Fire and smoke damage? You already know to call the professionals at SERVPRO of Lawton.

But do you know what NOT to do after a fire?

What NOT To Do After A Fire

  • Don't attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces or shampoo carpet or upholstery without contacting us.
  • Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat or water without consulting an authorized repair service.
  • Don't use any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored near the fire, heat or water.
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. The wiring may be damaged.

When it's more than fire damage

box filled basement Basement storage suffers water damage after fire fighting efforts

Typically, we think of fire damage as images of burned out, hollow structures.

But oftentimes, the damage is more subtle, yet just as destructive.

This retail warehouse suffered fire damage on the main floor of the facility. Once the fire alarm system was activated, the sprinkler system also activated and helped to control the fire.

Once the fire department completed their inspection and determined the structure was safe, the owners call our team at SERVPRO of Lawton to begin the restoration process.

Our team noted the fire damage on the main floor, along with the water damage caused by the fire suppression system.

We also noted the basement had severe water damage due to fire fighting activities, and had standing water throughout the area.

Our teams began extracting water from the basement area as we also prepared to pack out, move out and demo the affected areas.

When fire and water damage happens, call the trusted experts at SERVPRO of Lawton at 580-699-2662.

Water damage doesn't dampen sermon

church pews, wet floors Restoring the sanctuary before services

The past year has been hard on businesses. Many were forced to close due to the pandemic, or operate at reduced capacity.

Houses of worship were hit especially hard, as all were closed and unable to comfort their congregations.

As restrictions eased and church families were once again hoping to gather, some faced additional delays due to water damage.

Too often, these once bustling gathering places had been left unattended for months, with limited to no maintenance or temperature control.

Thankfully, this church family was in the building cleaning and preparing for the next day's sermon when they discovered water damage.

They quickly called SERVPRO of Lawton to extract water and begin the drying process, hoping it would not interfere with their return to worship.

Our team of professionally trained experts worked throughout the day to stabilize the environment so they could enjoy their Sunday gathering, and we returned after services to continue the restoration process.

The "inside" scoop on storm damage

fallen ceiling, debris covered floor Safety is our number one priority

There's a little bit of storm chaser in all of us.

We watch the weather, and we know the impact severe storms can have on our area.

After the storm, it may be tempting to drive through the neighborhood to see how much damage was done.

Downed tree limbs, power lines, and debris are typically seen, and can be hazardous to navigate.

Just as hazardous are collapsing ceilings due to roof damage from severe storms.

When our team of expertly trained technicians arrive onsite, we first inspect the area to ensure the safety of our team, as well as the safety of our customers.

Is the exterior free from hazards? Do the roof and windows need emergency tarping and boarding to prevent further damage? Are the electricity and water turned off?

And in this case, can we contain and demo the falling ceiling without injury to anyone onsite?

There's a lot that has to happen to restore your property after the storms have passed.

And we're here to help. With safety as our number one priority.

What's the number one cause of home fires?

3/16/2021 (Permalink)

Fire burned stove and cabinet Avoiding distractions while cooking can prevent kitchen fires.

Cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries.  And the leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking.

We've all been there. It's been a busy day, you've rushed home from work to start dinner, and the kids are fussing in the other room.

You've probably yelled at them a time or two before leaving the kitchen to see what the fuss is all about.

And just like that, a fire can start. 

It doesn't take long for a small, unattended fire to become a much larger problem.

At SERVPRO of Lawton, we know how destructive a cooking fire can be.

We also know that the majority of cooking fires can be avoided.

  • Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling, or broiling food.
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the kitchen while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
  • Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop.

Eliminating distractions is one of the easiest ways to help prevent cooking fires!

If fire damage does happen, call the #1 recommended restoration experts at SERVPRO of Lawton at 580-699-2662. We're here to help.
