As a disaster restoration company, we play an integral role in helping families and businesses return back to their daily lives and routines after disaster strikes. From fires, water damage, sewage backup or mold, our job is to ease the transition back to their normal activity. Rainbow Restoration's reputation has always been to service our customers with honest and professional service in the restoration industry. Integrity, honesty, and ethics have always been principal concerns of mine, and when it comes to my company, I lead by example. When I began searching for a business to buy, these three elements became the centerfold of my search. Rainbow Restoration's Code of Values was not only admirable, but a testament to the morale and heart of the company. We shape our daily interactions and operations around our Code of Values and weave this philosophy into every facet of our business. It is a living part of our company that extends well beyond just the written words that we distribute to employees and customers. Respect, integrity, and customer service prevail in all of our operations, from internal interactions to communication with customers. We all work together toward a common cause, and each of us possesses a valuable skill set that makes us unique.
