“Thank you to our employees. Without you, we would not be as successful these 15 years. We don’t want you to ever forget how much we appreciate your hardwork and dedication!” - Clayton Blount, Managing Partners at H2O Drying Solutions.

Innovations begin with great ideas. In the year 2007, two men left the companies they were working for and the careers they were comfortable with to chase a great idea. When they recognized the great need for remediation services in the Carolinas, Clayton Blount and Lorne James did everything they could to learn the business and every task involved. Today, with more than 20 employees, H2O Drying Solutions is excited to announce 15 years of leaving their mark on the remediation industry!

At the beginning of their journey, there were challenges, but they remained resilient. The core thing that has sustained them through the highs and lows is the relationship that Lorne and Clayton share. Even at fifteen years, their partnership and friendship are strong.

“My greatest satisfaction comes from knowing that I have a fantastic, God-fearing partner. We have been going for 15 years, which is certainly the longest partnership I have been a part of.” - Clayton Blount, Managing Partner at H2O Drying Solutions

After attending all the necessary schools to fully understand the art of drying, the dynamic duo started chasing storms in various cities. It was difficult being the only two crew members on the team, but the time came when they could afford assistance. The expansion of their team began.

In this 15th year of celebration, the H2O Drying Solutions founders are grateful for their employees. The team at H2O Drying Solutions continues to surprise their leaders with their never-ending support to the company and their dedication to getting the job done. The team is well-known for contributing integrity, honesty, credibility and commitment to the remediation industry.

“I’m grateful that in a year we were lacking in staff, the team stepped up and got the job done! Thank you to our team! I don’t ever want you guys to forget how much Lorne and I appreciate you.” - Clayton Blount, Managing Partner at H2O Drying Solutions.

The partners are especially grateful to Carlos Lopez, a long-time employee. Carlos is the Project Manager at H2O Drying Solutions. Whether it is writing estimates, going into the field, inspecting jobs or going into crawl spaces, he always proves to be the man for the job.

A lot of people might not know this but Carlos Lopez and Clayton Blount met in 1994, when Clayton interviewed Carlos for a position at another company. Since then, they have maintained a close friendship. They spent the next few years excelling at their individual careers, until one day, Carlos received a phone call from Clayton with a job offer to come work at his new company, H2O Drying Solutions! Carlos has been with the company almost from the beginning. Over the years, he has been a true company man and demonstrates what it means to be an indispensable team player.

This has been a difficult year to navigate. The partners are grateful that in 2021 they could service all of the people who needed help, with limited staff. H2O Drying has maintained their mission statement in providing their customers with the most effective, most current structural drying methods available. This business strategy has resulted in a very profitable year for H2O Drying Solutions.

“At our 20th anniversary, we want to retain the employees we have now and look forward to growth. We hope to maintain our current client relationships and develop new ones with property management companies in Charlotte and Charleston.” - Clayton Blount, Managing Partner at H2O Drying Solutions.

H2O Drying Solutions continues to grow from strength-to-strength. The partners of H2O Drying Solutions want to thank their clients for their support during the past 15 years.
