    Customer Testimonial

              When I called the office the receptionist was very friendly and helpful with scheduling a appt. around my hectic schedule. When the sales rep Michael Alexander got to my house I liked the fact that he was not pushy and explained the work in detail. I felt very comfortable and trusting with him. The service tech Michael Quinn came to the house on time to install the SandiDry system and he was extremely nice and very thorough with his work. I had used other dehumidifiers in the past and none worked as well as this one does. I would recommend Healthy Basement Systems to everyone!

              Michael Alexander was incredibly professional. I felt an instant trust from him. I read about Healthy Basement Systems on the internet and thought the presentation was very inviting. I have used a large competitor of yours for another job but found your company to be more professional. Steve, Jorge, and Brian were so good and courteous. The cleanup was perfect. I have never been more impressed by non-owner laborers. They were so nice and meticulous in their work. You can see they liked what they do. I know they have no equity in the business but their disposition and work habits were as if they did. Great, great experience.
