Over time your property needs regular maintenance. From carpet cleaning to air duct cleaning, regular maintenance is key to keeping your property free of harmful particulate matter and safe for the occupants.

As your HVAC unit processes the air in your home, over time a layer of dust and debris can build up around the inside of your HVAC ductwork. As your home's HVAC processes the air in your home it will also process this built up dust and debris throughout your home. 

The cleaning process is quite simple. First, we remove the vent registers from the ceiling or floor giving us access to the ductwork. Then we set up our air duct cleaning machine that is a vacuum and vacuum hose with a cable brush head attachment. We feed the vacuum into the ventilation ducts and as it travels through the ductwork then the brush head spins removing any debris from the surface of the ductwork. The vacuum removes the debris as its lifted from the ductwork therefore leaving the surface clean and residue free. 

The team at SERVPRO of West Oklahoma City specializes in HVAC Duct Cleaning and is here to help clean your home's ventilation network. Whether you've never cleaned your air ducts or would like us to perform a quarterly maintenance, trust your local team at SERVPRO to bring your home to a new state of cleanliness. 

Storm Response & Disaster Recovery Is What SERVPRO Is Ready For!

How can SERVPRO of West Oklahoma City help during storm events?

Storm season is on the horizon and with a nationwide network of Disaster Recovery Teams, SERVPRO is always Here to Help!

SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Teams are well known for their nationwide storm response. During a storm event, our storm team assigns a host franchise which is typically the franchises located within the areas affected by the storm event. Once the storm team is in place they start to funnel all of the overwhelming calls into an organized database. This allows franchises across the country the opportunity to participate and secure work in the storm area.

Last year our General Manager, Jacob Exler participated in the hurricane Laura and hurricane Sally recovery efforts in Louisiana and Alabama under the leadership of Storm Team Wilson. During this time we saw the extreme response of our national network and we were on the ground assisting those affected.

The experience was one to remember. Driving in these areas is always a sight to see. It's devastating what can happen to people's greatest investment, their property. For miles and miles there was no electricity, gas, food or water. The only vehicles on the roads were first responders, military, utility companies and restoration companies like SERVPRO. Oh what a joy it is to help. 

So, what do we do when we are in these areas during a storm event? Well first we respond and mitigate to prevent further structure damage caused by wind, rain, flooding and fire. We start with the extraction of water and/or contaminated materials then proceed with the demolition of building materials followed by construction.

If your home or business suffers from a water or fire loss during a storm event, give us a call. No matter where you are in the country we are always here to help.

"When a winter storm caused a pipe to freeze , and break - water flooded our office floors and server room. If it weren't for the quick response time and fast action of the Team at SERVPRO of West Oklahoma City, our operation would have completely shut down. Thanks to Chris and his team, for helping keep our business operating!" — Jeremy M. in Oklahoma City, OK

SERVPRO Helps West Oklahoma City Businesses Recover after Flooding Incidents

For businesses in the hospitality sector or even real estate development, a flooding incident can interrupt some crucial plans such as check-ins or exhibitions, ruining opportunities you have chased for months. Taking the initiative to contain the situation can help salvage your business reputation.

Containing flood damage in your West Oklahoma City  business premises requires the right resources to achieve the desired results promptly. Depending on how the flooding incident unfolds, there might be many issues to address, including:

Before starting restoration processes, SERVPRO can help take some steps to contain the effects of flooding, thus maintaining your business's reputation. For instance, when boarding up openings on the structure, our technicians consider neatness and security. For instance, we use two by two wooden planks to secure the boards before inserting them into an opening rather than nailing them directly to the surrounding walls. We minimize the chances of a slip, trip, and fall accidents by placing sufficient warning signs around the loss site. 

SERVPRO of West Oklahoma City Can help you deal with flood damage more conveniently. Call us at 405-265-7299.

Soot damage? One of the least talked about fire damage issues!

5/4/2022 (Permalink)

Fires are an unexpected and terrible occurrence for West Oklahoma City homes. The combustion of structural materials and contents in your home produces smoke and soot that can spread quickly throughout the residence. Addressing these concerns where they are found can only happen once the fire has gotten extinguished, and the property has been handed back over to the owner from the first responders. 

Smoke damage restoration for Yukon homes incorporates multiple approaches. Understanding what a property needs gets based on information gathered during the initial job scoping phase. Project managers and crew chiefs for our SERVPRO team can identify surface concerns, circulating particulates, and odors present in the house attributed to combustion. Our cleaning and restoration of fire-damaged homes often focus on three primary areas: 

  • Surface Residues: With partial combustion creating threats like soot particles, smoke residues become a considerable threat for families. Depending on these soils' composition, multiple strategies exist to remove them, including emulsification, dissolving, and abrasive approaches.
  • Content Damages: Cataloging damage to contents determines if on-site cleaning is possible or relocation to our SERVPRO facility can benefit recovering personal belongings.
  • Lingering Odors: Smoke also impacts properties by leaving harsh, noxious odors in the property. Using actions like thermal fogging and equipment like ozone generators, we can neutralize smoke scents. 

Will Reconstruction Be Necessary? 

There are few instances with structure fires where reconstruction or repair is not necessary. We can implement these essential repairs, demolition, and full-scale build back with in-house contractors when needed. 

Fires can be one of the most devastating disasters that homes contend with, but with a fast response from our SERVPRO of West Oklahoma City team, we can reduce total losses and customers' expenses. We work directly with insurance companies for efficient service. Give us a call today at 405-265-7299.

Do You Know How to Prevent Frozen Pipes In Your Home? (Part 1 of 2)

Frozen Pipes with SERVPRO logo Pipes and plumbing fixtures often burst in the winter because water expands as it freezes.

Oklahoma winters bring sub-freezing temperatures that can wreak havoc on unprotected water pipes in Yukon , Oklahoma homes. A little preparation before the cold weather sets in can save you the expense and stress of water damage from frozen pipes bursting.

Pipes and plumbing fixtures often burst in the winter because water expands as it freezes. Pipes and plumbing that are outdoors and above ground are the first to freeze and break, but any pipe plumbing fixture that gets too cold can break.

Winterize all outdoor faucets.

Water left in the spigots on the outside of your home can freeze, causing a pressure buildup that can lead to a burst pipe in your crawlspace or basement. To prevent this, disconnect all water hoses, drain them, and store them inside a garage or shed. If there’s a shutoff valve for your home’s outdoor faucets, turn it off and open the spigots long enough to drain any remaining water from them.

Add insulation to water pipes located in unheated areas.

If you have water lines running through the attic, garage or crawl space, they need to be protected from freezing. Wrap these pipes with foam insulating sleeves (available at your local hardware store), heat tape, or even newspaper and duct tape to provide an extra layer of protection from the cold.

Open cabinets under sinks and let the water run on very cold days.

If you notice your bathroom or kitchen doesn’t stay as warm as the rest of the house, protect the pipes in those areas by leaving cabinet doors open under the sink. This will make it easier for warm air to circulate and keep the pipes warmer. Letting a trickle of water run from each faucet will keep water flowing and help prevent frozen pipes.

cold temperature and SERVPRO Pipes and plumbing fixtures often burst in the winter because water expands as it freezes.

Seal cracks, holes and gaps.

Sealing holes and cracks in areas where plumbing runs through walls or floors can reduce the risk of burst pipes. Caulking or using spray foam insulation to fill these air leaks around plumbing and throughout your home is also a good way to improve energy efficiency.

Winterize your sprinkler system.

Most sprinkler systems have a backflow preventer or well connections that are above ground and exposed to the elements. When water expands as it freezes inside these devices and connections they can easily break. Underground pipes are warmer, but during a deep freeze the plastic lines of a sprinkler system can crack or burst. These leaks may not be found for weeks or months, and they can be costly to repair.

Keep the heat running while you’re traveling.

You may be tempted to turn off the furnace to save money while you’re away for the holidays or traveling south for the winter, but this could end up costing you thousands to repair water damage if a pipe bursts. A better solution is to turn your thermostat down to 55 degrees. For added protection, turn off the main water supply to the house and open each faucet for a minute or two to drain any water left in the pipes.

Is There Anything I Can Do To Help My Belongings When I Have A Flood?

2/6/2022 (Permalink)

You hear running water and when you go to investigate, you discover your washing machine pumping gallons of water all over your floor. You rush to the basement to turn off the water source, only to discover water pouring down the walls. What a disaster! Of course, the first thing you do is call the emergency line for your local water mitigation and repair company in Yukon, OK. They'll be there within an hour, but you're thinking about the possible water damage to your house. 


  1. Pick Up Items
    If there are rugs or carpets in your laundry room that you can pick up, remove them. Weather depending, you may want to take them outside and drape them over a clothes line or a chair to let the water drain out. Shoes, bags, and pet gear, and especially anything that has color that can run, like books or magazines, should all be picked up and moved. Most things can hang to dry and won't suffer ill-effects from water damage, but a bag of dog food should probably be replaced since you don't want to run the risk of feeding your pet anything contaminated.
  2. Sop Up Water
    Once the floor is clear, you can concentrate on sopping up some of the standing water. A handful of towels or a mop may be enough to get the mess under control, or you may want to use a shop vacuum. While the mitigation team will be able to help with water cleanup, the sooner you can remove standing water, the better.
  3. Prop Up Furniture
    Broken pipes may have gotten the better of your washing machine but they don't have to claim your furniture, too. Use aluminum foil or small wooded blocks to raise furniture up off of wet floors, especially if it's carpeted. By doing this, you're protecting your furniture from prolonged water exposure.
    You can expedite your recovery from water damage by taking steps to clean up even before help arrives.
