Join The US$5 Billion Year Water Damage Restoration Business
1-800 WATER DAMAGE ™ is a low overhead, recession proof, and simple to operate water damage restoration franchise. When water damage occurs, we use modern technology and equipment to dry customers' homes or businesses in just a matter of days. The majority of jobs we perform are emergency service and most often are paid for by the insurance industry. Insurance companies prefer to professionally dry out a water damage related mess and avoid future mold mitigation, then to deal with expensive rip out or a job poorly done. This and other factors make this a truly recession resistant business, which is certainly an important consideration when choosing your new business in today's economy!
When do people call 1-800 WATER DAMAGE? 1-800 WATER DAMAGE is the number to call whenever a house, apartment complex, condo, hotel or office building has any type of wet mess. All sorts of every day problems create a water damage emergency—frozen or broken pipes spew water everywhere; washer or dish washer pumps water to the wrong place; water heater breaks; toilet overflows; septic tank back fills; ceiling sprinkler system activates; water floods in from an outside source; and countless other incidents where the number to call is 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. In fact, a huge proportion of insurance claims involve water damage!
