“I am pleased and eager to bring the AdvantaClean brand to Ellis County, as well as our surrounding counties,” said Brown. “There is nothing comparable to AdvantaClean in this market, and I will be working to make sure that its well-earned reputation for innovation in creating cleaner, healthier and more efficient home and business environments is continued through our operations.”

“I love serving my community,” Brown said, “and bringing AdvantaClean to the area gives me a greater opportunity to do so, by helping protect them from different kinds of indoor environmental hazards.“
