PuroClean | Brand Spotlight Partner What is this?

Looking for a Recession-Proof Industry? This Franchise Opportunity Might Be for You.

Say hello to PuroClean, the 'paramedics of property damage.'

When a home or small commercial property becomes damaged, who restores it? Owners of the PuroClean franchise hope they're the people who'll be called on. They offer emergency restoration services for all types of damage—from fire to mold to flood/water to biohazard and more.

For its franchise owners, PuroClean says it has a lock on a recession-proof industry. After all, as PuroClean's Tim Courtney says, "When something happens to your home or business, you have to take care of it."

Founded in 1990 and franchising since 1991, PuroClean has more than 200 franchise locations. Right now in the U.S., PuroClean identifies 17 states as growth markets, including New York, California, Arizona and Florida, among others.

To get started as a PuroClean franchisee, a person will need an initial investment starting at about $161,000, in addition to having $100,000 to $150,000 liquid cash on hand. There's also an upfront franchise fee of $50,000 (veterans receive a discount).

PuroClean franchisees participate in a three-week training program, focusing on interactive learning and real-life scenario applications at its Franchise Support Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Once completed, a PuroClean regional director will visit your new franchise location to provide initial in-field training. After that, the company provides ongoing training as well as 24/7 technical support.
