A local business is helping others stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The owner of bioPURE brought the company to Asheville in May. Since then, the disinfection company has cleaned facilities that had COVID-19 outbreaks and helped others prepare to open.
"We treated like 20 restaurants for free just so people can get educated and know that this stuff that we are doing works and you can see it work," owner Matt Pencarinha said.
He said the materials the business uses to clean and protect fights germs for up to 90 days.
