Local company to send aid for Hurricane Harvey in Texas

MCDOWELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - As Hurricane Harvey approaches Texas, a locally-based disaster recovery company plans to help.

AdvantaClean, headquartered in Huntersville, is working to send both machines and manpower to help Texas residents that are in the storm's path. AdvantaClean specializes in flood clean up and mold repair.

""Our sole purpose with our Emergency Rapid Response Teams is getting to those people as quickly as possible to initiate clean-up operations," said CEO and founder Jeff Dudan.

Dudan said that flood water can carry dangerous contaminants, so it's important to get water out of the affected areas immediately.

They also plan to help affected residents in Louisiana.
