Dear Mell & the All Boro family,

You belong to the pantheon of support created to help Rev. Dr. Eugene Purvis and his wife, Dr. Sylvia Purvis.

This true American hero served his country during the Second World War. Drafted in his teens from a humble home where The Lord ruled, he was taken to the Island of Saipan where he demonstrated heroism, was wounded, and survived Japanese air attacks. He dared to disobey orders by bringing food to the starving women & children of that island. Such acts defined the rest of a life spent helping others. After the war, he went to college, received a PhD in Theology, became a minister in the AME Zion Church where he presided for many years, always helping the poor. His faith in God was his guiding light.

He married Sylvia, already an optometrist and they had three sons. Together, they operated a Montessori School in Freeport where they stressed character and applied unconditional love and insight to emphasize the worth of every child, regardless of race, color, or cultural background. Self-esteem followed. This helped countless children to land on their feet and follow their example. Recently both Purvises began to decline physically. They required external help. There are many people to thank for the time, love and fundraising extended to this deserving couple. Modifications, home repairs, special equipment, emotional and financial support was provided, to make them comfortable at home.

An infestation of raccoons had begun to occupy their attic. Occasionally, they wandered downstairs. Stressful, to say the least. After their homeowner’s policy would not cover the cost of this significant task, we were fortunate to locate All Boro. All Boro eliminated this dangerous infestation then generously waived a significant unpaid balance. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. It takes a village. Together, we celebrate the Purvises lifelong contributions to country and community.

Rev. Purvis passed away last week, at 97. His wife is currently hospitalized, and we pray for her speedy recovery and return home.

I can always count on All Boro to provide professional, reliable service. As the Operations Manager for a major Off-Broadway Theater in a historic building, All Boro has been able to accommodate our unique and specific needs, every time an issue arises. I am happy to say that All Boro is the first number and call when I need their services and will continue to be.”

Richard Able

Associate Theatre Operations Manager, Blue Man Group

 We have had nothing short of excellent experiences with them. We manage a portfolio of mid-rise rent-stabilized buildings in Brooklyn, and we have used All Boro primarily for their service of cleaning out our buildings’ compactor chutes. The results of their thorough work have spoken for themselves. Furthermore, All Boro truly answered our call in a time of need when a radiator sprung a leak in our office’s basement that caused significant flooding. We can’t thank them enough for guiding us through that crisis. And we would not hesitate to recommend All Boro to any peers in our field or anybody else for that matter.”

Dane Barkin

Manager, R & C Management

 We are so grateful to Mell and his team for taking care of us after a disaster in our basement. No one can be prepared for the unexpected, but when you know you have someone taking care of you, who is an expert in their field, it makes a world of difference. Mell was always available to answer our questions, after hours and on weekends, and held our hand through the entire process – removal, cleanup, insurance claims, it was all taken care of. When everything seemed like it was falling apart (because it literally was), we felt confident that it was being handled, and more importantly, handled the right way. He treated our house like his own home, and we cannot thank him enough for being our family’s advocate in our time of need.

Mallory & Kevin Kerley

“I have known Mell through the New York City and Long Island Networking circuit for several years and have cultivated a healthy business relationship. His wealth and knowledge of construction, property maintenance and remediation is endless. What makes All Boro so special and unique is that Mell started the company with nothing and turned the company into a large first class operation and success.

When our work gets done we can sleep at night knowing that Mell is getting our job done the right way and by the proper codes and standards. All Boro is a company you always want on your team.”

Mike Newman

Director of Operations, Standard

Dear Mell,

I would like to thank you and your men for the hard work and dedication that was portrayed in order to complete our project. You guys did a wonderful job. I will keep you in mind when other projects come our way. The end product was fantastic. I appreciate all your help along the way during this nightmare of a situation. Thank you again.

Mike Konstantas

Vice President

Dear Mr. Goldman, More than one year has passed since we engaged your company in the horrendous job of clean-up after a fire that occurred on the 9th floor in August ’03.

The service you provided was done quickly, efficiently and with extreme sensitivity to the elder/handicapped people who live in our development. Even when you were not on-site, you were always easily reachable. That asset in today’s business world is definitely a plus. In addition, your guidance, in terms of the importance of mold control and elimination, was illuminating and truly helped us in making the right decisions during the clean-up process.

I would highly recommend your company to anyone in need of your services. To have found a company that really handles the job, communicates well, is knowledgeable and friendly, is a rarity.

Thank you for making us whole after the trauma of the fire.

Webb & Brooker Inc. has had a long-standing solid relationship with All•Boro for the last 15 years, and that relationship will continue. In that time, Mell Goldman and his team has provided service for several of our buildings in many ways. All•Boro responded to an emergency fire situation that effected several apartments. They provided the fire restoration for the apartments and a full reconstruction of the apartment where the fire started. We have called on All•Boro for chute cleaning services, painting services and apartment hoarder clean-out services and have never been disappointed. I have found them to be 100% reliable, reasonably priced, and quick to respond. I highly recommend Mell and his team for all your remediation and construction needs.

On-time, on-budget, reliable, caring and professional. Words not usually associated, as a group, with the home contracting industry.  But, Mell Goldman and his team at All Boro represent all of this and more. They are a group of professionals that have taken on and completed a number of projects at my home. 

All the them have combined to improve the appearance, functionality and, ultimately, the value of my home. From siding to leak repair, from windows to roofing and gutters, the All Boro crew continues to over-deliver on their promises, leaving the work site in better shape than when they arrived. Without reservation, they have my recommendation and support.

“I would like to give a huge THANK YOU for ALL BORO  & their entire staff, for providing the upmost service.  As Facility Manager of St Vincent de Paul Residence,  we pride in providing great attention & care.  All BORO understood are values and were determined to deliver.  I would definitely recommend ALL BORO to all who really care about their property.”

Ricardo Ramirez

Facilities Manager, Archcare San Vincent de Paul

A client of mine was in a bad fix and called another contractor to make the necessary repairs. Their cost was quite high, so I recommended that they call Kelly Coventry and the team over at All-Boro.

They couldn’t have been nicer to my client who is a senior citizen. My client felt at ease the minute Kelly reached out to her. When it came to the work that was done, it was done meticulously, quickly, and at a far more reasonable rate than the first contractor. Thanks, Kelly… the work you did truly was life-changing. I can’t recommend Kelly and All-Boro highly enough.

Bill Donofrio

“Mell and his entire staff at All Boro have consistently provided excellent work and service to my clients. Mell’s attention to detail along with his sincere desire to help allows me to very comfortably recommend him to my network of companies and friends. Thank you!”

 All Boro is a stupendous company. They did everything they said they would and more! If All Boro could not come they informed me in plenty of time, I never had to sit around and wait for them. They ALWAYS showed up on time. They left my home clean and neat everyday! They were absolutely wonderful I have no complaints. I can not thank All Boro enough for what they did. I would recommend them to everyone! Thanks All Boro!

Caryl Katoff

We would think you would want to continue recommending Mell to your clients. We were extremely satisfied with his efforts on our behalf. Thank you for recommending Mell Goodman of All Boro to do the repair required on our sidewalk at 185 Ferncroft Rd, Mineola, NY. We had to have 7 squares removed and replaced, some with tree roots involved as well. Mell is a professional who was involved thru out the job. He was responsive and kept us aware of the project schedule and progress, culminating with our meeting with him for a walk through of the completed job. Mell even took and supplied us with pictures showing the before and after of the project.

Ann & Bill Doyle

“I contracted All Boro to do some work on my home after experiencing water damage and wanted to let you know that I was extremely happy with the results of your company. The quoting process was fast and easy, the work crew was on time every day and efficient in completing the job. I was very pleased with the quality of their workmanship and there were no unpleasant financial surprise costs during the process.

I recommend All Boro to family and friends and would absolutely use them again. Great job all around!”

Rob Basso

All Boro has just completed a renovation in a townhouse I recently moved into. The renovation included a new bathroom, painting, redoing my bannisters, replacing doors, and various electrical and other projects. The entire project was done professionally, and beautifully. The outcome was truly amazing. What was also terrific is that I felt I was listened to and my opinions were respected. I was always kept informed about how things were going and made aware of any issues.

One of the best things was that they finished on time and the cleanup was fantastic. You would not know they had been in my house. All in all, I would highly recommend All Boro for any renovation.

Marla Block

All Boro Cleaning Services has been cleaning for us since July of this year. Although this interior of our building is only four years old, it was starting to look very run down due to poor performance of our past maintenance people.

Meeting with the representative from All Boro was very refreshing. We could tell that they really took pride in their work. As soon as they started cleaning for us, our building started looking new and well cared for. They recently stripped and waxed our floors, and they came out looking great. The two women that clean for us are very polite and careful. They are extremely reliable, and are always agreeable to do any extra cleaning that we need. Anytime we have called the office they have been very pleasant and helpful.

I feel very confident in recommending them to anyone that needs a cleaning service.

All•Boro completed two jobs that I was directly involved in and one indirectly. The first being the makeover of our home kitchen, the second a recommendation for a buildout of an apartment for snowbird friends and the third a redo of the bathrooms at the AHRC Work Center in Freeport. All three of these projects were completed in a timely manner with the greatest of care and professionalism. As President of the Board of Directors of AHRC Nassau, I recently was sent photos of the completed bathrooms at the Work Center. They are absolutely beautiful! The bathrooms were in dire need of a makeover and I am sure our individuals who work at and attend programs at the Work Center will be thrilled when they finally return once the COVID-19 virus situation is under control. The makeover of our home’s kitchen from rip-out to completion was accomplished professionally with attention to detail. Yes, there were some minor bumps along the way but each time, your staff reached quickly to correct any problems fairly and equitably. Your staff was courteous at all times and always left the site clean and safe at the end of each day. The buildout of the apartment was not a job I was directly involved in but did have many conversations with the individuals who would be staying there. I recommended All•Boro to them after they visited our home and saw the work that was accomplished in our kitchen. Each and every time I spoke with them during the buildout, they had nothing but good things to say about your company and employees. I visited the apartment upon completion and I must say it was amazing to see the finished product.

You should be proud of the work that was accomplished at these three sites. I have worked as a project inspector for an engineering company and site supervisor for a construction company and know how difficult it can sometimes be to please the client. In these three cases, you did exactly that! I would not hesitate to recommend All•Boro to anyone.

President of Board of Directors, AHRC Nassau

Thank you for the great job and all your hard work.

Thank you for your patience with my project and your kindness.


To Kevin, Product manager

 My husband and I would highly recommend All•Boro for any home improvements and construction made easier. We extended on our high ranch home and we are amazed at the quality of work that ALLBORO has done. They were very thorough, always on time, and most importantly, cleaned up at the end of each working day. They also listened to our concerns, were very attentive to our needs and made some recommendations to alleviate some of the stress of the construction.

Terrence & Kim

 They are my go to company for Emergency recovery and repairs after fires. As the owner of a mid-sized Real Estate Management firm located in Forest Hills, N.Y. I have been using All Boro Inc. for 20 years. They also help me with environmental issues such as mold remediation or contamination from floods and sewer backups. They also do my periodic garbage removals from my properties, miscellaneous construction and repair work and they deal with my bed bug issues as well. I have found them to be 100% reliable, reasonably priced and they provide high quality work whenever called. I highly recommend them as a top tier Vendor for all your needs.

Joel Mandel

President, JSM Management

“I hired Mell’s company All Boro in 2011 after my house was damaged by Hurricane Irene. I have never had a more pleasant experience dealing with a contractor or home repair company. Mell and his staff were extremely professional and knowledgeable and the end results were that my home look absolutely fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family and have done so.”

Maria Damiani

“Quick and professional response to our problem. Crew was great. All in all a very good experience.”

Jeffrey M. Schwartz

Dear Mell,

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for all your help. When we had the flood in our basement, I didn’t know where to turn or what to do. Needless to say, I was “freaking out”.

Luckily, a friend gave me your phone number. When I spoke to you on the phone I literally felt my blood pressure returning to normal. You told me exactly what to do until you could arrive. You were here quickly and took control of the situation. I can’t thank you enough.

Your staff was also very helpful and the scheduling for the after drying cleanup was a breeze.

Thanks, Mel. I hope I don’t need you again, but in case I do, I’m glad you’re there!

Marcy Schwarz

Dear Mell,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You made a very difficult situation so much easier, and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with the work your company did.

When I went to my mother’s house on the weekend after that week of rain, I never expected to see 8 inches of water in her basement. I knew it was going to be a major problem to get my mother to agree to not only get the basement pumped, but also to clear out all the moldy “stuff” she had accumulated over her 50+ years in that house. My mother doesn’t like to throw anything away, and is very uneasy having strangers in the house.

I also knew it was going to be tough not only for me, but also for whomever I hired, to get my 3 sisters to agree about what needed to be done.

You were so patient with all of us. You were accessible, and answered all of our questions. Both your office staff and the men who worked at her house were very professional and pleasant. You were reliable, and always called to let us know when either you or your people would be arriving.

I would absolutely recommend you to others. Feel free to have others call me for a reference.

All Boro Cleaning Services has completed several jobs such as cleaning our compactor chutes in 2 of our buildings in Garden City, and has been punctual on his starting times and finishing times.

He has also done carpet cleaning in our building and the job was performed very well, without any delays and very satisfactory.

Michael Ogazon

Property Manager

Our home has been transformed!!! Thank you Mell Goldman and his crew at All Boro and Andy Staudt and his crew at Toral Landscape. The Indigo blue was a bit tricky to get but we’ll worth the wait! Absolutely love the outcome!

Maryanne Skinner

All work was done in a timely manner & the workers were very cooperative & efficient.

Mrs. Englander

I am writing this testimonial on behalf of the team at All•Boro. I experienced what I though was a “small flood” in January. What I perceived as a small issue was actually water damage through 3 floors of my home. Mell and his team were highly recommended to me after my insurance Company was involved and the contracted team was in place for repairs. 

The minute I met Mell Goldman I knew that he was the person I trusted to take care of my home. Mell and his team at All•Boro were impeccable with every detail from mitigation to finish. My flood was much more significant than I realized, and from inception to completion my experience with All•Boro was sincerely seamless. I would recommend this company and Mell Goldman confidently. I encourage anyone experiencing the devastation of flooding or any other major damage in their home to meet with this team. The combination of professionalism and comfort is what sets this company apart from the rest. During a time where your home is in complete shambles and disarray, you can trust this team will expedite the job and ensure that you are a priority. All•Boro was fair and clear in their pricing. I would trust Mell to do any further renovations in my home and I recommend him with the utmost confidence.

Maryann Langer

I have nothing but praise to offer All Boro. My oil tank in my basement was compromised which caused an oil leak under the basement floor which caused damage. All Boro came in to do the remediation and install a new oil tank. Their service was prompt and the gentlemen who did the work were very professional. Again, I am so grateful to them and they receive FIVE STARS for their service.
