As soon as the crisis hit, PuroClean set up daily national coordination calls with his 60-person team conducted seven days a week. Steve said, “This allowed us to discuss the challenges we faced and share ideas on how to tackle them. It was a way for us to get ahead of the curve as things unfolded.”

“Supporting the local community where you live and work is really important, especially during this crisis,” White says.
