756-4300

So local, you know it's a (254) area code right off the bat.

And for much of the greater Waco and Central Texas area one doesn't even have to dial the area code to call us.

BEWARE of (800) numbers and/or (254) numbers with prefixes you have never heard of if you need restoration services.

Companies operating from other markets, long distances away, are trying to make themselves seem like they are local and close by, when in fact they are not from around here at all.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, has been helping folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area for over 20 years with property damage restoration.  Our facilities have been close by you the whole time.

If you need help, call us at (254) 756-4300.

Waco, TX  76712

We are very local!  You can find us very quickly and easily.  Our warehouse is just off Central Texas Parkway right behind Happy Hounds and Slow Rise Pizza.

Yes that does sound like "when you get to the fork, take it" but we really are pretty much behind them both.

Beware of restoration companies that do not include their address in their listings or ads.  There is a reason they don't.

Quite simply...they ain't from around here!

Companies, from significant distances away or who used to be local and left the area, secure (800) phones numbers or (254) phone numbers  to appear they are right hear in greater Waco or Central Texas. Some also keep phone numbers from when they used to be here and moved a hundred miles or so away.

A big give away is not listing an address.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, is very local and centrally located.  We've been helping folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area with property damage restoration since 2001.

GROUND WATER

There's a term you don't want to hear in storms and heavy rain downpours.

It work its way into your building, sometimes in vast amounts.

While basements are rare around here, it can come in through closed doors, outside walls, etc.  This can include into crawlspaces, where the evaporating humidity from it can cause a lot of secondary damage.

The picture shows the near completion of a building equipment room drying where that little looking seepage actually ran in quantity into the lobby and down the hall.  This particular building has a below grade (basement) level and heavy amounts of rain fell in a short period of time.

At SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, we are very experienced helping folks around the greater Waco and Central Texas area through ground water flooding damage.  We get it dried.  Ground water does have to stop coming in on its own.  But we'll get it out and dried right away.

Heavily Insured!

12/8/2020 (Permalink)

A big concern when having workers come to your home or business, especially on an emergency basis,  is how well the company is insured for any thing that might go wrong.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, is actually a franchise owned by local folks right here in Central Texas (if you consider China Spring to be in Central Texas. 

Through the franchise connection, insurances specialized to our work and industry are available to us that not just any old company can get.  We are actually required to carry all of it!  And they keep track it's up to date.

Air Scrubbing for Mold Spores

10/14/2020 (Permalink)

Rectangular metal boxy machine inside a living room Air getting a good scrubbing

In areas or near areas affected by mold damage one way to clean the mold spores out of the air is to use an air scrubber.  This type of air scrubber can be used to clean the air from sewage and other airborne contaminants.

In this Baylor area house in Waco, TX, the air is being drawn into an air scrubber.

It passes through some preliminary filters and then through a HEPA filter (High-Efficiency Particulate Air).  Air leaving the machine, having passed through the HEPA filter, is 99.97% clean of any particulates, not just mold spores, etc.

Ducting the clean air exhausted from the machine to the outside creates negative air flowing out of the air and is often used in areas where mold covered materials are being removed.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, has been helping homeowners, businesses and institutions in the greater Waco and Central Texas area deal with mold issues for nearly 20 years.

If you find yourself in a moldy situation, give us a call.

Water Experts

These Two Can Handle Some Water!

Yes, live and direct from a Woodway, TX, grocery store parking lot. The rugged water handling vehicle pictured on the right had joined our rugged water handling vehicle pictured on the left.

Granted the one on the right is a great looking outdoorsy, water forging type which is surely a hoot to ride in.

The more "glamourous" SERVPRO vehicle is the one you want to show up if you have water affecting your building where water shouldn't be.

And, while more comfortable, it probably isn't quite the hoot to drive compared to the other one.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, has helped hundreds and hundreds of folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area through water damage and home/building damages of all sorts area over our 19+ years in business.

Joking aside, we have the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.

Air Mover A91 christened in the Baptismal Waters

9/24/2020 (Permalink)

A low profile air mover/fan surrounded by water and building framing New, low style air mover drying up the excess baptistry water on its very first job placement.

One day after arrival at our warehouse and the day it was "named" and listed in our system, air mover A91 was pressed into service to dry the area under a Waco, TX, church baptistry.  Literally the church baptistry.

This baptistry is a submersion style and holds a lot of water.  Consequently, it takes a while to fill...and things can happen.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, was able to dry out the area under the baptistry and the areas of the sanctuary of this Waco church into which the water also ran pretty quickly.

Baptisms went on unimpeded.

SERVPRO of Waco has helped many churches in the greater Waco and Central Texas area through property damage situations since 2001.

In addition to churches, SERVPRO of Waco has helped thousands of folks over the last 19+ years.

Non-Fire Extinguished

9/24/2020 (Permalink)

Kitchen table and chair covered in white powder except where items were covering areas of the table Kitchen table, chair and floor covered with fire extinguisher powder

That's right.  This is probably better described as a fire extinguisher emptied in a Crawford, TX, area resort apartment building, not related to an actual fire.

Hopefully, you've never needed to experience a situation where the fire extinguisher needed to be used.

One thing for sure, the white powder shoots out of it in a real hurry.  And it makes a real mess.  Used for its fire extinguishing purpose, it shoots a mess onto a mess already in progress.  Set off for any other reason, it makes quite the mess on its own.

This use of a fire extinguisher put white powder into two apartments, a stairwell and a long downstairs hall.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, was able to successfully clean up the damage and have the building ready for rental by the next bookings.

We have helped thousands of folks through property damages in the greater Waco and Central Texas area during our nearly 20 years in business.
