Systematic and Compassionate Approach to Property Restoration

PuroClean Disaster Restoration Services of RI specializes in helping families and businesses overcome the devastating setbacks caused by water, fire, smoke, mold and other conditions resulting in property damage. Locally owned and operated, by US Navy Veteran Chris Sanford and his wife Lauren Sanford, we strive to respond to every loss with a personalized approach. We understand that responding to property emergencies is more than restoring the damage. Behind every loss is a homeowner who needs consolation or a business owner who is struggling to minimize downtime.

PuroClean Disaster Restoration Services provides 24 hour emergency service to all of Rhode Island and neighboring South Eastern Massachusetts communities. Our average "on-site" time is approximately 60 minutes, and we work directly with your local insurance provider. Call us at 866-787-6474 (24 Hour Response) to schedule a visit.

Our team of claims specialists and technicians are all thoroughly screened, insured and trained in utilizing the latest property damage industry techniques. We know how to get the job done right. And more importantly, we know how to make a disaster transition as smooth as possible with a high level of skill and compassion. We understand that communication during a property emergency is invaluable. PuroClean Claims Specialists and Tehnicians pride themselves in providing not only great emergency service, but also providing customers with a verbal plan prior to work and consistent updates on progress. Call us at 866-787-6474 (24 Hour Response) or email us HERE with any questions.
