High KBDI values indicate that conditions are favorable for the occurrence and spread of wildfires. The following table shows how KBDI and expected fire potential relate. 

   KBDI ValuesDrought and fire potential information    0 – 200Soil and fuel moisture are high. Most fuels will not contribute much to wildfire intensity. This is often seen in spring after winter precipitation.     200 - 400Fuels are beginning to dry and contribute to wildfire intensity. Heavier fuels will still not readily ignite and burn. This is often seen in late spring.     400 - 600Wildfire intensity begins to increase significantly. Wildfires will readily burn, and larger fuels could burn or smolder for several days. This is often seen in late summer and early fall.     600 - 800Wildfires will show extreme intensity. Deep-burning, intense wildfires with significant spotting can be expected. This is often associated with severe drought. 

Presently, this index is derived from ground-based estimates of temperature and NEXRAD radar of precipitation derived from weather stations and interpolated manually by experts at Texas A&M Forest Service for counties across the state. Researchers at Texas A&M University are working with TFS to derive this index from NOAA National Weather Service data and NEXRAD radar rainfall within a GIS.

What To Do if You Experience Commercial Water Damage

Commercial water damage is one of the most frequent and expensive claims small businesses face. When it comes to your business and water damage, it doesn’t take much to face a costly claim. In fact, some data shows that about 75% of losses come from leaks related to:

  • Plumbing
  • HVAC systems
  • Appliances

If you notice commercial water damage or an issue that can lead to property loss, it’s important to take immediate action.

From finding the source of water and starting the restoration process to filing a claim with your insurer, there are steps to follow that are critical to mitigate the damage.

4 Steps To Take for Commercial Water Damage Restoration

  • Identify the source of water damage. Water leaks and intrusions can happen in many places. Some common areas to check are pipes or holes in your roof or walls. You can also work with a local plumber to help identify the source.
  • If necessary, shut off the water main. If you have a leaking or burst pipe, shut off the water main to prevent more damage.

SERVPRO van in front of business If you have any questions of a problem you may be having, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches at (936) 559-0404

At SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches, our goal is to ensure our East Texas Commercial Businesses are aware of any type of damages that they could encounter. The bottom line is, damage that has the potential to impact a residential property can also impact a commercial building.

Types of Damages

Storm: Damage caused by strong winds and heavy rain can remove roof tiles, break windows, plus much more. Storm damages can be devastating and can cause a delay in business (business interruption).

Water: Water damage is typically due to burst pipes, Plumbing failures, floods, or rain. In any case, this can result in contaminated water affecting surfaces, structural, and contents. Water damage can also cause suspicious growth like mold or mildew and erode belongings. Electricity and water damage can quickly become volatile when combined.

Fire: Fire damage can result from a gas stove, faulty outlet, floor heaters, and candles. This can cause severe destruction to your property, which requires cleaning and restoration services.

Mold: What promotes mold growth?  Mold requires water, food, and oxygen to grow. ... They require water to grow and spread, which is why it is recommended to keep homes – especially walls and carpets – as dry as possible. Water leaks, flooding, high humidity, and condensation all provide moisture mold can use to grow and spread

How Does Mold Effect Your Lufkin Business

7/8/2021 (Permalink)

Ceiling mold damage If you discover significant mold growth in your Lufkin business, call us at (936) 559-0404.

Interrupting business, risking the health of employees and patrons, and threatening the structural integrity of the building, mold in the workplace is nothing short of a nightmare.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration details the impact of mold in their article, “Guide to Mold in the Workplace”. They assert that mold can grow on “virtually any substance”. All that’s needed for mold to grow and thrive is moisture, oxygen, and a food source. OSHA also emphasizes that mold growth indoors should be avoided at all costs. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the most common areas in which mold can grow in businesses so that you can know where to look, allowing you to catch it before it grows into a more dangerous problem.

  1. Windows and Doors

Windows and doors are susceptible to mold growth, as moisture and warm, humid air from outside can easily sneak into your business through these entrances. On rainy days or days when condensation is present, monitor windows and doors for accumulating moisture. If you notice an abundance of moisture, be sure to dry it quickly in order to prevent a buildup.

  1. HVAC and AC Units

Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) units and air conditioning units are common in a variety of different kinds of commercial businesses. The units require regular and proper maintenance to prevent them from malfunctioning, which can have many negative consequences to your business. A malfunctioning HVAC or AC unit can lead to increased humidity and leaking, which both perpetuate mold growth. Luckily, with regular maintenance, this is easy to prevent. Be sure to also change your unit’s filters and clean its drip pan regularly to keep it from becoming obstructed. At the first sign of a leak, call a professional for help to avoid mold growth. It may be beneficial to also seek the help of a certified commercial mold inspector if you suspect that mold growth has already taken place. Be sure to also read about our Commercial Mold Remediation services, as well as our HVAC Cleaning Services.

  1. Employee Areas

While they’re not usually on display in a commercial business, employee areas such as kitchens and bathrooms can be hotspots for mold growth. These areas often contain sinks, drains, and toilets, which are all susceptible to moisture accumulation and mold if excess moisture goes unnoticed. The best way to prevent mold growth in employee areas is to clean and inspect them frequently, as well as keep an eye out for early signs of mold growth.

Remember: It Can Happen Anywhere

The aforementioned areas in commercial businesses are especially at risk for mold growth, but it’s important to remember the OSHA’s warning that mold can grow on “virtually any substance” and can therefore be found anywhere. When going about business as usual, pay close attention to any areas of your business dealing with water, including plumbing, pipes, faucets, and drains, for leaks or buildups of moisture. If any areas of your Lufkin business have experienced leaks in the past, be sure to add them to your list of high-risk mold growth spots and inspect them for leaks often.

If you discover significant mold growth in your Lufkin business, call us at (936) 559-0404.

Does Your Nacogdoches Business Have Invisible Water Damage?

7/2/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO employee cleaning water damage By using SERVPRO of Lufkin/S.Nacogdoches, you get trusted, professional, and expert service, care, and restoration.

Water damage to your Nacogdoches Business should never be underestimated, even though not all damage is easily visible, it will show itself with time. No matter the perceived damage, you need to call a professional remediation service, reaction time is one of the most important parts of any water damage situation. Water takes the path of least resistance, so it often finds its way through building materials where it eventually gets trapped and creates rot and mold growth.

Emergency water removal is the first step in preventing any more damage to your property. Once the water is out, and the area has been dried by our SERVPRO technicians, we thoroughly inspect your property and figure out what has been affected and what is undamaged. This process can usually be finished in a few days and is monitored closely to ensure proper drying.

Some of the most common water damage causes:

- Failures in Your Plumbing
These events can release hundreds of gallons of water quickly into your office building. Malfunctions can result from broken pipes, malfunctioning sprinkler systems, loose hoses, and other plumbing sources.

- Local Flooding
Flooding can come from sudden, heavy local rain falls. Downpours this intense can flood gutters, drains, and down spouts quickly, and the overflow can cause severe water damage to your business.

- Long-Term Moisture and Humidity
Small leaks usually hide and are and overlooked, however, over time they lead to water damage problems that need repair. Ceilings, wall cavities, bathrooms, hallways, and attics are the most susceptible areas to mold growth and wood rot from continued exposure. Basements and vented crawlspaces are also environments which can be humid, leading to similar water and mold issues. Standing water can fast turn into damage that is more widespread if it is not cleaned up right away. Mold starts growing in as little as twenty-four hours after a water intrusion and can spread through your building and do much harm to the structural integrity, plus to the health of your employees and any equipment inside.

- So, How Can You Get Your Business "Like it never even happened."

By using SERVPRO of Lufkin/S.Nacogdoches, you get a trusted, professional company to come out to your property to assess water damage and to begin the restoration process immediately.

Mold can damage the structure of business premises, so it is important to call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach as quickly as possible. Mold needs immediate attention, and we are Faster To Any Size Disaster.

What are the signs of mold in a business?

Mold is insidious and can start growing without immediately being noticed. However, there are some tell-tale signs of the presence of mold, such as:

  • Visible black mold growth on the walls or ceiling
  • Peeling wallpaper can be a sign there is mold underneath
  • If there is grout between the tiles in the staff bathrooms, you might notice the grout is darker than before
  • The heating or air conditioning systems might smell fusty or strange. There is a pervasive damp moldy smell that does not seem to go away no matter how much you air the premises

What should I do if I detect mold in my business?

The most important thing to do if you suspect mold in your Nacogdoches commercial premises is to call SERVPRO. Our team members have the skill and equipment to deal with mold growth thoroughly. Speed is essential because mold is fast-growing and can spread rapidly.

You should also shut down your HVAC system and fans until after remediation is complete.

Finally, please stay out of affected areas if possible, and encourage staff to do the same.

Is there anything I should not do?

Some things can make a mold problem worse and are, therefore, best avoided. If you suspect mold, please do not:

  • Attempt to wipe or clean the affected area yourself
  • Touch or disturb the mold in any way
  • Blow air across a surface that has visible mold growth
  • Spray bleach on the affected surface 

What does SERVPRO do to help with mold?

We train our SERVPRO technicians to carry out all aspects of mold remediation. We begin each visit with a thorough assessment of your property to draw up a plan of action that works for you. SERVPRO technicians know that mold can hide, so we use instruments like moisture meters and thermal hygrometers to measure dampness levels inside walls and under carpets.

We establish a containment area to keep mold spores contains. We use physical barriers to secure the affected area and access negative air machines to ensure the spores cannot escape into the rest of the building.

After we establish containment, we start the mold remediation process. We use a range of air scrubbers and robust filters to remove mold from the air. We also tackle mold on walls, floors, and furniture. In some cases, it is necessary to discard affected materials not to cause further mold spread. It is possible to clean affected materials to remove mold and help prevent its return.

If sections of carpet or drywall needs removing, you can rest assured that full restoration is part of our mold remediation process. We understand that your business cannot get back to normal if there is a missing carpet or a hole in the wall! That is why you can entrust us to take care of building restoration as needed to reopen your business quickly.

Our teams also take care of cleaning and deodorizing decorative items, curtains, clothes, and personal effects. We train our technicians to assess whether the items are salvageable. You can trust us to restore as much as possible and only dispose of personal property as a last resort.

What about bad smells?

Mold has an unpleasant odor, and of course, you want to get rid of those smells. Deodorization is an essential step in our mold remediation process. We equip our teams with a range of deodorizing pellets and formulas suitable for large areas and small individual items. We also have various thermal and ULV fogging equipment and air scrubbers at our disposal to thoroughly deodorize your premises.

If mold is left unhampered, it can spread quickly and wreak havoc with your business’ office or warehouse. We recommend being alert to signs of mold and calling us for help at the first sign of a problem. The faster we tackle mold, the less chance it can spread throughout your building.

If you are concerned about mold growth, give SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches a call at (936) 559-0404.

Preparing Your Lufkin Business for a Natural Disaster

Two SERVPRO Vehicles in front of a water damaged church With hurricane season starting in the beginning of June, it’s time to refresh your disaster plan or if you don't have one, to create one.

Owning a business is definitely not for the faint of heart, it takes a lot of time, tears, and devotion. Since you’ve put so much of yourself into your business, you should protect it. With hurricane season starting in the beginning of June, it’s time to refresh your disaster plan. And if you don’t have a disaster plan, there’s no better time than the present to make one.

  1. Create an Emergency Operations Plan

If a natural disaster hits your business, how would react? Since every situation will vary immensely, it’s critical that you take the details into consideration and figure out the best plan for your needs. Be sure to include on-site emergency kits, alternate communication methods for employees, and up to date evacuation plans.

  1. Have Back-Ups of Important Data

If you have a large amount of important paperwork stored at your business, be sure to have copies stored in an off-site location and to have the originals safely stored as well to avoid the brunt of weather damage. With the modern age however, much of that paperwork (if not all), can simply be scanned and uploaded to the cloud.

  1. Contact Your Insurance Provider

Be sure you and your insurance provider are on the same page, make sure you have all your assets documented in case of damage or loss. Also its not a bad idea to talk with your provider and ensure that your current policy’s limits are enough to cover your business.

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle

You can usually turn to Facebook and see who is offering major recycling days in your community like: paint, tires, electronics, shredding and more. Until then here’s a handy five step guide on how to recycle effectively. :

1. Know What to Put in the Recycling Bin

Keep it simple and focus on the most commonly recycled items are paper, glass, aluminum and plastic. Rigid plastics like water and soft drink bottles, milk jugs, detergent jugs or anything like these can be recycled. Don't use the recycled symbol as a guide, “the number on the container is really for people to identify the type of resin it is. That’s not helpful for the common consumer,” said Cody Marshall, a strategist at nonprofit Recycling Partnership.

2. Know What is Not Recyclable

It is really important to know what you cannot put in your bin. You can always check with your municipality or at BeRecycled.org if you live in the US, just plug in your zip code to search. Recycling companies struggle with the same problem items: hoses, cords, plastic bags, needles, clothing and propane tanks, according to Marshall, so don't put those items in your bin.

3. Rinse out or Clean items

Do a quick clean to make sure there is no food left in containers before you put them in the bin. This is really important if you only use one bin because food items or liquids could ruin paper. Save food for composting in your garden.

4. Don't Bag it

Unless you live in a place that requires it, like New York City, keep the recyclables loose in the bin. A lot of the time, it’s not safe for our employees to rip those bags open, or it takes too much time,” said Keller. “A lot of bagged stuff goes right to the landfill.” 

5. If You Don't Know Then Throw it Out

If you really don't know if an item is recyclable and if it cannot be donated to be reused, then just throw it in the garbage. It will end up in a landfill but so will items that are put in recycle bins that don't belong there. If there is non-recyclable items in your bin, it may not be picked up anyway. Waste Management companies spend as much as 140,000 hours every year to remove plastic bags, Christmas lights and other items that get tangled up in the equipment.

Plastic bags can be used again or returned to grocery stores. Batteries, light bulbs, and hazardous waste may have a local recycling program so google or check BeRecycled.org to see where they can be dropped off. 

Summer Office Cleaning tips for Nacogdoches, TX.

8/5/2020 (Permalink)

A computer on a clean, empty desk. Clean desks lead to more productivity, more productivity leads to raises, raises lead to island vacations!

Tips and tricks to help declutter your office.      

Divide Your Workplace Into Zones: Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.

Keep Only What You Need At Arm's Length: Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you've established for them.

Create A Daily Paper System: Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled "To Read", "To Do", and "To File". Establish set days for each, so that you don't get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.

Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.

Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files - with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.

Disinfect Regularly: Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

What is an Emergency Ready Plan?

6/12/2020 (Permalink)

According to FEMA, around 40% of business fail to reopen after a disaster. And to make things worse, the United States Small Business Administration found that over 90% of business close within 2 years of a disaster. But despite these alarming statistics, you can mitigate the impact of a disaster if you make preparations in advance. One of the easiest ways you can begin preparations is by creating an Emergency Ready Profile. 

All of Our Business' Vital Information

An Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) is a document comprised of all of your business' vital information. It includes emergency contact information, utility shut-off locations, and other information you or your employees might need in an emergency situation. 

Your local SERVPRO franchise will create an ERP for your business, free of charge! A representative will come in and ask a few questions, then get the necessary information regarding shut-offs and emergency exit points. The whole process should take no more than a few minuets of your time!

After your representative compiles the documents, they will present both a physical and digital copy of the ERP.

Recovering Your Business

After a disaster, your priority should be to get your business back to its normal operations. Fortunately, an ERP allows you the opportunity to quickly respond and take crucial actions. If you are interested in an ERP for your business or commercial building, call SERVPRO of Lufkin today at 936-554-0404!

Major Sewer Damage

5/14/2020 (Permalink)

Damage restoration professionals have the experience necessary to handle major sewer damage such as a backup or flooded toilet that affects more than one floor of a building. Learn more about the measures necessary to deal with extensive sewage damage at a commercial property in Deep East Texas.

Assess and Mitigate Damage

As soon as a plumber or sewage company has addressed the cause of damage, a building owner or manager should schedule a consultation with a mitigation and restoration company. Trained professionals can assess damage and take the following measures:

  • Pump out standing water
  • Remove solid waste
  • Determine the extent of damage

Extracting contaminated water and solid waste is the most important mitigation measure. The risk of contamination and mold growth will increase the longer that sewer damage is left standing within a structure.

Tear Out Damaged Building Materials

Porous building materials exposed to contaminated water from a sewer backup will likely need to be torn out and replaced. These materials may include any of the following:

  • Ceilings
  • Drywall
  • Insulation

Extensive damage will probably call for the removal and replacement of some building materials and contents. Tearing out and rebuilding is particularly important if a backup or flooded toilet affects more than one floor of a structure.

Disinfect and Dry the Area

It will be necessary to disinfect areas exposed to contaminated Category Two gray water, which may contain microbes, or Category Three black water containing solid waste. Cleanup should take place after damaged materials and contents have been removed to reduce the risk of recontamination.

A building owner or manager should contact a plumber to clear a clog or a sewage company if the blockage is further down the line or a backup originates in a municipal main in Lufkin, Tx. Restoration can only proceed after the portion of a building that has suffered sewer damage is completely dry.

Unclean Air Ducts Can Spell Trouble for your Business

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

It’s East Texas and the calendar is inching us closer and closer to the Summer months. After a cool Winter, many will be turning their air conditioners on more and more as the temperature rises. But, indoor air can get polluted with dust, allergens, and other small particles. If you are concerned about your indoor air quality, you might benefit from having your air ducts cleaned. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned may make a difference in the overall quality of your indoor air. And, cleaning your air ducts may also help your HVAC system function more efficiently.

When it comes to air duct cleaning, homeowners often have many questions. Here are a few of the most common:

Does a professional air duct cleaning really make a difference?
A professional air duct cleaning can benefit you in more than one way. First, the cleaning will remove dust, debris and other pollutants from your air duct system. This can be beneficial to anyone living in the home who suffers from allergies, has breathing problems, or is sensitive to pollutants. Second, clean air ducts can result in a more efficient HVAC system. When your home’s ventilation system is clean, it can function more efficiently – which may ultimately save you money on your monthly energy bill.


How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?
Unless you are in the midst of a home renovation project or you live in an area with extremely high pollution, you should not need to clean your air ducts more than once a year. In fact, after your air ducts are professionally cleaned, you may not need another thorough cleaning for several years. For advice on how often you should have your air ducts cleaned, make sure to ask your air conditioner repair company. If the air conditioner company does not offer air duct cleaning services, they should be able to provide you with the name of a reputable company to call.


Can I clean the air ducts in my home myself?
Many homeowners wonder if they can clean their home’s air ducts with their own vacuum cleaner. In reality, it is practically impossible to clean an air duct system with a regular vacuum. Air duct cleaning companies use special equipment that is designed to specifically clean air ducts. As a homeowner, one of the best things you can do to prevent pollutants from infiltrating your air ducts is regularly change your HVAC system’s air filters.

Is a professional air duct cleaning expensive?
The cost of air duct cleaning services varies. Factors that are taken into consideration when an air duct cleaning company provides you with a quote include the number of air ducts in your home, the age of your home, the length of time since the air ducts were last cleaned, the current condition of the air ducts, and more. 

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

Lufkin Apartment Water Loss

5/12/2020 (Permalink)

In an apartment community, residents will share walls from the sides and from above and below. When a water damage occurs, it can get out of hand quickly, since a water damage can affect multiple residences. You can never know when an emergency will occur, but it’s in your best interest as a property manager to always be prepared for anything. Taking these measures by the American Apartment Owners Association can help you prevent damage in the future.

  • Inspect the property regularly. It is important to ask about repair needs and to check out major systems on a regular basis. If the problem is caught early, then damage can be minimized or avoided.
    Water causes millions of dollars to the rental industry each year. Landlords in updated buildings are seeing damage due to the use of materials that aren’t holding up as expected. Most of the water damage is due to faulty plumbing, which can cause secondary damage like mold and other costly repairs, so it is important to inspect regularly.
  • By acting early when you receive a repair request, then it can help save you money and keep the property in good condition.
  • Pay attention to utility spikes. Whether you pay the utilities, or your tenant complains about a sudden increase, take it seriously. It is a warning sign that something may be spilling out. It can even signal a drug manufacturing operation which one of most costly repair jobs you will ever encounter.
  • Watch the weather. Storms cause significant property damage, and lately we’ve been seeing some monsters. Once the surge is over, check for roof damage, clogged gutters, and poor drainage that may leak into the foundation. The best time to repair old and damaged roofs is when it’s dry.
  • Encourage tenants to carry renters insurance. The main benefit: they won’t ask you to reimburse them for damage. The indirect benefit is making tenants aware of just how much they stand to lose if they are careless and cause damage to the property.

Your Lufkin Business Needs to be Fire Ready!

7/2/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Safety is not something to forget at your business!

Keeping your Lufkin commercial property fire ready is vital in order to avoid disaster. Your livelihood and that of your staff depends on your business, and you will want to protect it. Being ready for any kind of disaster is always a good idea. We are sharing some tips here that can help you get your property ready in the event of a fire:

Ensure that your building or suite is visibly lettered and numbered so that emergency responders can easily find your location in a timely manner. Numbers should contrast with the background used, such as black/white, while the numerals should be no less than six inches in height.

Fire extinguishers should be no more than 75 feet from work areas for easy access, and they should be mounted in a highly visible spot that is easy to get to. Make sure your extinguishers are serviced at least once a year by a licensed fire extinguisher company.

Exits need to be clearly marked with EXIT signage and should be illuminated at all times, with a battery backup for power outages. Exits should also be clear of any obstructions so that people can get out safely and quickly. Emergency lighting should be kept in working order, and the area around the building outside clear of debris and plant material, reducing the fire risk outdoors as well.

Stored materials need to be stacked at least two feet below the ceiling and be orderly. For buildings with an automatic sprinkler system, 18 inches of clearance is required, allowing smoke to collect up high, which gives people adequate time to exit and the sprinklers a clear area for their spray pattern.

Electrical outlets should have no more than one item per outlet plugged in, which may include a power strip with a circuit breaker. All electrical cords should be kept in good repair and replaced when needed.

Trash receptacles need to be kept at least five feet away from combustible roofs, windows, and door openings and not stored in the path of exits.

Have your sprinkler system tested and serviced every 12 months or less by a licensed fire sprinkler company. This practice should also be used for your fire alarm system.

If your business involves cooking foods, make sure your stove hood has been cleaned at least once every year to prevent excessive grease buildup. Ceiling exhaust fans and bathroom heater/light/fan combinations can also be a risk due to a buildup of dust and grease, resulting in increased operating temperatures.

Make sure your local fire department has valid contact information on file for your commercial property.

Unclean Air Ducts can Spell Illness in Your Business

5/11/2019 (Permalink)

Air Ducts can be the last thing you think about to clean.

It’s East Texas and the calendar is inching us closer and closer to the Summer months. After a cool Winter, many will be turning their air conditioners on more and more as the temperature rises. But, indoor air can get polluted with dust, allergens, and other small particles. If you are concerned about your indoor air quality, you might benefit from having your air ducts cleaned. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned may make a difference in the overall quality of your indoor air. And, cleaning your air ducts may also help your HVAC system function more efficiently.

When it comes to air duct cleaning, homeowners often have many questions. Here are a few of the most common:

Does a professional air duct cleaning really make a difference?
A professional air duct cleaning can benefit you in more than one way. First, the cleaning will remove dust, debris and other pollutants from your air duct system. This can be beneficial to anyone living in the home who suffers from allergies, has breathing problems, or is sensitive to pollutants. Second, clean air ducts can result in a more efficient HVAC system. When your home’s ventilation system is clean, it can function more efficiently – which may ultimately save you money on your monthly energy bill.


How often should I have my air ducts cleaned?
Unless you are in the midst of a home renovation project or you live in an area with extremely high pollution, you should not need to clean your air ducts more than once a year. In fact, after your air ducts are professionally cleaned, you may not need another thorough cleaning for several years. For advice on how often you should have your air ducts cleaned, make sure to ask your air conditioner repair company. If the air conditioner company does not offer air duct cleaning services, they should be able to provide you with the name of a reputable company to call.


Can I clean the air ducts in my home myself?
Many homeowners wonder if they can clean their home’s air ducts with their own vacuum cleaner. In reality, it is practically impossible to clean an air duct system with a regular vacuum. Air duct cleaning companies use special equipment that is designed to specifically clean air ducts. As a homeowner, one of the best things you can do to prevent pollutants from infiltrating your air ducts is regularly change your HVAC system’s air filters.

Is a professional air duct cleaning expensive?
The cost of air duct cleaning services varies. Factors that are taken into consideration when an air duct cleaning company provides you with a quote include the number of air ducts in your home, the age of your home, the length of time since the air ducts were last cleaned, the current condition of the air ducts, and more. 

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

Lufkin Sprinkler System Malfunction Requires Commercial Water Removal

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

Sprinkler systems help, should they go off by accident, you'll need to contact your local SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians are Always Available to Remediate Your Water Damaged Business Property

Ironically, a system designed to protect your business from catastrophe can damage it in other ways. A common example of this is a sprinkler system installed to protect a commercial building from fire. The waters sprayed to knock down the flames cause their own harm, and a restoration company needs to be skilled in both water and fire damage to offer your company the services you need. 
 
Even more disappointing is when your fire fighting sprinkler system malfunctions, creating an immediate need for commercial water removal in Lufkin Texas without the excuse of an actual fire. Regardless of the cause, a sprinkler, once activated, releases up to 24 gallons of water per minute. If more than one sprinkler head engages, the amount of water pouring into your commercial space can be significant. Water damage is serious and can result in a broad range of secondary damage issues if not remedied quickly. Our crews of water removal specialists have the skill and the equipment to remove large quantities of water fast. 
 
 
Sprinkler systems protect your property unless they operate unexpectedly. SERVPRO of Lufkin / S. Nacogdoches County Commercial services is a trusted water removal partner for your commercial needs. Call (936) 637-0404 to schedule a speedy evaluation and begin the restoration process. 

Does your restaurant have an odor problem?

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

Keep your restaurant smelling fresh for your customers and employees!

Does your Lufkin/Nacogdoches restaurant smell like a bad recipe? Do you have customers come into your place and wrinkle up their nose? Or they walk in and then leave without ordering anything. You know you’re in need of odor removal when customers suddenly lose their appetite. Let SERVPRO of Lufkin / S. Nacogdoches County Odor Removal and Deodorization Specialist help you get back that sweet smell of success in two steps!

Deep cleaning

Sometimes you need a bit more than the everyday cleaning job your staff does. Just like we do deep cleaning a couple times a year in our homes, it is essential to have this done in our restaurants as well. Restaurants enjoy a thorough cleaning of the floors, drapes, blinds, carpeting, and upholstery. Food smells can become trapped in fabrics leaving a sour or greasy smell. We have specialty cleaning services to ensure your restaurant gets deep cleaned.

Deodorization

Not only does your Lufkin/Nacogdoches restaurant need a deep cleaning, but it needs an odor removal process using deodorization. Our staff is trained to discover what is causing the odors. This is an important first step in eliminating the odors. Once our staff knows where the smell is emanating from, then we can use the proper formula to remove it. We have several different deodorizing formulas created to get to the source of the bad smells. Odor removal is not just about hiding or covering up offending smells, but it’s essential to go to the root of the problem and neutralize it.

Solution


We make cleaning and restoration our expertise. We train and educate our staff to combat stinky smells wherever they may be. If you have a restaurant that does not smell too sweet, contact us today. Lufkin 936-637-0404 / Nacogdoches 936-559-0404 

Is Your Lufkin Texas Business Ready for a Disaster?

The SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile Advantage. 50% of businesses may never reopen after suffering a disaster

SERVPRO of Lufkin / S. Nacogdoches County disaster recovery team is a full service commercial restoration firm. We specialize in commercial drying, cleaning and decontamination needs. Our approach uses a collaborative method to reduce operational risks, minimize downtime and save you money in order to get your business up and running after a disaster.

Consider the statistic that 50% of businesses who suffer a major disaster will never reopen. Of the businesses that reopened, most of them had a plan in place.

Several questions a business owner may consider;

Do your employees know your chain-of-command?

Do your teams know where your water shut-offs are?

Would your employees be able to direct first responders?

The actions taken in the initial minutes of an emergency are critical. A prompt warning to employees to evacuate, shelter or lockdown can save lives. A call for help to public emergency services that provides full and accurate information will help the dispatcher send the right responders and equipment. An employee trained to administer first aid or perform CPR can be lifesaving. Action by employees with knowledge of building and process systems can help control a leak and minimize damage to the facility and the environment.

The consultation and Emergency Readiness Program is offered at no cost to your facility, give us a call at 936-559-0404 and schedule your appointment today.

Flooded Business?

8/1/2018 (Permalink)

Business owners understand why they need to mitigate against flood risk and some of the challenges they may face.

Floods can occur anywhere, often with little or no warning, and with devastating consequences. Protecting the bottom line in order to remain open, or to re-open quickly after a flood disaster, requires taking steps now to prevent or reduce flood damage should your business be in the path of rising water. 

Types Of Flooding

Topography and weather conditions play a prominent role in the impact different types of flooding have on specific locales. The following are some examples of specific types of flooding.

  • Rising water may be the greatest risk to inland areas away from a river bed after a heavy snow pack begins to melt or after heavy rainfall.
  • Moving water is a serious risk in areas near rivers or in coastal storm surge areas because it creates significantly larger lateral forces on a building.
  • Overtopping, breaching or opening of dams, levees, and other flood control mechanisms, which are designed to divert the flow of water to provide protection, can lead to flood damage that may be more significant than if the levees were never installed. The Mississippi and Missouri River floods of 2011 included breaches of levees, as well as controlled flooding by the opening of various flood gates on levees. The result was thousands of acres of farmland, crops, livestock and fish farms being destroyed to protect urban areas.
  • Flash flooding can occur in every region as a result of slow-moving thunderstorms or excessive rainfall from any storm system.
  • Large, slow-moving tropical storms can dump excessive amounts of rain on coastal locations and then move inland to continue the devastation, resulting in widespread flood damage.

Lufkin Restaurant Suffers Fire Damage

Lufkin Restaurant Suffers Fire Damage

After the fire trucks leave, your business likely suffers from fire and smoke damage and extensive water damage from firefighting efforts. SERVPRO of Lufkin / S. Nacogdoches County have the specialized fire restoration training needed to restore your business to pre-fire condition.

Have Questions About Fire, Smoke, or Soot Damage? Call Today – (936) 559-0404

Every fire damage event is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources. 

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
