Effects of Smoke Damage

When it comes to smoke damage, don’t wait! The longer the smoke and soot stay in your home, the worse the effects could be on your home. Some of the effects of smoke damage are:

  • Long-lasting odor that lingers after the smoke has been cleaned up. Smoke and soot can get inside porous and non-porous surfaces, making it nearly impossible to clean up completely without the help of professionals. If it’s not removed properly, the smell can linger for months or sometimes years.
  • Stains and discoloration on a variety of surfaces. Depending on how long the soot was left in your home, you could be faced with a number of stains and discoloration on your furniture and appliances. While some stains can be removed, others may be permanent.
  • Damage to walls and carpets. Even if it looks like the soot was completely removed, it’s possible that some smoke and soot got behind walls and under carpet. If this happens, the only way to completely restore the damage is to replace the contaminated item. The experts at Rapid Restoration can determine what can be restored and what needs to be replaced.

Is There a Lingering Smoke Smell in Your Home?

If you’re tired of smelling smoke in your home, whether because of a house fire, a neighboring fire, or a wildfire, we can help deodorize and repair any damage! If you have any questions about our services or are wondering if Rapid Restoration can help you, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Call Rapid Restoration


Rapid Restoration helped me with a biohazard situation. One of my best friends took his life with a shotgun and I needed a company to come out and take care of the aftermath. I sent out several emails but Rapid Restoration was the only company to respond back to me. They called me within a few minutes and I was able to set up an appointment for the following morning. The best part is that they showed up ON TIME! Thanks to Rapid Restoration, my friend’s family was able to go inside the home and not be horrified. I give Rapid Restoration my highest recommendation!

I’ve used Rapid Restoration DKI numerous times on my residence and a rental property that I own. I’ve always had courteous, professional treatment. They were very responsive to my requests and provided accurate, timely estimates. I was most impressed at how quickly they were able to respond to issue that required immediate attention so that damage did not reach other areas of the home. By definition, this company is responding to homeowners who are in dire straits, and yet I always felt like I was treated fairly and they provided a value service.

This company helped us out when we didn’t know where to turn. We had a sewer back up and there was raw sewage everywhere… A friend had said to call Rapid Restoration, so we did. And I am so glad we did. Not only were they at our house in about an hour, but they started the clean up right away – on a weekend night! They proceeded to tell us what the problem was, and what they were going to do to fix it. They were a great bunch of guys and the communicated very clearly to us throughout the whole process. I am very impressed with their workmanship. Having a sewer backup is one of the worse things that can happen in your house. I am so thankful there is still such a trustworthy and hardworking company you can contact to help out in such a predicament. Thank you!

This is the 2nd time we’ve used DKI Rapid Restoration. On July 12, 2017, a tornado hit Forest Lake and a 15 ton tree fell on our home and basically split our home in two. We were in shock and really did not know what to do. Our bedroom and sunroom were open to the sky, had insulation, sheetrock, glass and debris everywhere. We called DKI and they responded quickly, took the stress off of us and took control of the debris removal, cleanup and helped us work with insurance after this devastation. Chad, Ryan, Randy were excellent – professional, courteous, ongoing communication/updates and incredibility knowledgeable. They put down floor protection throughout the house before they started hauling out the debris. They helped us sort out what could be salvaged (and not) – it was laid out and organized in the garage so we could easily see all of our belongings. It was also so nice not to worry about all of the different subcontractors and work that needed to be done. DKI coordinated it all – debris removal, tree removal, dry-cleaning (all of our clothes were covered in insulation), jewelry cleaning (I had 85 pieces of jewelry – all covered insulation), dumpster rental, etc. They also boarded up the side of our house that was open to the elements. All of this work was done in three days! I am so thankful for their excellent service and work. I highly recommend them!

Rapid Restoration was quick to help me with my oven cleanup after a fire. After an emergency you want someone to be kind and understanding and their staff were all completely professional. The staff was respectful of my home and family during the cleaning, they did an excellent and detailed job and I would highly recommend their services to others.

Rapid helped me with a water damage repair in the basement of a home that we were buying last summer. They responded quickly, got the job done, and sent all the information to my mortgage company for me. I would highly recommend Rapid Restoration if you are in need of help in your home or place of business. The technicians and office staff are very friendly and have great communication throughout the process.
