    Customer Review

    By Anna B.
    University Park, TX

    After my family home became contaminated with mold, I hired Olympic Restoration Systems to do mold remediation on my family furniture and other keepsakes, and to move them to a different location. Darrin, Justin, Andrew and Adan were professional and thorough in their work. They looked for ways to be helpful. I am delighted that they were able to clean and salvage many things that I had not expected to be able to save. They handled my furniture very carefully while cleaning, packing and moving it. I enjoyed my association with these men and I appreciate all they did to help me. I would highly recommend Olympic Restoration Systems!

    Customer Testimonial

              My experience with Olympic Restoration and in particular my interactions with everyone including - Nancy (front office) and Darren and Ross (in the field) were outstanding. This is a top notch organization, trustworthy, kind and compassionate. They took the time, they patiently answered every question I had, they were not pushy about anything. They were fair on pricing and options and they operate with the client in mind, first and foremost. I only hope that more businesses, particularly those in the field of home care, repair and mitigation would operate with the pure class of this group. Thank you all for being outstanding professionals.
