Here are three reasons why you should consider investing in a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise:

1-800 WATER DAMAGE is an essential business

Simply put, water damage is on the rise. As a result, restoration is one of the essential businesses needed to maintain our country’s infrastructure. Not only are natural disasters driving demand for water damage restoration professionals, but also 14,000 Americans experience a water damage emergency at home or work every day, according to Water Damage Defense. Additionally, one of the biggest challenges in the industry is hiring and retaining qualified talent. According to a State of the Industry study conducted by R&R and BNP Media’s Clear Seas Research in 2019, 45% of restoration professionals are concerned about employee retention, up from 32% in 2018. Entrepreneurs can capitalize on this trend by investing in 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, which allows them to build their business in an industry that’s growing. 

“There’s a growing need for our services,” says Tim Fagan, President of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. “There’s hardly an area that isn’t experiencing problems with worsening storms, wildfires, droughts, flood and aging infrastructure. We exist to help homeowners in crisis.”
