1-800 Water Damage

What’s in a name? For 1-800-WATER DAMAGE™? The answer is “just about everything,” including the ability to provide its franchisees with an unforgettable and distinguished brand. A brand that self defines the service provided and is backed by a 20-year reputation of quality workmanship, state-of-the-art drying technology, and excellent customer service.

Who We Are
1-800- WATER DAMAGE™ is a pioneer in the US $5 billion dollar water restoration industry, known for bringing our franchisees and customers cutting-edge restoration techniques. Our memorable brand serves as a powerful marketing tool – a constant reminder of who home or business owners should call when they have water damage.
We take a one-of-a-kind approach to water damage restoration, working directly with home and business owners to ensure the restoration process is done quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction.

What We Provide
There are numerous benefits to becoming a part of the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE™ team, including:
A state-of-the-art training facility and a one of a kind flood house, one of only a handful of IICRC Certified training facilities in the country: This puts our franchise owners a step ahead of the competition. We actually flood this house during training, which gives franchisees hands-on experience in drying a wide variety of building materials before going out into the field. The classroom training provides all of the technical training as well as the administrative training that a new business owner will need to start and run their new business.
- Because the 1-800-WATER-DAMAGE ™ name is also our phone number & web site address, we provide our franchisees full use of an instant and innovative marketing tool. A Brand that self defines what service you provide (priceless)right?

- Comprehensive, ongoing training and support: In addition to hands-on training in our flood house, franchise owners receive extensive training on all business operating systems, including our innovative marketing and business plan. Ongoing support includes access to key marketing materials and training seminars via a private intranet site, live webinars, training videos and access to a dedicated franchise support staff to help them both start and then grow their new business.

The Bottom Line
After more than 20 years, the success of the 1-800-WATER DAMAGE ™ business model is evident in the fact that more than 60 percent of our current franchise owners operate more than one franchise territory. We are consistently upgrading our water restoration technology and franchise support systems because, after all; our success depends directly on the success of our franchisees!
