About The Industry
By signing our franchise agreement, you are entering into a strong, recession-resistant industry valued by IBIS World at $210 billion. The combination of aging infrastructure, poor building techniques, and the increase in extreme weather has created a mold and moisture problem across the nation. This means there will always be a need for our services, even when the economy is low.
The exponential growth in the restoration industry coupled with the potential for high margins has brought increased competition to the market. But not all restoration brands are created equal. AdvantaClean is at the front of the pack, bringing our franchise owners a trusted brand, a remarkable business model, and unparalleled franchisee support. We are rapidly becoming the leading restoration franchise system in the country by merely doing things differently-doing things better.
AdvantaClean stands out from the crowd by focusing on scheduled services, including mold remediation, water damage restoration, and the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) movement. We earn our business and revenue through customers instead of insurance companies and chasing disasters. Our business model is reliable and significantly more predictable with diverse revenue streams.
OUR SPECIALTIES ARE RECESSION-RESISTANT
Our advantage is specializing in needs-based services. Our service lines are always a necessity for home and business owners. There are still mold, water and indoor air quality issues, no matter where you live, creating a significant demand for our services.
HOW BIG IS THE DEMAND FOR MOLD AND WATER REMEDIATION?
According to Water Damage Defense, an estimated 14,000 homeowners suffer water damage daily. 98% of basements in the U.S. will flood within a homeowner’s lifetime, and the average insurance claim for water damage is pushing $7,000. These statistics are staggering.
Increases in extreme weather events, like hurricanes, the epidemic of aging infrastructure, and subpar building methods have created the perfect environment for water damage restoration companies. Water damage will continue to affect millions of home and business owners every year.
Mold has a harmful effect on the structure of homes and the health of its occupants. The Indoor Air Quality movement is focused on providing homes and businesses with clean, safe, and healthy air to breathe. When a mold is present, the indoor air quality is weak, and the health of families and employees suffer. An academic report by the Cadmus group, “Valuing the Economic Costs of Allergic Rhinitis, Acute Bronchitis, and Asthma from Exposure to Indoor Dampness and Mold in the US,” lists the annual cost of treating mold-related health effects will exceed $20 billion. Mold isn’t limited to older buildings. Any home or business, new and old alike, can develop a mold problem directly contributed to building materials and construction techniques that restrict air flow.
Moisture is highly damaging to buildings, and humidity is the root cause of microbial growth. In 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published, “A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture and Your Home,” where they cite moisture as the “key to mold control.” When a homeowner finds a mold problem, they’ve also found a moisture problem and both issues need to be resolved to keep negative health symptoms at bay and the home clean and safe for inhabitants.
Your HVAC system, like moisture problems, are commonly linked to mold growth. The EPA recommends homeowners clean their air ducts when mold and moisture are present in the house. But cleaning air ducts is about more than just mold and moisture control. A survey conducted by Home Pest Control found that 84% of homeowners experienced a pest problem in the last year. The EPA recommends an air duct cleaning for pest infestations as well, opening a new need and market.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S., the first leading cause in non-smokers. An average of 20 million people die from exposure to high levels of radon every year. The EPA found that 8 million homes in the U.S. have high levels of this tasteless, odorless, and colorless gas. Increased levels of radon can happen in nearly any home and any part of the country.
