PuroClean of Tuscaloosa is a locally owned property restoration company offering water damage and fire damage restoration, mold and mildew removal, odor control services, as well as biohazard cleanup services to residential and commercial properties.

Tuscaloosa, known as the Druid City and home to the prestigious University of Alabama, is surrounded by various bodies of water. As a result, it is more susceptible to flooding and storm damage. Understanding that the homes and businesses in this area will need help restoring their homes from water and mold damage, our owner, Hunter Jones, decided to open an office in Northport to serve Tuscaloosa and surrounding areas. As the owner of two other reputable PuroClean offices in Mobile and Birmingham, Hunter and his IICRC-certified team promises to deliver top-notch restoration services to local homeowners and businesses.

In addition, PuroClean of Tuscaloosa also offers reconstruction services giving our customers the benefit of only working with one company throughout the restoration process. We offer local, reliable, and fast property damage restoration services serving Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama, Lake Tuscaloosa, Indian Hills, Arcadia, Druid City, Northport, Moundville, Cottondale, and Brookwood. When water or fire damage occurs in your Tuscaloosa home or business, call us to start your journey to full recovery.

We service the Tuscaloosa and surrounding metro area 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Our average “on-site” time is 60 minutes, and we work directly with your local insurance provider. Give us a call now at (205) 579-1515 to schedule a visit.
