This was after the original floor company canceled our job at the last minute and left us in a bind since the cabinets were scheduled to be installed three days later. I called Rob in a panic to explain the situation, and he had his crew at our house two hours later to begin the demolition. They worked weekends and kept the project on time. Rob and his crew do a great job and do care about their clients, unlike many other contractors out there.” – Barbara S.

It was a terrible experience for the customer because they’d do a bait and switch on them… When I started my business with only $5,000 in my pocket, I knew I had to change the game and be my own boss. I run a very tight ship when it comes to quality. Once Mirabella finally happened, we made sure we were not like these other companies who wouldn’t give accurate estimates. We make sure our customers are satisfied and happy with our work. I make sure every job comes out perfectly. I have zero tolerance for lazy jobs.”

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Chris Sanford, the owner of PuroClean of Rhode Island.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Chris about what makes PuroClean of Rhode Island unique compared to the many other restoration companies in Rhode Island. Chris told us:

“We’ve got passionate, motivated, reliable, cooperative people that want to be here and want to help our customers when they need it the most.”

Chris went on to tell us that, while every company claims to have great customer service, the evidence of the kind of service they provide can be found in their customers’ feedback online.

We also asked Chris about the PuroClean of Rhode Island mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s his response:

“We’re in a unique position where we’re often called when people are having one of their worst days. They’ve had a fire; they’ve had a flood; they’ve got sewage in their basement. They’re usually very unhappy with the situation, and we’re the paramedics of property damage. We want to get there quickly, deal with the situation in a professional manner and get their home or business back into a healthy state of being so they can get on with their lives.”

Building Success by Asking for Reviews

Chris credits PuroClean of Rhode Island’s strong online reputation to that fact that their staff encourages their customers to leave positive reviews; sometimes, their customers leave reviews on their own as well. They’ve found that, if they ask face-to-face instead of via email or text message, they get much better traction.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, PuroClean of Rhode Island has grown by building relationships with insurance agents, property managers and plumbers:

“We’re out every day pounding the pavement and developing relationships with referral partners. We want them to know we are a resource for them when they and/or their clients need help from us. They get that frantic call, and they get the opportunity to refer us.”

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Chris’s expert advice for them:

“I do recommend first getting the right people and the internal processes in place so that you can succeed. Before you drum up business, you want to make sure that you can actually deliver, and then once you can deliver consistently, sell, make the phone ring and follow up on the back end. Honestly and politely ask for them to go and review you and give you feedback.”


Congratulations to PuroClean of Rhode Island for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Chris, for taking the time to speak with us!

We were excited to learn all about Light And Conforti DMDs and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Dr. Gary Light. Dr. Light has been in practice since 1986, and Dr. Conforti has been in practice since 2010. They started their partnership in 2015, and each year, their practice continues to grow.

“It’s all about customer service and taking care of people in exemplary fashion. If people are in pain, have fractured a tooth, or have an emergency situation that requires immediate attention, we make every effort to see them the same day and accommodate their needs.

He went on to tell us about the quality of care they offer and how the latest technology makes them stand a step above the rest:

“We truly care about what we do and strive to deliver the highest quality of care in an efficient and compassionate manner. We offer state-of-the-art technology. We have a Cone Beam CT scan machine. Not many offices have that. It allows us to place dental implants right here in our office. We have a Trios Optical Scanner, which allows us to take digital impressions, and every treatment room is computerized for digital x-rays and electronic record keeping. We do a lot of restorative and high-end cosmetic reconstructive dentistry. We also work with highly skilled laboratory technicians and use only the best materials. Because we are able to do a lot of dental work in-house, we do not have to refer people to other offices, which is very convenient and is appreciated by our patients.”

Building Success With A Personal Touch

Light And Conforti DMDs has earned a fantastic reputation, so we were excited to hear about some of the ways they have gotten their name out and grown their business over the years. Dr. Light told us that their success is all thanks to word of mouth and referrals. They have also gained recognition for the many charitable efforts they are involved in. Their office sponsors a bicycle team that raises money for M.S., Dr. Conforti volunteers for the Rhode Island Free Clinic, which just recently started offering dental services, and both Dr. Light and Dr. Conforti participate in the DDS (donated dental services) program, which treats several patients a year at no charge.
