Give Back to Your Local Community

1/9/2019 (Permalink)

Everyone loves to support as many local businesses and organizations as much as possible. But did you know there is a way to give back to local non-profits while you are doing your grocery shopping?

After you sign up for Kroger’s Rewards system, when you shop at Kroger, Ruler Foods or use their gas stations, they donate a portion of their proceeds to the local organization of your choice. If you know of a local organization that accepts donations, they can also apply to be on the list of places to donate to.

You simply go to the Kroger website, click on the drop-down menu “Savings & Rewards” and click on “Kroger Community Rewards”. Once there, it prompts you to sign into your account and you can see which organizations you can select your donation to go to. Doing this takes minutes and can benefit the community without you even thinking about it.

Commercial F1rst Responder Bowl 2018 We loved seeing our logo featured on the field!

SERVPRO Corporate was happy to be the signature sponsor of the 2018 F1rst Responder Bowl that was held in Dallas, Texas on December 26th. This bowl game supports local first responders and their families. The goal of the game each year is to have as many first responders in the stands as possible. SERVPRO Franchises from all over the country band together, and purchase tickets for these hard working men and women to be able to go without the stress of having to pay for it. SERVPRO of Allen, Barren, Hart, Green and Taylor Counties sponsored two tickets this year for one of the responders.

Boston College and Boise State University went head to head in the game, but unfortunately while it was 7-0 Boston College, there was a delay of game, which eventually turned into the game being cancelled.

You could almost say it was “Like it never even happened.”

Dryer Hack

12/5/2018 (Permalink)

Ever find yourself running low on time in the mornings when you are trying to get ready for school or work? Most people do, especially when kids are in involved. Here is hack that can get rid of the need to pull out your ironing board in the mornings!

  1. Put your wrinkled item in the dryer
  2. Add in three ice cubes
  3. Run on high for 3-5 minutes
  4. Promptly take out clothing and either hang up or put on

That is it! As the dryer evaporates the ice cubes, the steam helps to release the wrinkles and will freshen up your clothing. This can save you a lot of time when you are in a hurry!

Commercial Commercial Tile Cleaning Before & After

Every business is going to have wear and tear on their floors which will cause dirt buildup. If you have tile and grout, you know how hard it can be to get it clean once it is dirty. It is back breaking work, especially if you have a large area that is laid in tile.

We are able to come in and clean your business during or after business hours to make sure that you can stay open throughout the whole process. Many home kitchens are also laid with tile, so we are able to work in homes also.

This photo is before and after we did a commercial tile and grout cleaning, and you can see that the difference we made was amazing. Call us at 270-659-0067 for a free quote!

Commercial Duct Cleaning

8/16/2017 (Permalink)

  • The process begins by using patented equipment including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape an diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.

  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.

  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the environment clean.

  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor to microbial concerns.

  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.


Duct cleaning may not always be necessary. SERVPRO of Allen, Barren, Hart, Green, and Taylor Counties will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as after fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, SERVPRO of Allen, Barren, Hart, Green, and Taylor Counties often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.
