men in white PPE cleaning The world has changed what it means to be clean.

The world has changed what is means to be clean.

The pandemic of 2020 made us rethink what "clean" actually means. Because it's no longer just a commercial cleaning, a carpet cleaning, or a duct cleaning.

Now, it's an antimicrobial and antiviral cleaning. Cleaning and sanitizing and thoroughly wiping down all common surfaces in commercial buildings to help prevent the spread of viral pathogens.

Utilizing our proprietary products and expert training, SERVPRO of Lawton has helped area businesses show their customers and employees that they care about their health, and the health of their environment.

Our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned service gives cleaning a whole new meaning. And it provides peace of mind to everyone who enters those businesses.

Our customers are proud to display the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned window decals at their facilities.

When it has to be clean, it has to be a SERVPRO clean.

Our team will remove trash and debris, and thoroughly clean ceilings, walls, light fixtures, floors, windows, kitchens and bathrooms.

Graffiti damage requires special cleaning

8/24/2020 (Permalink)

paint damaged piano Vandals damage school property

Bored teenagers decided it would be fun to break into a local school and redecorate with spray paint and fire extinguishers.

The damage was extensive, and more than the janitorial team could handle. They called SERVPRO of Lawton.

Our inspection found over 5000 square feet of damage in the gym, from the floors to the audio visual booth upstairs.

Harmful and slanderous slogans were painted on walls and furniture, and numerous fire extinguishers were emptied throughout the facility.

Our restoration plan was to clean the phosphate left by the extinguishers, then clean all the graffiti painted surfaces.

The scope of work was estimated to take five days, which would have allowed for the schools awards ceremonies and other events to take place as scheduled.

But then COVID-19 shut down the schools, and most of the entire state of Oklahoma.

Graffiti damage became a small problem, and one that the janitorial team suddenly had time to clean.

We didn't get to restore this school, but we did work with their staff and share solutions to help them perform a self-help project.

Because that's the SERVPRO way. We're here to help.

Cleaning curtains is one of those household chores that people put off for years. The hassle of taking them down, finding a dry cleaner, then hanging them back up is more work than most of us have time for.

Did you know most curtains are made of woven fabrics that gather dust, pet hair, and dander — even mold spores?

Over time, these things accumulate, and your window treatments start to look dingy. Some fabrics require minimal care while others, like embroidered or brocade patterns with layers and linings, require professional cleaning.

SERVPRO of Lawton offers a variety of cleaning options for your home or business, including on-site cleaning to minimize interruption.

Trust the certified professionals at SERVPRO of Lawton for all your carpet, upholstery, draperies and blinds.   

Exposed duct work attracts dirt and dust

Dust collected on top of air duct Exposed ducts attract dirt and dust.

While we love the visual appearance of exposed ducting, this industrial trend keeps a hidden secret: dirt and dust.

This commercial facility wanted a SERVPRO thorough cleaning. Our technicians arrived ready to battle all the dust bunnies and anything else the site could send our way.

As always, we start at the top (ceilings) and clean our way to the bottom (flooring).

One surprise? The exposed ducting had not been cleaned in years, leaving a heavy coating of dirt, dust, and lots of dust bunnies.

Never deterred by dirt, our highly trained professionals vacuumed, dusted, and washed the entire surface of the duct until it shined like new.
