The number of people affected by natural disasters lately is overwhelming. Among the flooding in Louisiana, wildfires in Western United States and earthquakes in Italy, there is a tremendous amount of loss and devastation happening in the world. Franchises in this industry are an important part of fixing this devastation.
- Between 40,000 to 110,000 homes were damaged and 13 people died from the flood in the South
