Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Smoke Gets in Everything and It Stays There. Call SERVPRO of Charlottesville.

Even when the flames of a residential fire don’t destroy anything besides dinner, the smoke can cause damage throughout the property. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has found that smoke (more properly, smoke and soot) cause substantial damage even when the flames are confined to one portion of one room in the home. At SERVPRO® of Charlottesville, we’ve seen this kind of damage, and have helped restore all kinds of property from the damage. If a fire scorches your home and/or belongings, call us at 434-977-5850. The SERVPRO of Charlottesville emergency services are available all day, every day because smoke and soot have no off switch other than thorough removal. We arrive promptly – regardless of the size of your property or the extent of the damage – to prevent further damage, remediate existing damage, and rebuild, refinish, and help restore the rest of your home and belongings. We even get rid of the odors that defy conventional cleaning and can even overpower the aroma of paint.

Fires leave behind more than sooty streaks and piles of ash. They leave behind hazards that keep damaging your home and everything in it. Consider:

  • Smoke and soot are:
  • Frighteningly corrosive
  • Lightweight enough to travel on air currents and through the air ducts
  • Greasy
  • Odorous
  • Likely to land on areas that you thought you’d cleaned
  • Sometimes invisible (!) if they’re from protein
  • Particular – different types of smoke/soot particles require different brushes and different cleaners, and the types of cleaners and brushes vary depending on the surfaces the particles are on
  • Mold and other kinds of microbial are:
  • Voracious
  • Fast moving
  • Hard to kill
  • Harder to remove
  • Water is:
  • Incredibly destructive
  • Apt to end up in places that are difficult to access
  • A great intensifier of existing odors
