Many of our neighbors have been impacted by Hurricane Ida. Damaging winds, flooding rain, and storm surge from this system have wreaked havoc to property and businesses in its path.

It's not a fast process, nor is it an easy one for those who suffered devastating losses.

Here are some of the typical final steps our experts take to ensure the restoration process in complete:

Step 5 - Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.

Step 6 - Restoration

Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

We’ve helped restore thousands of homes and businesses after major water damage, and our highly trained teams have the experience and the equipment to make it “Like it never even happened.”

When damage happens, call SERVPRO of Lawton at 580-699-2662.

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources.

Step 2 - Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

Step 4 - Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

What happens when one of your insurance agents suffers water damage?

Just like they'd recommend to their customers, they called the experts at SERVPRO of Lawton.

When the team at Farmers Insurance - Angela Schertle's office discovered water damage, they called our professionals to mitigate the water damage so they could keep the office open and serve their customers.

Part of our services included the packing out and moving out of all but the necessary equipment while the restoration work was done.

Once the water restoration portion of the job was complete, the office could begin the renovation of their space. And now, they're almost ready to celebrate a grand re-opening!

The last coats of paint are ready to apply, flooring is almost done, and then they're ready for a SERVPRO post-construction cleaning.

Restoring our communities

Doesn't everyone wake up before sunrise to participate in community events?

Maybe not. But our SERVPRO Marketing Representative Denise Henry does.

While many of you may still be snuggled cozily in bed, or working the late shift, I was up before dawn to ensure our team was ready to represent our brand.

With coffee in hand (and another pot brewing), I geared up to move vehicles into place and to await thousands of other early risers at the recent Hotter 'N Hell Hundred.

This huge event was live once again, after a hiatus last year. And like so many newly returned events, the crowd was large and excited to be able to participate.

2020 was extremely difficult on our communities. But like so many others, we are bringing back activities and events, and showing we are here to stay.

Much like SERVPRO is here to help. Help with restoring damage from fire, water and smoke. And here to help restore our community events.
