Our history starts from humbling beginnings, rising out of the Great Flood of 92’-93’ and a father of three whose dream was to create a business to support his family.
The Great Flood affected a lot of states including St. Louis, Mo. where our founder, Joe Tumminia, started one of the first companies in our area to specialize in water damage restoration. Joe was concerned that after the flood calls would slow down but in the following years calls continued to come in for regular plumbing related issues that caused water damage.
In the early 2000s, Joe’s son, Tony, started to work closely with the water restoration division. This is where Tony gained valuable hands-on experience, leading to a partnership in 2006 and the birth of The Flood Team as a trademarked company.
Just three years later, the company went 100% paperless and developed an app called The Flood Team Management System. Shortly after, we survived two hard-hitting events — a direct hit from an F4 tornado and the passing of Joe Tumminia, our founder.
In 2018, we revolutionized the industry by creating a business model which combines the efficiency of the digital management system and our unique operating process. More importantly, by started to open franchise locations throughout the United State, we continue to pioneer the water restoration industry!
