CHESAPEAKE, VA. – (February 5, 2022) – PuroClean, a leading restoration and remediation franchise with more than 375 offices across North America, today announced the opening of a new franchise location in South Chesapeake, VA. Led by United States Air Force Veteran and former claims adjuster Chuck Ritenour, PuroClean of South Chesapeake’s highly trained technicians will serve home and business owners with water, fire, mold, and biohazard removal. PuroClean of South Chesapeake will service the Hampton Roads, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, South Chesapeake communities, and surrounding areas.

“I have seen the necessity of a business like ours for many people in coastal communities who suffer unexpected damage to their homes, and through my experience in the insurance industry, I know how heavy this kind of loss can feel,” said Ritenour. “It’s important to me to be able to provide necessary restoration and remediation services in a caring way, offering peace of mind to my neighbors and serving as a resource to the community.”

Ritenour joins PuroClean after a decorated career of service in the United States Air Force and a professional career in the home insurance industry. A native of Connellsville, Pennsylvania, Ritenour enlisted in the Air Force upon graduation from high school. During his training, he was stationed in Hampton, Virginia. He relocated permanently to Virginia Beach in 1999 and has since called the Chesapeake-Virginia Beach area home.

When his service in the Air Force came to an end, Ritenour earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Saint Leo University. Upon graduation, he pursued a career as an insurance property adjuster, working both desk and field claims. Throughout his career, he worked for two large carriers and was eventually promoted to senior field adjuster, simultaneously serving as a trainer for new field adjusters in his region. In his decade of insurance industry experience, Ritenour has seen thousands of property claims responding to severe weather events across the country. With the opening of his new PuroClean business, he will continue to proactively train and lead his teams, serving home and business owners across the Chesapeake area.

“We are proud to welcome another veteran to our PuroClean family and know Chesapeake residents can count on Chuck and his team to provide quality restoration and remediation services when in need,” said Steve White, President and COO of PuroClean. “This team has been prepared to restore and rescue properties in their community with compassion and respect, and we look forward to the positive impact we are confident they will have on the Chesapeake community.”

For more than 20 years, PuroClean has helped home and business owners with their restoration and remediation needs, serving communities across the United States and Canada with a network of over 375 offices.
