14th Annual Golf For Kids Sake Concert & Golf Tournament

Community 14th Annual Golf For Kids Sake Concert & Golf Tournament SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock presents Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lubbock with a check totaling $56,775!

The 14th Annual Golf For Kids Sake Concert & Golf Tournament was a HUGE success this year. We were so blessed to have been able to host the Kickoff Concert again this year featuring The Mike Pritchard Juke Box Band. With dinner from Chopped & Sliced BBQ and live and silent auction items, the event was very well attended. The golf tournament was so much fun on May 3rd at Rawls Golf Course. With 2 full flights it was a long day. The morning flight was absolutely perfect in regards to the weather. Lunch from J&M BBQ was mouth watering and the tee time for the afternoon flight went off without a hitch, that is until a stray cloud dumped some rain and hail on the golfers and play had to be suspended until the weather passed. Approximately 14 teams stayed to finish the round and had even better weather than they when they teed off. After all the calculations were done, SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock was able to present Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lubbock with a check for $56,775! Plans are already being made for the 15th Annual Golf For Kids Sake events, with the Kickoff Concert planned for April 24, 2020 and the Golf For Kids Sake Tournament to take place at the Rawls Golf Course on May 1st, 2020.

Out in West Texas, you never know what you can expect when it comes to weather. Each day is different! Unexpected basement flooding may occur and SERVPRO® of Southwest Lubbock is here to save the day. SERVPRO® provides expert clean up and restoration for your floors.

Hard floors, such as tile and wood, are most prominent in a home nowadays. The only downside is the extreme danger when these floors get damaged. At first glance, these damages may not be as apparent. Overtime, however, the water can soak into the soil and create build up which results in more damage.

Every water disaster is different. There is no telling on what a “typical” flooding damage looks like. Our team works together to inspect and assess damage as quick as possible. After doing this, we begin the water removal/extraction process. This entails using powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons of water from your property. Then, we will dry and dehumidify the water damage by checking the moisture levels to monitor the drying process. Once cleaning begins, odor removal and deodorization is vital. Depending on the scenario, we may use antimicrobial, antibacterial, or disinfectant treatments to clean your property. Restoration is the final step of the cleaning process. This means we restore your home to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs such as replacing your floors or major repairs such as reconstruction to multiple areas in your home.

Our water removal and cleanup process also provides validation and documentation that your property is dry giving you peace of mind for the future. SERVPRO® is faster to any size disaster, highly trained in water damage restoration, and we use advanced drying equipment.
