PuroClean of Miami

After reviewing the state of properties in Miami, we found that many structures frequently suffer from the risk of fire, water, and mold damage. Despite South Florida’s amazing weather, the tropical climate has commonly brought hurricanes, flooding, and storm surges that cause significant damage in the area.

While setting up PuroClean of Downtown Miami and surveying property owners, we concluded that a good percentage have been victims of property damage. Most often, they dealt with issues stemming from heavy rain, flooding, and more. Damage also came from malfunctioning water heaters or AC units in their home or business.

Ricardo’s prior history in retail banking and technology services, combined with David’s knowledge of the construction and general contracting industries, offers the perfect blend of experience PuroClean always needs. We’re a dynamic duo who can respond to the needs of customers with care and understanding while quickly restoring properties struggling with fire, water, and mold damage in the South Florida area.

PuroClean of Downtown Miami is glad to offer services in both Spanish and English. Also, we serve the following areas: Aventura, Miami, North Miami, Sunny Isles, Golden Beach, Bal Harbor, Surfside, Collins Avenue, Bay Harbor, Normandy Island, South Beach, North Miami Beach, Fisher Island, Biscayne Point, Star Island, Miami Beach, Hallandale Beach and more.
