August 18, 2008 // Franchising.com // - St. Louis, Missouri USA ...Stratus Building Solutions, a St. Louis-based franchisor of commercial cleaning franchises nationwide, has donated a truckload of environmentally safe cleaning products and equipment to help people and businesses displaced by devastating Mississippi River floods in Missouri this summer.
Dennis Jarrett, CEO, and Pete Frese, President, contributed the "green" cleaning products to disaster relief authorities in St. Charles County working to help residents and business owners restore property swamped by flood waters in July.
"It is heart-wrenching to see so many businesses and people working to restore their lives to normal after being displaced by the flooding," said Jarrett. "We hope Stratus Building Solutions' provision of environmentally safe cleaning products to St. Charles County's continuing relief effort helps make a positive difference."
Tens of thousands of people and businesses in the Midwest were impacted by Mississippi River floods in July which, when waters finally receded, had coated homes and commercial property with mud, slime and debris.
"Most people don't know how difficult it is to restore a property to a clean, sanitary condition after it has been flooded with river water, dead fish, snakes, insects and debris," said Frese. "It is a really challenging task, and our hearts go out to everyone affected," he said.
