Restore More

A Rainbow International Restoration franchise is more than a business; it is a way to help people recover from loss by restoring value, stability and peace of mind. With services in mold removal, cleanup, water damage and fire and smoke damage, it’s an industry less affected by the economy, and more driven by claims.

At Rainbow, our focus is on helping our franchisees meet and exceed their financial, professional and personal goals. As part of the Neighborly family, our expertise lies in providing the right tools, support and environment to turn those goals and dreams into a reality. We see it happen every day. Why shouldn’t it happen to you?
