The company has been in Gerald’s family for the last five decades. From an early age, Gerald learned the necessary tools to lead the company from his grandfather and by the time he graduated high school, he was running the business. In 2001, the Becks purchased the company from Gerald’s grandparents and quickly grew their team from two to 10 employees.
Gerald and Jessica were in search of a business opportunity to diversify their portfolio and decided that PuroClean was the perfect addition. They selected PuroClean because of the opportunity to help people in their community, and because of the quality support for franchise owners and the established reputation for being the best in the industry.
