Smoke billows from the windows of a white 1,200-square-foot trailer home as water pours from its busted pipes, soaking the carpet as the drywall buckles and blackens. This is a regular day at Jack's House, Rainbow International's training facility and monument to long-time employee Jack White, who ascended to Vice President of Technical Services. Inside, Rainbow International technicians practice the science of restoration through an endless cycle of destruction and renewal. Given that the company's first location opened in 1981, Jack's House rivals Paris Hilton's ability to create disasters that attract disciples; people travel from more than 250 franchises in the United States and Canada to learn and maintain skills that have earned them all IICRC certification in water restoration.
The crew at Rainbow International of Macomb belongs to this network and brings hands-on education and high-pressure heat-cleaning systems to sites ravaged by fires and floods. Part and parcel with their restoration expertise, they clean textiles and hard surfaces such as grout and tile and take a particular interest in mold removal. They will present full documentation of the job's scope before starting work, and take photos before, during, and after the project is complete for your house to show to its friends.
