“You guys were wonderful from start to finish. David is an excellent project manager and a very effective communicator. I really appreciated how he kept me up to date on what was happening and what was going to happen. He was also very kind about allowing me to work in the space to feel better about making sure items were managed the way I wanted them to be. He is a stellar employee. All of the other employees I worked with were great too. They were all very polite and constantly offering to help me with lifting and moving. They never showed any irritation when I was in the space with them and getting in their way! The workmanship was outstanding too. I am grateful to you all for helping us through the first part of this stressful process. I would have been overwhelmed and lost without you. You are running a top-notch business and I am grateful for it!” SERVPRO of Charlottesville customer, Brooke

Washing Machine Disaster in Scottsville?

3/15/2021 (Permalink)

A woman is in the process of doing laundry in her home. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Albemarle County!

Trouble in Scottsville

When I went to put the clothes into the dryer, I was stunned to see water covering the laundry room and basement floor. The washing machine water supply line on the back of the washer cracked and caused water to flood the area. Yikes! Fortunately, a commercial for SERVPRO had just aired on my TV, and I called SERVPRO® of Charlottesville. They asked me some questions over the phone and sent a team of restoration technicians over with the hour.

I was amazed by how quickly they assessed the damage, and before I knew it, they had moved everything out of the laundry room and began the water extraction and drying process. They also repaired the supply line on my washing machine! Here is the drying process they used:

Monitor Floor and Walls

They checked the moisture levels to monitor the drying process. 

  • Monitor Floors
  • Monitor Walls

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, accelerating the evaporation of moisture.

Motel Fire in Keswick?

3/2/2021 (Permalink)

A large neon sign flashes the word, “Motel” in red light above a motel. We mitigate commercial fire damage in Albemarle County.

Motel and Hotel Fires in the U.S.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), one of every 14 hotels or motels reported a structure fire each year. SERVPRO® of Charlottesville responds to commercial fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Keswick and other parts of Albemarle County and knows that even a small fire contained in a room can cause serious damage. Our technicians are highly trained and certified to mitigate commercial fire damage.

  • Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician
  • Odor Control Technician
  • Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning Technician
  • Water Damage Restoration Technician

Sprinkler Systems Prevent Fires From Spreading

An NFPA publication shares details about selected motel and hotel fires and reports that many fires were contained due to sprinkler systems activating in the rooms where the fires started. For instance, in Nevada, a fire started when several 9-volt batteries inside a suitcase in a hotel room overheated and started a fire that was extinguished when the room’s single sprinkler activated. The report relates that the building, valued at $1.75 million, sustained approximately $15,000 to $20,000 in damage. Damage to its contents was estimated at $3,000, and there were no injuries.
