Prochem customer is UK's fastest-growing franchise

The UK's fastest-growing franchise is storming into the disaster restoration market using Prochem Europe's technology and solutions.

Greater numbers of escape-of-water insurance claims due to record rainfall in the UK in the past year have seen an increase in the need for damage restoration companies. Kings Lynn-based Tempest Restoration has risen to the challenge, despite a consistently challenging economy. Managing director and professional cleaner, Martin King, sees proof in the figures, with his company attaining 21 franchises across the UK in just under 12 months.

Established in 1990, Tempest Restoration offers complete project management for restoration services including carpet and upholstery cleaning, wooden floor cleaning, fire and water restoration services, and contents restoration.

“Our policy is to get on site within 24 hours for a fire and four hours for a water damage claim,” continued King. “We have the latest technical truck mounted carpet and upholstery cleaning equipment required to clean even the toughest soiled carpets and upholstery, providing a safe cleaning solution. Carpets and upholstery which have been affected by a fire or flood in some cases can be cleaned. Our technical team is professionally trained to use specific products to eliminate the odour of smoke residue and bacteria to provide a clean and sanitized environment. We do our utmost to ensure premises are returned to pre-incident condition with minimal disruption. We also offer a protection service to carpets and upholstery so that spillages can be removed more easily, which helps with the safe control of certain harmful bacteria and germs and to protect and prolong the condition. The past year has been a very exciting time for the company after deciding to make the move into restoration franchising. The key factor in driving the business is continually researching requirements to ensure we provide the most up to date systems and services.”

The expanding business supplies its franchisees (known as branches) with equipment at start up. Included in the franchisee package is the Prochem Steempro Powerplus portable extractor and company-recommended optional Prochem Blazer GT truck mount in addition to Prochem chemicals.

“We have been buying Prochem products for years now and they continue to perform extremely well,” said King.
