Florida-based PuroClean, which specializes in property emergency restoration services, announced plans to open a new Applied Structural Drying (ASD) Demonstration Facility.
The company said the facility is only the 17th training centre of its kind in the world.
The training centre will include a state-of-the-science flood house, a smoke and soot simulator, and a contents cleaning room specifically designed for PuroClean's integrated contents management system.
The training centre, known as the "PuroClean Academy," offers PuroClean franchise owners and their employees the opportunity to receive IICRC certification (the restoration industry's top designation from The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration) in water damage restoration, fire and smoke restoration, odour control, carpet cleaning, and carpet colour repair, in addition to other courses in business and financial management, sales and marketing.
The first property restoration training class is slated to take place in mid-January.
The ASD Demonstration Facility will also be used for the research and development of new equipment and demonstrations to insurance industry professionals interested in viewing PuroClean's competency and capabilities in property restoration.
