On October 7, 2012 at 10 a.m., the Rainbow Disaster Team of the Tri-State Area will literally open the flood gates and unleash several hundred gallons of water in a relatively quiet suburban neighborhood. According to a press release, Jason Brown, President of Rainbow International of Fairfield, drew the shortest straw and it was that which determined his home would be the one flooded for a demonstration video the team is filming this month.

All within the same day, the Rainbow Disaster Team will be on the scene to hose down and wreak havoc to the recently finished basement only to then thoroughly clean up the mess with rapid structural drying techniques.

With their advanced drying restoration program, the cleanup of the home will be done in just a few hours with the team focusing efforts on removing the excess water immediately so that mold never has a chance to populate. Using several high powered truck-mounted vacuums, the Rainbow Disaster Team will remove water from the walls, ceilings, steps, carpets, furniture, wood trim and subfloor. The team will then set up a variety of high velocity air movers to aid in the evaporation of existing moisture-laden air. To reduce the humidity within the home, low grain refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers will be set up through the home.
