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.

Rapid Restoration was excellent to work with on a water damage issue I had discovered. They worked with me on cleaning an affected surface as well as air quality testing so we could have exact information for the best health of the home. They were able to get started the same day and were professional and wonderful to work with from the first phone call through the completion of the job…I appreciated that this team had the skill and abilities to provide information and work up possible plans from “best case to worst case scenario” then take the most fitting action. We found a perfect result for the home at much lower cost than could have been the case without such an honest exam.

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.

A few days after Christmas, when it rained here in MN. Water started to leak into our basement! After trying to keep up with the water, it was clear we were losing and needed help. When i called Rapid Restoration it was well into the after hours side of things. Chad sent two gentlemen Josh and John who were absolutely fantastic and quick acting! They were able to Isolate the water, and also took over the process of removing the water. Their follow up in the days following this mess was also on point. I highly recommend this company, they certainly saved the day!

General Manager, Chad, fully delivers for Rapid Restoration DKI customers! Employees are also top-notch, meticulous, respectful and knowledgeable. Our family has unfortunately had to utilize the services they provide twice now and both times we were extremely satisfied at the end of a negative situation for any homeowner. Highly recommended.

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.
