“We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated individuals at the PuroClean Home Office, who work tirelessly to help budding entrepreneurs achieve their dream of opening a business that enables them to work as a servant leader within their local community,” said Steve White, President and COO of PuroClean. “Last year was a difficult one for us all, but the onset of COVID-19 uncovered a true need for a brand that offers a unique approach to both product and service within the restoration and remediation industry. We are grateful that PuroClean was able to move swiftly into action despite the pandemic, leveraging our expertise to help our franchise owners make an incredible impact on home and business owners in the communities they serve. We are proud of what we accomplished in 2020 as we continue to focus on our philosophy of servant leadership, extreme ownership, and active collaboration.
