Michael, you were of such help today to us, not only with your vast knowledge and experience, but your suggestions and guidance as how we should proceed and, lastly, your heartfelt sympathy for our loss and devastating situation.  it’s taken us a week of many phone calls and efforts to find anyone to even talk to, let alone the likes of you,  to give us some direction.
We can’t thank you enough for responding to us today, giving us guidance as to how to proceed, and above all, suggesting how we make a property safe for our remaining dogs.  I think you are a special guy and can’t thank you enough.

Mr. Polkabla

I am grateful for your sincerity and greatly appreciate you taking time out of your schedule to help us out. I cannot thank you enough, though we are a small community we have a lot of drug issues that need to be dealt with. We have a limited budget that requires strict monitoring therefor we make it work with what we have.  With people like yourself and your company hopefully we can all come together and make the world a better place. I see you take great pride in your profession just as we do in serving our community and making it a safe place to live and raise the younger generation. Although the crime and drugs cannot be prevented, we will put a huge dent in the epidemic and not stop until our job is done. Thank you again for helping.  I will be in touch now that i have you as a contact, stay safe.

Michael…  I can’t even express how grateful and lucky I feel to have found you.  We would have been in such a mess without your guidance and expertise.  I truly appreciate you helping make our home safe again for us and our baby!

“I have use BioMax over the last 8 years, six of that being with D.R, Horton and during the last two years with Del Valle Homes. Recently we became Renovo Communities.”
Michael A. Polkabla is very professional and will tell it like it is, right is right and wrong is wrong. When we have been in tough positions, Michael was always willing to speed things up by putting a rush on it so we good get the lab result back as soon as possible. If we had a problem he told us we had a problem, what ever the situation was we knew we could count on Mr. Polkabla telling us exactly what we had and what we needed to do to correct it. Not everyone in the Bio industry is a C.I.H. which I required on any mold job or any job that could go to court. I have never needed him to go to go to court, because we did it right. I have used him in past and I would use him in the future, he is a good honest man that you can trust to give you factual information.

We have been in the environmental industry for 20 years. In my 20 years I have never met a more technically qualified firm that also has the ability to understand a project and utilize a common sense approach. BioMax is pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone who has environmental consulting needs.

Michael has been an excellent colleague with whom I’ve communicated with. Michael and I share projects similar in complexity, although in the same niche industry of heavy civil construction for a common client.  As a fellow safety professional, over the past several years, Michael has willingly shared dilemmas and effectively discussed challenges faced in our industry.  I feel like we have collaborated well in overcoming common challenges shared between our clients, and I look forward to working with him to produce some cutting edge training seminars.  Thanks to his professional knowledge and expertise, and effective and open communication skills, he has helped our team avoid what would otherwise have been significant problems.  I highly recommend Michael and his professional expertise and congenial approach to business.
