How Will 1-800 WATER DAMAGE Support Me?
Fast-growing property restoration franchise empowers entrepreneurs to thrive in business
When a property owner calls 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, they expect the team that shows up will be experts in their field – and they’re right to expect this. When disaster strikes and home or business is not safe to inhabit, time is of the essence and a high-level of expertise is required to do the job right.
While the crews that show up to restore the property damage are the most highly-trained and skilled in the industry, they didn’t begin as experts. In fact, the majority of our franchise owners had zero to little experience in the restoration industry before franchising with us. This is why 1-800 WATER DAMAGE takes training incredibly seriously, and it’s why we’ve developed a comprehensive training platform that exceeds the rest of the industry.
As a new franchise owner, you’ll understand this as soon as you set foot into our state-of-the-art training facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The entire facility is designed to help master your new business and become the expert your community will rely on. Equipped with technology-enhanced classrooms, an on-site flood house to give you hands-on training and most importantly, industry-leading experts who will guide you every step of the way, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE provides you with all the resources you need to thrive.
“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.”
We focus on business development just as much as technical expertise
You can know everything about mold remediation and how to spot water damage, but if you don’t understand the fundamentals of owning a business, it’s likely that you will hit a wall. This is why 1-800 WATER DAMAGE focuses just as much effort on business development as we do on technical expertise. We teach everything from:
- Developing a business plan
- How to set realistic goals
- How to hire and retain top talent
- How to create a culture that provides advancement for your employees
- How to build relationships in your community
- How to lead with compassion when it comes to your customers
- And more!

The jewel in the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE support package is our 24/7 call center. This team is composed of professionals who always answer the phone, and most importantly, they know exactly how to convert calls into customers. This means that you won’t have to hire an office manager when you start, saving you money as you ramp up your business. This team will also help with scheduling your jobs, and most importantly, when your customers call with a question, they will be speaking to a trained professional to ensure a positive customer experience.
