This company is a horrible.i had a large mess in my kitchen and dinning room . Also in my living room a small space . There was cat *** to be cleaned . My bedroom was covered with debris .

They were supposed to clean the mess on the floors in kitchen living room and dining room and my bedroom . They went through all my stuff in the kitchen and dining room and throughout at least $10000.00 worth of stuff. $400.00 worth of solar panels was one . Things like medication things handed down from my great grandma All our bills and tax papers dishes Food that was brought 2 weeks before we had to replace it all You get my point . I would not recommend them to clean a dog house They never cleaned my bedroom

Don't purchase a franchise

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Run. Just run. You will be deceived, lied to, bullied, and drained of your money. You'll be told there are proprietary formulas of running the business for success, proprietary chemicals/ machinery/ services/ estimating = not only false, but downright laughable. You will get no help from the home office. You will pay thousands upon thousands in your own advertising fees. There is truly no reason to buy a franchise from Steri-Clean... you can do it yourself. No one knows this company name. There's no brand recognition. Even the Hoarders show doesn't want to work with the SC founder anymore. Save your money and do lots of research.

Steriale clean or the owners name was Byron Herald came to do the job at first everything was ok workers were great very helpful. Lunch time I slipped out early and when I came back I slid in threw garage to see what's going on when inside workers were all working hard but boss wasn't around asked were is Byron one of them said upstairs thought it was funny that he was upstairs in my gram bedroom now understand this was a hoard my gram was sick she saved everything. I call his name and I hear all kinds of noise then here he comes with two big garbage bags right past me saying he's late for something so I moved out of the way but the funny thing was he put the bags in his truck not the dumpster when I questioned him he said he just forgot to throw them in. Let me skip ahead or I'll be here forever and it burns me up that someone can do this. Later that week my mom got a call from our police dept.asking if my gram had guns and she did quite a few they told us that they had information that a Byron Herald stole them along with jewelry and a lot of cash out of the house we didn't know cause we didn't know exactly what was there so they raided his place and found the cash and jewelry my mom recognized but we will never be sure wha was in those bags my mom got a forensic accountant to try and put thing together but we think he got well over 250.000 yes that number is right and they didn't recover a tenth of what he took he will probably go to prison but we will never get my grams stuff back my mom's broken over this Byron just hope I never run into you.

Are you thinking of Purchasing a Steri Clean Franchise from Cory Chalmers????? Listen to my experience……… Beware, Beware, Beware!!!!! A franchise was purchased from Cory Chalmers representing Steri Clean Inc. of Rancho Cucamonga, CA. After 7 months of operating the franchise I (Rodney Etheridge) was put in default. Meaning one or more of the franchise agreement stipulations was not followed. The default that I was penalized for this time is not spending $3000 a month on marketing. (Simple math, if the cash flow is not coming into the business then the cash flow cannot go out of the business.) Cory Chalmers offered a buyer for my franchise immediately. Wow that was fast! I was just put in default for a few seconds & already a buyer?! Cory Chalmers stated the price of $35,000 that I would sale my independent franchise for and other terms also. Why was Cory Chalmers telling me what price I would sell my independent franchise for? Why was he also telling me the terms (GIVING my equipment to the new owner)? Myself and the buyer were instructed to use Jason Power, Cory Chalmers’ attorney. Again, why were Kristen Folding (buyer) and myself not allowed to make the transaction between ourselves without Cory Chalmers inserting himself into a sale of an independent franchise? The first draft of the agreement was made and I agreed. Then the buyer Kristen Folding made revisions and I agreed. Only 2 days later Cory Chalmers and Kristen Folding signed a Purchase agreement between the two of them. Wait What?! Now the Purchase agreement Jason Power created originally for the first draft took from 2/17/17 to 3/15/17. But suddenly, a brand-new Purchase agreement was created in a couple of days? This leads to question, what was going on behind closed doors that I was not privileged to about my franchise? When did this new transaction begin to form? Who benefited from this new Purchase agreement cutting me (Rodney Etheridge) out of the sale of my independent franchise? Let’s look at the facts, my independent franchise and my franchise rights were sold without my permission for $25,000. That means that Kristen Folding got a $10,000 discount on my franchise price (set by Cory Chalmers) and Cory Chalmers/ Steri-Clean got $25,000 selling the same franchise roughly 8 months apart, for a total of $60,000. Once the smoke cleared the air, I was then sent a Letter of Termination from Jason Power. Yes, that is right terminating my franchise that had already been sold!!! And without my permission!!!! In this letter it was asserted that I used Steri Clean’s name, obtained a client, did the job and took the money. Let’s examine the facts, we will call the client “Jane Doe” for anonymity. This client contacted me while I was still running my franchise and requested a quote for a job. I went, did the assessment and sent a quote. After not hearing from “Jane Doe” for several weeks the lead was marked as a “dead lead” was the language I suppose to use. During the contract negotiations “Jane Doe” contacted me and asked if I could do the job. I politely declined and directed her back to Steri Clean’s 800 number. So, I will shorten this detailed portion…. long story short, Kristen Folding did the job for “Jane Doe”, collected the money and presumably paid Cory Chalmers for the royalties. All the while, Cory Chalmers’ attorney Jason Power whom did ALL of the Purchase Agreement paperwork, knowing the timelines-now is asserting that I did these actions. While in fact, I removed myself from the loop and Kristen Folding did said actions. It is so ironic, the very thing that I am accused of by Cory Chalmers-taking money for something that was his…. let’s see he took my money for my franchise. Wow! please visit my website for details
