Our Story

Views of the Cincinnati, OH skyline and such attractions as Devou Park, Twin Oaks Golf and Plantation Club, and the Newport Aquarium make Northern Kentucky a great place to live or visit. “We love this area for its people and climate,” says Greg Hilycord, owner of PuroClean of Northern Kentucky. Greg and his wife have lived in the Northern Kentucky area and in the same house for over 20 years. Greg recalls the time they returned from vacation to find their basement filled with water due to sump pump failure. “We truly were not prepared for this. I can certainly remember the sound of the non-stop blowing of the fans in the effort to dry out the carpet. As a PuroClean owner I want to remember that feeling of helplessness I had as a homeowner.” Along with sump pump and plumbing issues, some homes lie along the Ohio and Licking Rivers, which can flood during heavy rains. According to the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, flooding is Kentucky’s most common and costly natural disaster. PuroClean of Northern Kentucky is prepared to handle all water damage, as well as fire, mold, and biohazards.

Greg’s goal is “to communicate well and complete the job as quickly as possible. The wonderful people of the Northern Kentucky area deserve no less.” The team at PuroClean of Northern Kentucky will quickly and accurately assess the problem, come up with a plan and communicate that to you, and then quickly and efficiently solve the problem so you can get back to your life.
