Seattle-based, 1-800-Water Damage, a franchiser specializing in water damage restoration for homes and businesses, has announced that it has signed an agreement with veteran auto sales manager Kamran Kamrava to develop a 1-800-Water Damage location serving the Valley. Kamrava anticipates a winter 2005 opening. “After working for over 15 years in the auto sales and marketing industry, I wanted to put the customer service and sales skills I learned over the years to work in a reputable, self-operated business of my own,” Kamrava said in a prepared statement. “1-800-Water Damage has a great reputation for quality service in a niche industry. I look forward to bringing this much-needed service to homes and businesses throughout the San Fernando Valley.” 1-800-Water Damage has approximately 80 locations operating throughout the United States.
