Fire / Soot & Smoke Damage
Fire from Fire place
Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.
Smoke and soot facts:
- Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
- Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
- The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.
Different Types of Smoke
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:
Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber
- Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood
- Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
- Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage. We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Fire & Smoke Odors
Fires leave odors Call SERVPRO North Central San Antonio at 210-899-1017
Do you recently experience a fire or smoke damage in your home? What do you do now? How will you ever get rid of that smell? OZONING! What is ozoning and how does it work? Normal oxygen (O2) is converted to O3, which is commonly called ozone. It reverts back to O2 in about an hour if the O3 is unused. This leaves the air fresh and clean because the source of the odor has been removed. There are no artificial odors so the space becomes free of odors, as nature intended. Outdoors, nature eliminates odors using UV light and O3. Indoors, most places receive very little UV light or O3 to help eliminate the odors. An ozone machine creates O3, or ozone, in a process that utilizes an electrical current. Ozone sanitizes the air by breaking down odors and microorganisms at their source. Nature creates O3 as a natural cleaning during thunderstorms, and also from the sunlight striking the earth’s atmosphere. We have all taken a walk after a thunderstorm and experienced that clean, fresh smell in the air. That’s O3, or ozone, at work. SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio also offers a service at our facility where we can ozone specific items like clothing, furniture, or anything that has smoke damage and get it smelling like new again.

Sewage Backup / Toilet overflow San Antonio
Sewage / Toilet Overflow
Toilet Overflow or Sewer Backup?
Call Today (210) 899-1017
Sewer backups should be considered an emergency since the water may contain viruses, bacteria, and other microbes that cause serious illnesses. SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio has specialized training and equipment to quickly and safely clean contaminants like sewage.
Water damage can be classified by the three types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio will inspect your home or business to determine the appropriate plan of action for the type of water encountered.
The three types of contaminated water:
Category 1: "Clean Water"
Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.
- Water from a clean source like a broken water line
- If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3
Category 2: "Gray Water"
Category 2 water is contaminated and could cause discomfort or illness. Examples include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.
- May contain bacteria and viruses
- Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated
Category 3: "Black Water"
Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
- May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
- Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
24 Hour Emergency Service
Water contaminated with sewage backup should be considered an emergency situation and dealt with as quickly as possible. SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are water damage restoration specialists with specialized training, equipment and protective gear to safely restore your home or business.

For me.... its the water you don't see!!
The water you don't see!
Even small water damages have the potential to cause serious structural and indoor air quality issues over time.
The key to avoiding costly future restoration is to handle every water problem as a real threat to your property. SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio has the equipment, training and experience to find and dry unseen water before secondary damages occur. The proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing the damage expense during a fire or water loss. When time matters, technology and equipment must be counted on to perform. SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio will answer your call with rapid action and a full arsenal of drying equipment. Here are a few of the tools we use.
- Moisture Sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls.
- Moisture Meters are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate readings, allowing SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio to locate the moisture and monitor the drying process.
- Thermo-hygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. When armed with this information, we can calculate and create an environment most efficient for drying. When facing a contaminated water loss, it is not only important to dry the structure, but the structure must also be disinfected and often deodorized.
The bottom line? SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio has the training and equipment to help make it “Like it never even happened.”

San Antonio Water Damage -
Call SERVPRO (210) 348-2911
Flooding or “water damage” inside your home or business can occur from any type of water supply source (plumbing or nature) and is almost always accidental, random, or unexpected. However, no matter what the case may be, water damage repair losses will generally be covered through your insurance policy (with a few exceptions bases on individual policies and the issuing company)
Although flooding can be a very stressful situation, try not to panic. Furthermore, it’s always best to have a professional water damage repair expert assess the situation to determine the extent of the loss while minimizing any further damage from occurring to your structure or belongings.
Time is of the upmost importance when dealing with wet carpets, wood floors (or any other type of flooring), wet drywall, ceilings, contents, important documents, and any other items of importance damage by water. Wet materials can start to germinate mold within just 24 to 72 hours after water intrusion. Water extraction, or removing the excess water, is generally the first step when repairing water damage. Water extraction is typically followed by structural drying and/or drying contents and any other materials that were affected by the water. This process normally takes between 2-5 days.
Time is of the essence!
Response time is the most critical factor when dealing with water removal (water extraction)! The longer water is permitted to linger, the more saturation will set in. Our professionals on call staff will respond to your call immediately.
If you have a water damage in your home or business call the experts at SERVPRO of North Central San Antonio at (210) 348-2911 or visit our website at: www.SERVPROnorthcentralsanantonio.com/

Any fire can be a frightening experience, but even more so when it occurs within your San Antonio home. Not only do you have to worry about whether everyone, including pets, got out safely, but you also need to think about items lost and the arduous process of cleaning up. DIY methods are never recommended, even if you had a small blaze in a guest bedroom due to electrical issues. Instead, calling trained fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) from SERVPRO gets you proven, efficient results!
There are many working parts for any restoration project, especially involving fire damage in San Antonio. When it comes to house fire cleanup, SERVPRO has the skills and equipment to address everything, including:

All of the above elements within fire damaged homes can wreak havoc on your interior and personal belongings. The good news for many property owners is that if you act fast and hire our team, we can get in to begin fire remediation efforts as soon as possible.
Fire Damage Inspection/Assessment
The first step our specialists take is ensuring your property is safe for entry. We look for structural issues that could jeopardize the home or pose a hazard to our crew. We then look at all soiling and water/moisture presents to select the best equipment and projects for fire restoration.
Debris Removal and Disposal
Once we complete the initial assessment and project planning, we secure the property, put containment in place, and start clearing debris from your perimeter and interior. We also have boarding and tarp-up services to handle any holes in your roof or walls, covering any broken or missing doors and windows.
Did You Know That We Can Restore Many Contents and Furnishings?
With our restore versus replace mode of fire cleanup, we always try to clean and restore items impacted by smoke and grime from the fire. We sort through all objects, determining what can get salvaged and what is damaged beyond repair. It is essential to act quickly so corrosive soot, and smoke does not have a chance to contaminate items or destroy them further.
- All restorable items within fire-affected zones get carefully cleaned and deodorized.
- We inspect and test fabrics for colorfastness and determine the best restoration methods.
- Our crew uses wet or dry cleaning methods to help us achieve our desired result.

No Fire Restoration Project is Complete Without Deodorization
Pungent smoke odors are present in any fire situation, so we have Odor Control Technicians (OCT) on our team to rid your building of lingering smells.

We do this with specialized cleaning agents, deodorizers, thermal fogging equipment, air scrubbers, and more.
