Testimonials

“We had a small fire in our hot press at our home in Raheny. All of our bedrooms, bathroom, hall, stairs and landing had a light layer of soot everywhere. There was a terrible smoky smell throughout the house that we couldn’t get rid of. We called John from Rapid Response, he arrived the same day and put together a report for our Insurance Company and talked us through what was needed to sort this problem. Our Insurance Company agreed the costs and John and his guys started the next day and completely cleaned and deodorised our house in two days.

We were very happy with the quality of workmanship, helpfulness and they completed the job in the agreed timescale. We would have no problem recommending Rapid Response for Fire or Smoke Damage Restoration.“

“My rental property had a fire in the kitchen which sent plumes of smoke throughout the 3 story property.  Rapid Response were recommended by a Public Loss Assessor managing my claim.  The Rapid Response guys removed the burnt structural items, contents and decontaminated the entire house within a week.  I was worried that the smoky smell would remain but I shouldn’t have.  The house was spotless and smelled fresh and clean.  Many thanks to John, Paudie & his team for their prompt and quality workmanship.”

“My neighbours house was gutted by fire recently and as my property is attached the smoke destroyed my attic and found its way throughout my 2 story house.  John viewed my property and recommended repair and decontamination works necessary.  My insurance company also agreed on those recommendations.  Rapid Response started and finished all decontamination and removal works within 3 days to get myself and my wife back into our home quickly.  The house smells great and its as if the damage never occurred.  I would not hesitate in recommending Rapid Response ion the future.”

“I had an accident in my commercial kitchen which left a layer of soot covering all furniture, counter tops and in all kitchen units.  Rapid Response turned up to clean and deoderise my kitchen and completed the job within the day to get me back in and cooking.  Every pot, pan, knife and fork were decontaminated and my kitchen was back to normal in no time.  I was very pleased with Rapid Response’s helpfulness & workmanship.”

Isobel – Kildare

“I had major storm damage to my house in Kilkenny.  the rear flat roof kitchen was destroyed and needed major works completed.  I decided to extend my kitchen while I was doing the work.  Paul and his Rapid Response team assisted my in all aspects of the build and repair works.  Firstly they ensured that the property was fully dry and mould free before any reinstatement works started.  This was my biggest fear.  They really work tirelessly to hand me back the key to a fully renovated property.  The demolished the old kitchen, extended it, fitted kitchen units, plastered walls and ceilings, fitted a new bathroom, tiled, laid flooring and painted & decorated the entire house.  It was very convenient that one contractor was capable of completing all works to such a high standard.

Rapid Response really took the hassle out of my storm damage repairs.”
