“My entrepreneurial spirit could not stand idle with today's unprecedented challenges. I knew I had the will and could find a way to help. As we investigated options, we saw several companies claiming to disinfect against this horrible virus, but most of their claims fell short. At the end of the day, as a mother and wife, I knew I could not send my family into an environment that I wasn’t certain was disinfected. And I'm not ready to trust just anyone to secure my family’s safety. With PURIFIED, I know they’ll be walking into a safe space."
