We all love a good celebration (check out our social media for proof). However, for us, not much is better than when we get to celebrate our clients’ accomplishments. As a marketing partner to the PuroClean franchise network, we participated in the 2021 PuroClean Convention at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. It was an excellent opportunity to interact with our franchisee clients from across the country and get together to mingle, learn, and celebrate.
While we work closely with PuroClean’s corporate marketing department, we also partner with numerous individual franchise offices in the network. In fact, our franchisee clients are located all across the United States and Canada. We’re thrilled to report that many of the franchise owners we work with received recognition at the Convention for their service and excellence in 2020.
COVID-19 has ushered in many new challenges to pretty much everyone’s lives. However, it also introduced opportunity, as the important role of restoration professionals has increased exponentially. Professional sanitation for homes and businesses and the water, fire & smoke, mold, and biohazard remediation jobs they’ve built their reputation on have become essential services for communities learning to adjust to a new normal.
Our franchisee clients have stepped up in a big way to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head-on. We could not be more proud of their efforts and the work they continue to do every day.
Microbial Warrior Class
Arguably, one of the most challenging aspects of what PuroClean does is biohazard remediation. This is such an intricate subject, in fact, that they’ve recently incorporated the Microbial Warrior program as an optional training for those who are willing to take their services to the next level. The rigorous class, taught by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, teaches participants how to safely and effectively clean the more complicated crime scenes, trauma scenes, and other biohazard locations. These disturbing situations are the most challenging aspect of what PuroClean franchises do.
Those who handle the cleanup of these devastating events need to be both physically and mentally prepared to see and handle the aftermath of severe injuries and death. As you can imagine, this is not something that everyone will or even can do. Therefore, we’d like to congratulate all the franchise owners who rose to the occasion and joined the pilot Microbial Warriors class for PuroClean, but especially our clients:
- Craig Hawkins (PuroClean of Redmond and Everett)
- Jose Pureco (PuroClean of Plantation)
- Antonio Medina (PuroClean of Wellington)
- Karen and Brian Argus (PuroClean of Stuart)
- Mario Martinez (PuroClean Disaster Services in Chicago)
- Bob Jordan (PuroClean Northwest in Lynnwood)
- Carlos Niemes (PuroClean of Pembroke Pines)

2020 Rainmaker Award

Way to step up that relentless customer service, Keegan and Tomas!
