Global Prevention Services Proclaims New Franchisee & SBA Financing


One of the nation’s leading mold remediation companies opens a new office in Portland, Oregon, announces Wells Fargo as their financing partner and selects Century Insurance and their industry leading insurance programs for the GPS® franchise network.

Global Prevention Services, Inc., (GPS) is an environmental services company focused on client satisfaction as their end product. The company, through its network of offices nationwide, provides water mitigation, microbial remediation, prevention treatments and construction related services to return buildings to like new conditions with superior indoor air quality (IAQ).

The company is pleased to announce that Matt Ballou and family have purchased the franchise rights to much of Oregon and parts of Washington. The GPS Portland office opened for business in September of this year and has to date completed a number of projects with excellent results and total customer satisfaction.

GPS has also announced that Wells Fargo has agreed to provide SBA financing for new GPS franchise awardees at attractive interest rates and extended terms. “This is exciting news because the finance world had bolted from franchise financing in this economic downturn,” reported Michael Himelfarb, President of Global Prevention Services. “The Wells Fargo SBA program is very aggressive and bases its finance decisions on standard underwriting practices, but also looks to new projected incomes as opposed to just historic financial performance. This is ideal for start-ups or franchises. In addition to this exciting development, Century Insurance has developed a complete and substantial insurance package for GPS and its franchises. Coverage is extensive and includes the costly and difficult to obtain Professional Liability component, yet the premium costs are significantly reduced due to GPS’ perfect project record and national buying power.”

GPS is the developer of the PureSpace® product line and process which allows the company to provide its clients with faster, less disruptive resolution for water and microbial related issues. GPS maintains a price/value advantage over its competition while generating industry leading exit testing results as documented by independent 3rd party IAQ professionals. GPS provides the only industry warranty for complete projects, fully backed by an AM Best A rated insurance provider.
