home. Quality customer service is certainly the key to every company, and Best Dry Flood & Mold has nailed it. I encourage everyone to get to know this local, family-owned business."

    "Tom Petersen of Best Dry gave me a great price and did a beautiful job. A leak in one of the sinks in my master bathroom had caused water damage and mold in the vanity under the sink and on the floor and walls. I had gotten a bid from Gold Coast for almost $4000, but Tom Petersen did the job for $2000. Tom and his helper set it up so the bathroom was sealed off from the bedroom with a zippered door. They removed the wet parts of the cabinet and dry wall, disinfected remaining areas, and installed an air scrubber and dehumidifier for a three-day period. They were very careful to protect my carpet and Corian counter top. With the bathroom sealed off like that, the machines went about their business while I went about mine, and the experience was actually quite benign. When they removed all the equipment three days later, they left everything perfectly neat. Last, and one of the most important things to me, Tom was just so kind. Some contractors seem to want to scare you, but Tom was very reassuring when he looked the problem over, and he was totally professional from beginning to end."

    "Tom came quickly to my home when we discovered water damage from our showers in both bathrooms. He did the demo in two bathrooms and a bedroom. He was amazing – a really nice guy. Every day at lunch I stopped by and he would show me what he found and what he recommended. He did not demo anything that could be saved. He also gave recommendations on what could be done to further waterproof areas of the home. He was very clear on quotes for labor and work to be completed and did not proceed with work without approval. Would even call and give me updates throughout the day on good news and bad news items as he uncovered things."

    "Twice in the past few years, when buying homes near the coast, I found that homes I wanted to buy had mold. In the first case, after interviewing a few mold specialists, I decided to work with Tom Petersen of Best Dry, the most importantly he was a pleasure to work, and very professional and knowledgeable.I also needed to call upon Tom’s help when I woke up to a huge flood early one morning. I called Tom, and he was at my home immediately, cleaning up and drying out the water damage. Thanks to his quick response, the damage was minimized. I have recommended Best Dry to my closest friends, and we have all felt confident in his work. I would recommend him without reservation!"

    "Tom Petersen of Best Dry did mold remediation and drying in my master bath and adjacent bedroom closet. A leak in one of the sinks had caused a lot of water damage and mold in the vanity under the sink and on the floor and walls. The job entailed removing the interior parts of the vanity cabinet and surrounding dry wall, which were wet and contaminated, sanding, scrubbing and disinfecting remaining areas, setting up a containment area with a zippered door, and installing a large commercial HEPA Air Scrubber and a large commercial Dehumidifier for a three-day period. Tom had done a bigger job for me a few years ago, so I already knew that his price would be fair and his work would be top rate.
    I would give an A++ to Tom Petersen for his great price, his beautiful work and his kindly, professional manner. First about the price: Tom’s bid was just about half the bid I received from another provider. The other provider had me literally sick, talking in such ominous tones about what a big job this was. Tom was so different. He said, “Oh this is not too bad. We’ll have to remove all that under the sink and into the closet, but that’s not a real big deal. We can prop up the Corian counter top so it won’t be damaged, and we can save the front piece with drawers and doors so you don’t have to have all that rebuilt.” And the biggest difference (apart from the price) was that the other provider said it would take about two weeks, with a big hose running out through my bedroom. Tom said it would take three days and would be contained to the bathroom. He returned the next day with a helper and set it up so the bathroom was sealed off from the bedroom with a zippered door. They were very careful to protect my light carpet and to preserve the Corian counter top. They removed all wet and contaminated material, which looked to me like a ton of stuff, disinfected the remaining material and set up the HEPA Air Scrubber and Dehumidifier inside the containment area. With the bathroom sealed off like that, the machines went about their business while I went about mine, and the experience was actually quite benign. When they removed all the equipment three days later, they left everything perfectly neat. Later when the contractor came to restore the cabinets and closet, he kept raving about what a beautiful job Tom had done. He said all the cut lines were clean and true, and he was overjoyed about some of the pieces Tom had thought to save. Last, and one of the most important things to me, Tom was just so kind. He doesn’t want to worry you or gouge you. He takes pride in his work and charges a fair price."
