$59 for Two Rooms of Carpet Cleaning ($134.99 Value)
Two IICRC-certified cleaners pre-vacuum each soiled area and spray detergent to lift soils from carpet fibres. A high-efficiency, truck-mounted cleaning system flushes out loosened pollutants with hot water before technicians groom carpet fibres to achieve a clean-cut look approved by Dwight Eisenhower's Cabinet members. Visits cover up to 200 square feet of carpet laid in one or two rooms. Customers should avoid treading on carpets until they are dry, a process that can take up to 6 hours.
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 IICRC certification in water-damage restoration. The crew at Rainbow International 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.
