Serving our country and our community

Imagine a Marine husband and father deployed overseas, leaving behind a wife pregnant with their first child. Following that deployment, imagine the young wife discovering her daughter must undergo emergency open heart surgery. Finally, understand how overcome this young mother feels when her place of employment terminates her, rather than allowing her time off with a sick child.

Kaycee and Aaron Ryan don’t have to imagine it, because they lived it.

And this became the moments in their lives that brought them to SERVPRO.

Upon returning home, Aaron left the Marine Corp and joined the U.S. Air Force Reserves. Kaycee returned to work in a SERVPRO franchise in California. Three years later, they decided to open a SERVPRO of their own, and chose Wichita Falls as their new home.

That was 2014. Today, the Ryan family is flourishing and continues to serve their country while growing their SERVPRO business.

When we say we understand the stress and worry that comes with a disaster and the disruption it causes your life, we truly do understand.

That's why your friends and neighbors trust SERVPRO of Wichita Falls.

Uncovering soot damage

At first glance, you might not even notice the soot deposits throughout this home.

Upon closer inspection, however, our expertly trained technicians can locate soot damage at locations far from the actual fire source.

Smoke and fire damage are often as extensive as the original fire damage. While the fire itself may burn hot and destroy an area of your home, smoke and soot can travel and imbed themselves on many surfaces.

That's why a thorough inspection by our technicians is necessary. We want to ensure that every surface will be thoroughly cleaned, deodorized and disinfected for a healthy environment.

And that includes your air ducts, especially if your heating and cooling system was operating during the fire damage event.

At SERVPRO of Wichita Falls, we know that fire damage is typically fire, water, smoke and soot damage.

And we're here to help restore your home to its preloss condition.

Not all storm damage is visible

Bare studs in ceiling and walls Hidden storm damage causes extensive water damage

We've had customers ask, "How do you know the extent of damage we've had after a storm?"

We don't, until our expertly trained technicians arrive onsite and begin the inspection of your property.

Take a look at this photo. You'll notice the ceiling and adjacent walls have been stripped down to the studs.

Upon arrival, our technicians noted water damage on the ceiling, as well as damage to all the walls in this one room. Damage was also noted in other rooms, though less severe.

Once our teams began the demolition of the ceiling, they noted roof damage that had led to the water leak. This caused all surfaces and the insulation to get wet, which had to be promptly removed.

Our technicians continued to remove all wet materials so we could begin the drying and restoration process.

Not all water damage is easily visible, but damage can't hide from our professionals. 

That's why more customers trust SERVPRO for their restoration needs.

When fire damage happens, you need help from the #1 recommended restoration experts.

That's why this customer called SERVPRO of Wichita Falls.

Busy family times can lead to distractions while cooking, with devastating consequences.

What started as a family get-together became a family evacuation when unattended dishes on the cooktop started a kitchen fire.

Thankfully, the family was able to evacuate safely, and one member extinguished the blaze.

The damage, however, was extensive. While the fire itself was relatively small, the smoke damage was extensive.

SERVPRO of Wichita Falls technicians removed damaged materials, cleaned the affected surfaces and materials, and cleaned all duct work and flooring in the home.

While you may not notice the extent of smoke damage after a "small" fire, our technicians are trained to locate all sources to ensure your property is thoroughly cleaned and professionally restored.

Closer to home

2020 challenged our sense of community.

The pandemic forced entire communities to close down, with no social events or gatherings allowed.

Not only was this difficult emotionally, it was difficult for those in our communities who relied on local services to survive.

Area food banks, senior centers, meals on wheels and other food distribution centers closed until a safe method of delivery could be implemented.

We didn't go outside to volunteer at charitable events, and there certainly weren't any community events planned.

So we redefined community. We made it start smaller, one on one, just like our grandparents did.

We took a pot of soup to a sick coworker. We helped a neighbor mend a fence. And we delivered a box of necessities to the young mother down the street.

Today, community is closer defined to home, and those we serve.
