PHOENIX DryMAX XL Product Launch
The Phoenix Team is also very excited to introduce another industry-first with its DryMAX XL, the first XL category Ultra-Portable LGR Dehumidifier.
Not only does Phoenix have the smallest “Large” category LGR in the revolutionary DryMAX, but now we also have the smallest “XL” category in the DryMAX XL. The groundbreaking DryMAX XL removes an amazing 125 ppd at AHAM while taking up only 50% of the space of the next smallest competitive XL dehumidifier. Because of its compact size, the DryMAX XL allows restorers to fit twice the amount of XL dehumidifiers on their vehicle due to our patent-pending FiveCOIL technology.
The DryMAX XL is also the first dehumidifier with built-in Bluetooth technology and the first with an advanced graphical control panel, which puts all the information on the home screen in an easily understandable format. Our free DryLINK app is included with the unit upon purchase. This unit will automatically send the psychrometric data by Bluetooth to the DryLINK app or an app you may already use for your drying jobs.
Like our industry-leading DryMAX and AirMAX, the new Phoenix DryMAX XL was also designed with superior stacking features and easy service access. Our patented FiveCOIL Design, which includes our micro-channel condenser, allows the featherweight DryMAX XL to pack a knock-out punch on drying performance every time.

Fight Summer Allergies by Cleaning for Health
The impact of summer allergies
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, approximately 50 million suffer from allergies each year, making allergies the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the country. For many allergy sufferers, the early spring tree bloom is only the beginning, with grass causing symptoms starting in late spring and many more allergens still to come.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, pollen seasons last much longer than they used to, with ragweed season starting in mid- to late-July and extending 13 to 27 days longer than it did in 1995. Add to this the fact that allergens can travel hundreds of miles, and it can seem like there is nowhere to hide from allergies and their symptoms.
The enormous impact of spring and summer allergies highlights the need to create clean and safe indoor environments where allergy sufferers can breathe easy. A cleaning regimen that is focused on Cleaning for Health will help create safe spaces of escape from summer allergies.
What is Cleaning for Health?
Many professional cleaners focus on creating a clean and welcoming appearance in buildings they clean, but that alone will not help fight summer allergies. Cleaning for Health is defined as a cleaning regimen that helps dramatically reduce the number of allergens and asthma triggers in the indoor environment. That means capturing and removing many particles that are invisible to the human eye.
A ProTeam® backpack vacuum captures many allergens and asthma triggers with an advanced filtration system that culminates in exhaust filters made from HEPA media. Without a beater bar, it does not kick dust and pollutants up into the air where passersby might inhale them. Rather, its suction-only approach quickly and safely removes many allergens and asthma triggers from the air and floors.
Take your dusting to new heights
Summer allergens ride into buildings on the wind and settle anywhere and everywhere. Then they wait for the next gust or draft to send them back into areas where people live and work. To effectively tackle Cleaning for Health, professional cleaners must remove allergens and asthma triggers from every surface, including those high above the floor. New High Dusting Kits from ProTeam include extension wands and attachments to clean ducts, shelving, rafters, air return vents, and every other high place that can harbor allergens. With the right set of tools, no area is out of reach and no allergens go unaddressed.
According to the CDC, allergies cost over 18 billion dollars a year in medical costs and lost productivity. Protect building occupants with summer allergies by Cleaning for Health with ProTeam backpack vacuums and attachments.

SurfaceShield® and SurfaceShield Plus Protectant
Penetrates materials to help prevent water damage and reduce microbial growth*
As a breathable, penetrating solution, ProRestore® SurfaceShield and Surface Shield Plus use unique technology to inhibit mold growth and staining on the dry surface coating of wood, brick, and other porous materials. It also makes treated materials resistant to future water damage. SurfaceShield® protectant is highly effective as a final step on mold remediation jobs.
Unlike antimicrobial paints, the SurfaceShield barrier penetrates materials and is fully breathable, allowing excess moisture in the material to freely evaporate. The treatment is sandable and paintable and will not interfere with finishes. This makes SurfaceShield a valuable tool for almost any project in need of added protection from mold growth and future water damage.
10-year limited warranty
Both versions include a fluorescent tracer to help ensure full coverage — standard SurfaceShield is colorless and will not change the appearance of treated surfaces, while SurfaceShield Plus contains a faint white tint to track coverage. Both contain an EPA-registered preservative and are covered by a 10-year limited warranty — unprecedented assurance of product quality.
Surface Shield is ideal for use on interior framing, subflooring, wallboard, and other construction materials exposed to moisture, providing extra assurance for builders and homeowners. It should not be used on load-bearing i-joints with OSB webbing.
Surfaces with visible fungal contamination or water staining should be HEPA vacuumed and cleaned first, according to industry standards, and then apply SurfaceShield.
Economical to use
Surface Shield is water-based and economical to use — just one coat covers up to 1,000 square feet per gallon. It dries quickly and adds significant value to any construction or water damage remediation project.
SurfaceShield is a ready-to-use product and is available in economical, 5-gallon pails. Please follow label directions. Available for sale in U.S. only.

We Understand Flexibility Is Key When It Comes to Our Network’s Success
1-800 WATER DAMAGE is a leader in the property restoration and carpet cleaning industries for many reasons, but at the end of the day, our people really set us apart. The 1-800 WATER DAMAGE team has the most dedicated and hardworking group of franchisees in the industry, which we’ve achieved by following the belief that there is no “one size fits all” approach to business ownership. With unmatched corporate support and commitment, our franchise opportunities are unparalleled, and our network truly feels like a family.
We offer flexible options for those interested in joining our growing network of owners. From experienced technicians, to estimators and project managers, to established business owners, our team members have come from all levels of the industry to join the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family. No matter where you fall in your current role, we will work with you to make the transition into a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE owner as seamless and beneficial as possible. One of the primary ways we do that is by providing several paths to ownership and business models. Our conversion path to ownership and “managing operator” business model are two such offerings that have allowed us to introduce more flexibility and opportunity to our network.
Path to ownership: Conversions
Many of our team members have joined the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family by way of converting an existing business into a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE location. This is an increasingly popular path to ownership among our network because we continue to refine the process to best meet the particular needs and pain points of existing business owners. We don’t simply change the branding on everything; we give a welcome boost to your already successful business. We add value and support through additional training, home office resources, and more to ensure your conversion into a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE business is a worthwhile investment.
Business model: Managing operator
While traditional franchise ownership makes up a significant portion of our network, we’ve found that offering an additional “partnering” approach provides the support many people are looking for in order to take the plunge into running their own businesses. That’s why we developed our “managing operator” business model. The first of its kind in the service industry, this model grants the rights to operate without incurring the sole responsibility of startup costs. By innovating upon the traditional franchise model, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE cultivates success and security through partnership and empowers potential business owners by reducing their initial financial burden. With less financial risk under the managing operator model, you can feel more secure in your investment decision.
With our dedicated management staff and specialized, hands-on technical training program, we make sure you and your property restoration business have everything necessary for success. We provide the tools, expert assistance, and guidance. All we need is YOU.
