PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With no current franchisees serving the $58 million in direct water and fire mitigated losses in Portland, Maine each year, PuroClean has announced plans to add only one new franchise in the market to support this 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 a special mission on March 31st. 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 Vermont-based franchise owner Darrel Depot. Davis, who took the reins of the PuroClean in 2015, will be bringing with him two decades of experience in restoration.
The event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn/Portland Downtown Waterfront at 65 Commercial Street, Portland. The first session will begin at 10 a.m., while the second will be at 1 p.m.
“In the Portland area there are more than 4,500 water and fire damage claims yearly, and a lack of professionals to help the community with the aftermath,” Davis said. “We’re looking for local entrepreneurs to help us help Portland. It’s imperative that we expand our network to service more of the Portland market.”
PuroClean is concentrating on developing a few select markets nationwide where demand for restoration services is high. PuroClean 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.
