What is an AdvantaClean Franchise?

AdvantaClean is the rising of star of the restoration industry, which the independent research firm A.M. Best Co. values at $210 billion. With more than 200 locations open across the country, AdvantaClean sets itself apart by focusing on being the leader in light environmental services, meaning air quality, moisture control, mold remediation and more. This emphasis on providing services that are ongoing, common and necessary means that AdvantaClean operates very differently than most companies in the restoration industry, who chase storms and insurance payments to become financially successful. AdvantaClean is guided by a code of ethics, a culture that emphasizes expertise through training, ongoing franchisee support with an industry leading call-center, and a focus on community engagement. As a result, AdvantaClean franchisees are some of the most profitable business owners in the entire restoration industry.


How much is the franchise fee?

A franchise fee for a single AdvantaClean franchise is $49,000.


What are the startup costs?

An AdvantaClean franchise is affordable to own, and total initial investment ranges from $99,650 to $231,500. AdvantaClean also supports the military and their families by offering a 20 percent discount (not to exceed $10,000) off the initial franchise fee for veterans who qualify to own an AdvantaClean franchise.


How do I make money?

AdvantaClean is unique in the restoration industry because our business model is bolstered by an industry-leading call-center that helps you win business, stay organized and provide an exceptional level of customer service. The services AdvantaClean provides are recession-resistant, ongoing concerns for home and property owners, so this business has high-profit potential in any area of the country.


Do I need to have an office?

Our franchise model is designed to keep immediate costs low for franchisees who are getting started in their businesses. Our call center does away with for the need for an office, as our team works on your behalf to win business, make sales calls, interact with your customers and ensure that the customer experience is positive to help you win referral business, as well as to establish your business as the most trustworthy restoration company in your community. Once your business scales regarding customers, jobs and brand recognition, many of our franchisees opt to rent office space and hire sales teams and new crew members to further capitalize on the demand for your services.


Do I have to have restoration experience?

No. Many of our franchisees had no experience in the restoration industry before joining our franchise family. Our training is robust, and our ongoing support makes this an easy business to master. All you do is take your existing leadership experience and apply it to our proven business model. Have questions about skills, experience or how the owner role works?

How many employees do I need?

The number of employees you’ll need to begin operations is minimal. Many franchisees opt to hire one or two technicians to start, adding more as the business becomes more established. We work with you to ensure that as your business grows, you scale up wisely and effectively.
