Reopening Economies = Right Time To Open A 1-800 WATER DAMAGE Franchise

As commercial buildings reopen, the owners and tenants may find damage, giving water cleanup franchise owners an opening to land new business

When we talk about “reopening,” it’s easy to limit that to getting out of the house to shop and dine or attend a concert. For businesses, however, it means unshuttering buildings that may have been empty for more than a year. Who knows what they’ll find? In some cases, there may be issues with water damage thanks to untended pipes. And that means opportunity for 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise owners to tap into whole new books of business and maximize their revenue stream.

A variety of services means many opportunities

Being ready to go when the phone rings is a hallmark of a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise ownership. That means this business is better positioned than others in the booming restoration sector to land new business quickly. And thanks to the onboarding, ongoing training and support, and mentorship from the seasoned professionals at BELFOR Franchise Group, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise owners are ready for anything that comes their way, says Tim Fagan, President.

“There’s a lot of uncertainty out there as businesses are looking at hybrid operations and other ways to get employees back in safely,” Fagan says. “The first item on their checklists is to see what shape their physical plant is in. For many, especially smaller businesses, they may not have been inside the premises for weeks or months. That means trouble if a pipe broke, or a drip turned into something more severe. They need help, and they need it fast.”

Creating relationships with similar vendors grows business

Fagan also points out that many 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise owners have been laying the groundwork for what’s happening now by creating working relationships with furniture restoration and other damage-abatement companies. That means when one person gets a call, others are invited to get in on the opportunity.

“We work with all franchise owners, but especially newer ones, to teach them how to get their name out in the community,” Fagan says. “One of the biggest reasons people buy a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise is the training and support they get from BELFOR, and because they know they can tap into a network of fellow owners to learn and grow. That also is true for their own outreach efforts as they create a network of trusted professionals in their market, all of which leads to more jobs, and more revenue.”
