Who We Are

Our corporate headquarters are based in Lynchburg, Virginia.  Our services include; Fire Damage Cleanup, Water/Sewer Damage Cleanup as well as cleanup from wind and mold. Kidd’s is a Licensed Class A Contractor. After the cleanup is complete we have the skill to reconstruct your property to pre loss condition even if the damage results in a total loss. Our emergency service is available 24/7.

Our company was founded on the vision of a commitment to satisfaction and excellence. With this vision we work to not only meet the expectations of our customer, but to exceed them. We take pride in turning your negative experience into a positive experience. Each member of our service, construction, and design teams are committed to the principles of service and satisfaction to our customers. Our clients range from the main street insurance agent to the large general insurance adjuster, and each one is important to us. To help us provide better service, we are continually training our employees in the area of “customer service best practices”.

Kidd’s takes continuing education very seriously, and continually trains and promotes education at both of our locations.  Dale Allen is in charge of all CE within our organization. He comprehensively reviews all education guidelines within our ever changing industry. We have quarterly CE classes for all supervisors and managers. Education talks are held weekly on any new issues that may come up on a certain jobsite.

As part of our community, we work to support the youth of our region by supporting youth related charities and organizations. Lynchburg Little League and the Boys and Girls Club of Lynchburg just to name a few. Our future depends on the leadership of our youth. At Kidd’s we feel that it is our responsibility to promote the growth and development of family and community by seeing to it that kids have the tools they need to succeed. Kidd’s is not just restoring property in our communities; we are helping our future leaders become productive citizens.
