Restoration is an immediate need for many homes or businesses that have experienced a disaster. These disasters can cover a variety of issues such as water damage from flooding or extensive clean-up after fires. You could be involved in helping people to cope with these disasters. Cleaning and remodeling may be necessary to restore a place to its original condition. This process can be as simple as a new carpet or lead to the full demolition of a structure. Canadian restoration franchises offer an opportunity to become part of this important industry. Some franchises tie into insurance companies, which are often in the market for these services as part of claim settlements.
