As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the world, PuroClean’s franchise owners across North America have jumped in as an essential business, providing an array of clean-up services and helping limit the survival of the virus, as well as the future spread.
Complementing each franchisee’s regular business offerings, many PuroClean franchise owners have stepped up to extend a helping hand, exemplifying PuroClean’s servant heart mentality and brand culture, as well as the company’s dedication to relentless customer service. Here are a few testaments to how PuroClean franchise owners and their technicians are giving back to their community during these unprecedented times:
Those on the front lines, fighting COVID-19, are risking their lives every day to help stop the spread of the pandemic and save lives. They are living and working in close contact with the virus. Many PuroClean locations have stepped up to help mitigate the risk to these first responders, offering their deep cleaning services free of charge.
PuroClean franchise owner Donnie Slagle in Gray, TN, recently cleaned 60 police patrol cars, while John Marsh in Kuna, ID, is providing complimentary deep cleaning of the cars belonging to medical professionals who are working COVID-19 test sites. Nelson Rivera, franchise owner in Parsippany, NJ, who is also an Orange Fire Department captain, has been working with his crew to provide a deep clean of all fire trucks and department vehicles.
The elderly are most at risk of getting seriously ill from exposure to COVID-19, so Jerral Ingle, franchise owner in Fort Payne, AL, has provided free cleaning and disinfecting services to assisted living and nursing homes. His recent efforts have helped protect members of his community who are most susceptible.
PuroClean owners aren’t limiting their efforts to service-oriented efforts. PuroClean’s work in restoration and remediation often requires Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and so supplies are on hand for many owners.
Some, such as Jackie and Sandra Copeland in Rome, GA, and Joe Ritchie in Sullivan, MO, have donated masks to their local police departments. Beyond donating PPE, Steve Scott & Joe Thomas in Howell, MI, have been giving back by providing food to those on the front lines, working as essential employees in area hospitals.
These are just a few of the ways PuroClean franchise owners are working to help property owners and their families across the United States rebuild during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our franchise owners focus on more than a “bottom line” and lead by example to serve their communities every day!
