    Um, one thing at a time, Richard. The whole subject is overwhelming enough as it is. But marketing really is the biggest part of the pie. You can get all dressed up, but if there's nowhere to go you're fooked!

    Averaging just one a week. Started this venture about 7 months ago.

    How many water damage jobs could you expect from a community population of just 5k?? 2 or 3 possibly?

    What do you mean? Some months you might have 1 or 2 and some months you might have zero?

    Yes.
    There is no way of avoiding water damage as a property owner. Ice makers, dishwashers, washing machine, sink or sinks, toilets, tub, hot water heater, sump pump, water spigot. It's going to happen at some point, but it's numbers.

    The more households, buildings increase the opportunity from shear numbers. You can market all you want but it's the incident that triggers a need for service. You'll need the population to drive consistent business.

    How big of a territory could you expect to cover? Possibly an hour any direction away?

    I'm focusing on a 25 mile radius of our office. 30-40 minute drive time. About 300k population.

    I'm looking into it, Bruce, thanks! We're just now adding all of the cleaning services to our business, so i'm sure it's worth the money (cheap).

    Yes one hour would seem a reasonable area especially in light population

    One a week ain’t bad at all. Keep up your organic marketing and you customer service and more will come.

    Adding cleaning services will keep the guys busy between losses.
