Working in the Water, Fire & Smoke Restoration Industry

Smoke, fire and water damage can occur in just about anyone's home and can have lasting damages that only get worse if the problem goes unsolved. Trained professionals in the smoke, fire and water restoration industry have the tools, skills and experience to have your home looking good as new again.


The smoke, fire and water restoration industry requires highly-technical and high-quality tools in order to fully restore your home. For water damage, specialists use high-powered steamers to quickly evaporate all of the excess water out of the carpet and other areas of the house to stop current and future water damage in its tracks. For bigger problems, tools designed specifically for floods can vacuum as many as 30 gallons per minute and dump it away from your house. This prevents further water damage from occurring. For smoke damage, specialized tools include foggers for removing odors and disinfecting. For fire damage, there are a variety of tools available that target specific areas of the home, so no further damage is done. Examples of these products include chemical sponges, liquid and powder wall cleaner and an air neutralizer to reduce contained odors.


Those in the smoke, fire and water restoration industry must be skilled in using the high-tech tools mentioned earlier in addition to innovative techniques about repair and restoration. One of the main requirements for professionals in this industry is a certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration-- known as an IICRC for short. This certification is standard throughout the country and gives those in training the hands-on skills and experiences they need in order to become professionals. Each course in the program covers a specific area of cleaning (from upholstery to wood) and allows students to apply knowledge and practice with tools when restoring a variety of different damages.


The daily tasks involved with a smoke, fire and water restoration professional include a detailed analysis of damaged homes and a quick application of treatment based on the knowledge and expertise gained from training. The courses from the professional's IICRC allow them to apply their expertise to a variety of unique damage problems. A professional in the industry is guaranteed to make the proper diagnosis of the damage, apply accurate treatment where needed and be able to use high-tech tools to restore the home in the most efficient way possible.

If you are a restoration specialist looking for a better opportunity, consider a Rainbow International restoration franchise. The leader in the water, fire and smoke restoration industry, Rainbow International has been in business since 1981.
