Why 1-800 WATER DAMAGE Is A Best-Bet Investment

The thriving water damage franchise is a recession-resistant business model that is ready to rapidly expand across the nation

Entrepreneurs looking to own a recession-resistant business in a growing industry should look no further than 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. For several years the restoration industry has experienced rapid growth – and with aging infrastructure, frequency of weather related disasters and the commonplace experience of burst pipes, basement floods, and more, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE is an essential business that home and property owners will continue to rely on.

With locations from coast-to-coast, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE helps home and business owners return their property to its original condition while restoring what truly matters – health and safety. Our services include emergency mitigation, water damage restoration, carpet cleaning, fire and smoke damage restoration, sewage cleanup, mold remediation and more. 

The best part? Unlike other brands in the restoration industry that are either sold out of territories or can no longer grow, our thriving water damage franchise still has plenty of room to expand and ample opportunity for entrepreneurs to capitalize on prime markets.

As a franchise opportunity, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE outshines the competition by being a part of the BELFOR Franchise Group, the largest property restoration company in the world. We not only offer our franchise owners unmatched support in the restoration industry, but also a proven business model and powerhouse training at our state-of-the-art training facility. Even better, with the backing of BELFOR, our franchisees benefit from industry relationships and access to jobs that provide them with a tremendous leg up in his or her market. 

“I’ve been to most of the training facilities that other brands in the restoration industry offer,” says Tim Fagan, President of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. “Nothing comes close to 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. We have a flood house that allows you to get hands-on training for you and your team. We have over 40 people in our home office that are here to help you succeed. We have a 24/7 call center of professionals to ensure that you won’t miss a job. All we think about day-in and day-out is how we can make our franchisees successful.”

Everyone who works in the restoration industry eventually switched from something else, myself included. However, when you have the best teachers, you have the best relevant experience and long-time resources to draw from, your learning curve is shortened. If you like working hands-on and enjoy building great relationships, it’s a great business.”
