From June 7 – 10, PuroClean hosted its yearly convention right here in our own backyard at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood. Except for 2020, which was hosted virtually instead due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a major annual event that gives franchises like us a chance to gather together, discuss new ideas, meet with vendors, celebrate the past year, and look forward to how we can accomplish more in the future as “ONE TEAM”.
At the convention, our franchise owner, Carlos Niemes, was recognized for being a member of the first-ever class of PuroClean franchise owners to take and pass the Microbial Warrior class. This class is a 3 1/2 day intensive training program unlike any other in the industry. During this instruction, Carlos and the rest of the class honed their skills for the comprehensive response and remediation to situations and structures that are contaminated or suspected to be contaminated with biohazardous materials.
By being part of this program, Carlos is able to bring a refined skillset back to PuroClean of Pembroke Pines and tackle more comprehensive forms of biohazard remediation. Carlos not only learned the techniques to properly handle pathogens, hoarding, crime scenes, human waste, and unexpected death but was also required to confront difficult human elements and the psychology that goes with work like this as a part of the training. This skillset is not one that anyone wishes to have to use, but those who can perform these services do serve a very important role in the restoration industry and our communities as a whole.
The instructor from GBAC was Jeff Jones, a Certified Bio-Forensic Restoration Specialist® and a Certified Forensic Operator® with more than 46 years of field experience in Forensic Restoration®. He is a former U.S. Army soldier, former SWAT team leader, and the youngest person to attend the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. He is a past president of the Restoration Industry Association (RIA) and has served as chairman of its forensic council.
