What Our Customers Say
I couldn’t be happier with this company. The guys who came out were very professional, took their time, and genuinely cared about helping me. Thank you both so much, and will be recommending to anyone who can benefit from your services.
I can’t say enough about this company. They were amazing. I loved their work ethic. Teddy, Chris and Bradley were taught well and Mike was certainly a good example. They were efficient, thorough and very polite. I would recommend them to anyone dealing with water damage.
Van, Teddy and Brian were amazing. Came home to a house that had been pouring water for 3 days. Called the service and they were there in an hour and 15 minutes. They had all the water removed in less than 2 hours and started the drying process on a Sunday night!! They came Monday and started demolition. I was amazed at how quickly they were able to get everything up. These guys are the absolute best!! Very professional, courteous, sympathetic, punctual, and most of all VERY hard working. I couldn’t be more pleased with a company!! Highly recommend their service!!
I called Kingsley around 6:30am upon waking up to a flooded bathroom and by 9:00am they were here with a full crew to tear out damaged areas and set up drying equipment. Van, Brian and Teddy were very friendly, punctual and communicative throughout the entire process. I would recommend Kingsley without hesitation.
Not all superheros wear capes. We were in Alabama on vacation when I received a ring doorbell notification on my phone. Our water company came by to let us know approximately 25,000 gallons of water was reportedly used at our address and shut off our water. We called Mike and his team and they were there in less than an hour. When we arrived home nine hours later they had already removed the excess water, removed the flooring, and had thier equipment set up to completely dry everything. We lost most of our possessions downstairs, but gained trust and confidence in a company which is rare these days. Thank you Mike and your team for making a stressful situation a little easier to handle. Thank you Mike, Brian, Van, and Teddy for an outstanding experience!

Would you like to know what separates us from the competition?
- Customer-focused, we work for you, not the insurance company. We’re not on any insurance preferred vendor lists, we’re growing our business by offering quality over quantity.
- Verified state licensing, certified and insured- South Carolina doesn’t require workmen’s comp for small businesses. This leaves you or your insurance on the hook if a contractor gets hurt on your property. Even though SC doesn’t require it, for your protection we carry workmen’s comp insurance among many others. Also, be aware that General liability doesn’t cover mold. When receiving estimates on your project we recommend asking for proof of pollution (mold) liability, general liability, and workmen’s comp. Generally, if our estimate is higher either the other company missed something or they’re not fully insured.
- Estimates. We use the same estimating software as the insurance companies- All pricing has been pre-determined before your estimate was even entered. We enter the square footage of what needs to be done and the software develops the price. This reduces most of the need to negotiate with insurance companies.
- Honest- We don’t use scare tactics to win jobs. We’ll be one of the few companies that tell you mold testing isn’t foolproof. We’d also like everyone to know that dead or inactive mold can cause the same health effects as alive. It isn’t like asbestos where if you don’t disturb it’s safe to leave in place. The goal of remediation is to remove the mold not kill it.
Most of the time mold testing is unnecessary, the CDC and other governmental agencies do not recommend mold testing. They recommend having mold removed as soon as you see it so don’t let a shady contractor trick you into services you don’t need.
A word of caution, neither the federal government nor the state of South Carolina regulates mold. Any company can obtain a mold certification online and then call themselves experts the same day. Be cautious and ask questions. Ultimately you’ll have to decide if the contractor is qualified to take on your project.
