We love our San Diego community

San Diego and its surrounding areas are home to great sources of leisure. PuroClean owner Tyrone Thomas Jr. knows how to take advantage of this recreational landscape because he was born and raised in the San Diego area. Tyrone likes to take bike rides through Tecolote Canyon, and on a nice sunny day, you may find him riding jet skis down at Mission Beach. Tyrone also likes to go scuba diving at La Jolla Shores, La Jolla Cove, and Pacific Beach. Other places suggested by Tyrone for family fun are Torrey Pines campground for camping, Kearny Mesa bowl for bowling, or Ocean Beach for fishing.  

Tyrone recommends playing golf at Tecolote Golf Course, Torrey Pines Golf Course, or the Mission Bay Golf Course. Taking scenic photographs is something he enjoys at Kate Sessions Memorial Park or Mount Soledad. Running is another pastime at Windansea Beach or Bird Rock, and his love for oceanography is enjoyed at Birch Aquarium

PuroClean of Clairemont was a dream fulfilled for Tyrone. As a native of San Diego, Tyrone always had the desire to give back to his hometown and saw the desire achieved through providing the vital service of property damage restoration. “I want to be the best Professional that there can be,” Tyrone shared, “I try to lead by example and uphold the highest standard of leadership so that my employees will achieve the same expectations and standards.”
