We're grateful for our loyal customers.
Here's what they are saying.

Alan Giordano, Homeowner

McKee Environmental has provided us with an extremely valuable service in inspection and consulting when we needed it the most. After Hurricane Irene, we were in a pinch after being flooded with 2 1/2 feet of water in my mother’s house. The professional and caring work that was performed saved us from a situation that was severe and time-sensitive due to the mold build-up after the waters receded. I would absolutely recommend McKee Environmental, Inc. for competent, caring, and professional inspection and consulting work. You will not be sorry in choosing this great company!
