Whether a disaster impacts a single family or hundreds, the Red Cross is there when people need our help the most. The Red Cross doesn’t just help families recover from disaster; they also prepare communities before home fires strike.

SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock teams up with Lubbock Fire Rescue to sponsor Coats For Kids Drive

Why SERVPRO SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock teams up with Lubbock Fire Rescue to sponsor Coats For Kids Drive SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock sponsors Coats For Kids

More than 16 million American children don't own a coat. That’s why for the last 6 years, the Lubbock Professional Fire Fighters have partnered with Operation Warm to provide kids in Lubbock with a warm coat.

Last July, SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock was a sponsor at the Lubbock Professional Firefighters Association’s Golf Tournament for Coats for Kids. Money raised through tournament founds went to the purchase of winter coats for the students of an LISD Elementary Campus.

Giving a child a new coat positively impacts that child’s self-esteem and self-worth. The Coats for Kids Foundation believes—and school principals, nurses, and social workers agree—that the impact on kids that receive coats from CFK is dramatic, as evidenced by heads held high, smiles, and fewer missed days of school because of illness.

Along with organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Challenger Little League, American Red Cross, Coats for Kids with the Lubbock Professional Fire Fighters Association is a valued philanthropic partner of SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock.

When was the last time you took a good hard look at the corners of your office? Can you see track marks down your hallway? How about the dust bunnies multiplying in your air vents? It’s time to call in SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock.

Lubbock had snow this winter, and even though snow looks clean, it pulls in all kinds of muck when stuck to your shoes. The wind that followed can do your office just as dirty, blowing in layers of grime between the smallest of cracks in your doorways and window panes. Best case scenario: it also blew in flower seeds and you get a lovely spring surprise, fertilized and watered by your office carpets. Worst case scenario: your new cubicle mate is splotchy spots, smells gunky, and is not great with customers.

Whether the cleaning from Lubbock weather is needed for your office carpets, air ducts, or fine furniture, give SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock a call. Here are just a few of their methods to get the gunk gone:

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets.
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types.
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry.
  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue.

SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock’s professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. A good rule of thumb would be to call SERVPRO for a professional cleaning carpet every 12 months. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today at (806) 780-6311.

Why SERVPRO Crime Scene Cleanup Support When You Need It in Lubbock If your home suffers from a crime scene and has damage, contact SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock to help with the clean up.

Homeowners in Lubbock and West Texas rarely plan a response to criminal activity on their property. Coping with all the aspects of your home becoming a crime scene is an emotional process, exacerbated by the need to arrange for cleanup after the legal authorities release the property. Our technicians have the training, the equipment, and the appropriate products to smooth this challenging process out for you. 
 
The frightening or sad circumstances underlying the need for crime scene cleanup in Lubbock and West Texas are varied. A home invasion, the aftermath of a suicide, a domestic that turns deadly, activities like drug manufacture or dealing, and many other horrific scenarios can affect any of us given the stressors no one can predict. Innocent victims are left to sort out the debris and residues remaining, many of them hazardous and requiring professional handling. We specialize in an efficient and compassionate response to these life-altering events. 
 
SERVPRO technicians master techniques that meet the IICRC Standard for trauma and crime scene cleanup. We arrive prepared to assess and plan for the particular situation, ready to begin the remediation immediately. The crew members know and carry out all federal, state, and local requirements as they complete each task in the plan, essential for your and your family’s return to safe and comfortable living conditions. 
 
Depending on the type of criminal activity the SERVPRO team cleans up substances and materials like the following: 
 
Blood, bloodborne pathogens, tissue, and fluids. 
 
Law enforcement and evidence collection residues including fire extinguisher residues, tear gas, pepper spray, and fingerprint dust. 
 
Chemical residues used in drug making, cutting, and distribution. 
 
The SERVPRO crew members then clean and disinfect the surfaces affected using EPA registered antimicrobials. All hazardous materials are bagged and disposed of according to the applicable laws for the appropriate jurisdiction. 
 
We assess the physical damage done to structural components, fixtures, and furnishings. SERVPRO can offer pack out services for portable items contaminated with residues, working on restoration at our production facility. SERVPRO consults with your insurance or governmental entities to arrange for the repairs and restoration needed to return your home back to its pre-crime condition. 
 
You are not alone in coping with the aftermath of criminal activity in your home when you work with the specialized cleanup crews from SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock.
