History Of Steri-Clean

Industry pioneer, reality TV personality, and President/CEO Cory Chalmers began Steri-Clean in 1995 while working as a paramedic in San Bernardino County. After responding on literally hundreds of calls each year resulting in biohazard scenes, he knew there was a need for this type of service to prevent grieving loved ones from performing this traumatizing task themselves.

Steri-Clean started as a garage based business utilizing his family mini van for cleaning biohazard scenes in Southern California. During the first year of operation, they began receiving calls to clean hoarders homes as well. Mr. Chalmers saw a huge opportunity to help even more people. Through dedication, hard work and determination, over the past 2 decades, Steri-Clean has grown into a large corporation covering thousands of square miles and responding to over 1,000 jobs each year in California alone.

In 2011, Mr. Chalmers retired from the fire department as a fire Captain 15 years earlier than expected. He realized his passion was with his company and changing so many lives through his compassionate cleaning service. Steri-Clean is now looking at continued growth across the nation by offering  incredible franchise opportunities with an in depth training program,  a 24 hour call center, ongoing support for franchisors, and a sales and marketing plan built for success. The Steri-Clean brand is known across the nation already due to Mr.Chalmers role on multiple television shows, keynote speaking events,  magazine articles, newspaper stories, and his role on the “Hoarders” TV show. The franchise growth is expected to explode from 2 offices to a forecasted 90 offices over the next several years! This is an incredible opportunity to get in early while territories in your desired areas are still available.

Steri-Clean Corporate Offices

Steri-Clean corporate offices are located in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Our headquarters office is situated 5 minutes from the Ontario International Airport or 35 miles east of Los Angeles International Airport. All initial training for new franchise owners will take place at this location. Our corporate office is over 8,000 sq. ft. and equipped with a training classroom with built in projector and surround sound, large conference room, a 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse with mock crime scene training rooms and all office staff. You will find that this is not just a home based, fly by night franchise being offered, but a well established corporation that is dedicated to helping you succeed.

Training Room

Our formal classroom is perfect for large training sessions which we provide not only to our franchisees, but to public agencies as well. This multi purpose room also houses the meetings for the San Bernardino County Hoarding Task Force each month. The classroom seats 24 comfortably and has a ceiling mount projector and surround sound for presentations and lectures. As a potential franchisee we hope to see you sitting in here very soon!

Conference Room

Our conference room is comfortable and functional. With seating for up to 14 people, most of our meetings with public agencies, customers and potential franchise owners, are done in style and comfort. The conference room is also equipped with a ceiling mounted projector allowing us to make presentations to potential customers effectively without needing to transition to our classroom.


Our 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse is perfect for storing all necessary cleaning supplies and keeping our work vehicles inside. We also perform all automobile decontamination in our warehouse when we receive calls for vehicles affected by blood and/or bodily fluids. Our warehouse is equipped with a large walk in freezer for storage of all biohazard that comes back from scenes which we clean. The warehouse also contains separate areas for storage of donation items and electronic waste which we recycle 100% of as our belief in helping save our environment from unnecessary waste. In fact Steri-Clean recycles hundreds of thousands of pounds each year!

Words From the Director

CEO / Founder


Hello prospective franchise owners. I want to tell you a little about how I got to where I am today. I started this company while working as a paramedic and seeing the grief stricken family members left to deal with the overwhelming task of cleaning up the remains of their loved ones. I was unable to accept that there was no help available for them and refused to see another family left with the traumatizing chore.

in 1995 I opened Crime Scene Steri-Clean out of my garage and it has since grown to a multi million dollar company because of dedication and hard work by myself and my increidbly talented team. In 2011, I retired 15 years early from a succesfule career at the fire department after realizing that this is where my passioin lied. I now am focused on educating as many people on both hoarding and biohazards and to provide the same caring, compassionate, professional service that we offer in California, all across the United States.
