About T.A.C.T. Cleaning Services
T.A.C.T was founded by former police veteran Matt Lovasz. Matt was also a former master franchise owner and master instructor in the biohazard industry. Matt has been featured on the A&E show Hoarders on multiple episodes.
After building a very successful business in the biohazard and hoarding clean up industry, Matt decided to start T.A.C.T using everything he had learned in his police and biohazard careers and improve on them to create the ideal crime scene clean up franchise.
At T.A.C.T we use proprietary chemicals and the best training to be the most reliable biohazard and hoarding clean up company in the industry.
PuroClean helps families and businesses overcome the everyday setbacks that can happen in the home or office—a pipe bursts, a dishwasher overflows, or more seriously, a fire or storm damages a property. Situations like this can, and do, arise at any time, making our business constantly in demand. Franchise owners manage a crew to do the work, spend their time marketing the business, and establish relationships with the insurance agencies that drive business to PuroClean.
