Owning a Flood Restoration Franchise: What to Expect

Two PuroClean franchisees

Floods can happen at any time, just about anywhere. It doesn’t have even to be raining; sewer backups or burst pipes can cause as much damage as a torrential downpour. If you own a flood restoration franchise like PuroClean, though, you’ll get the satisfaction of helping your neighbors through such trying times.

Across the United States, floods cause financial and emotional distress when they strike homes and businesses in both small towns and big cities. According to water damage restoration industry statistics, floods are the most prolific natural disasters in the country. The U.S. has experienced an urban flooding event once every two to three days for the past 25 years.

At PuroClean, our best franchising candidates are committed to helping and supporting their communities. Property owners who have suffered water, fire or mold damage are often confused and anxious about what to do next. They look to our franchise owners for answers, which is as much of a privilege as it is an opportunity to serve. This is what our franchise owners love about being part of the PuroClean family. 

As leading property damage specialists, PuroClean franchises provide water damage restoration, fire and smoke damage remediation, mold removal and biohazard cleanup to commercial and residential customers.
