March 07, 2017 // Franchising.com // PHILADELPHIA - Due to the more than 45,800 water and fire damage claims in Philadelphia metro area per year, PuroClean has announced plans to add four new franchises in the market to support the enormous volume of claims.
PuroClean - one of the nation’s fastest growing property restoration franchises—is flying a team of company executives into the state for one event with two separate time slots to fulfill a special mission. At the mobile discovery day event, aspiring entrepreneurs interested in responding to this unprecedented demand have an exclusive chance to meet PuroClean’s CEO and Chairman Mark W. Davis and franchise owner, Phil Peters. Davis, who took the reins of the PuroClean in 2015, brings with him two decades of experience in restoration.
The event will be held at the Sheraton Valley Forge, located at 480 N Gulph Road in King of Prussia. The first session will take place at 10 a.m., while the second will be at 1 p.m.
“We’re in the business of responding to crises. From big to small jobs, the Philadelphia area is looking at 103 water damage claims and 23 fire damage claims a day,” Davis said. “The dire need is there in the numbers, and that is why PuroClean is looking for the go-getters with the same quick-to-help mentality that Phil has. We have a concept with immediate business, and we know we can become the go-to solution for the Philadelphia community with the help of great local entrepreneurs.”
PuroClean is concentrating on developing a few select markets nationwide where demand for restoration services is high. The company has more than 230 locations in its franchise network and projects to add nearly 60 new franchise offices this year.
Davis noted that while many people associate cleanup and restoration with large-scale natural disasters, a significant share of service calls stem from common household and business mishaps – such as overflowing washing machines; freezing, bursting or leaking pipes; mold growth that ensues after a water loss; and kitchen fires. Water damage is the second most frequently filed insurance claim in the United States, with more than 14,000 people experiencing a water damage emergency at home or work each day, according to the American Insurance Association. In fact, the restoration industry is $188 billion strong. Each year, PuroClean performs thousands of jobs throughout North America, providing restoration services from common household mishaps to large scale disasters.
