Does your business have an ERP?

Did you know that SERVPRO of West Topeka can help you prepare your business for any disaster that may happen! SERVPRO has resources to help your business come up with an Emergency Ready Profile so you and your employees know what to do in case of an emergency.

What is carpet delamination?

When carpet is manufactured it is created with two backings. In the most common types of carpets, the yarn is secured into the primary backing by synthetic latex, and a secondary backing (or cushion) is attached with a bonding agent or adhesive to provide further pile-yarn stability and to add dimensional stability to the carpet structure. This secondary backing also helps in ease of installation by moving more easily over the surface of the floor. Carpet delamination is a condition where the secondary backing of the carpet is detached from the primary backing.

How can this happen? There are a variety of ways including, improper installation and pet damage. 

A carpet loses 80% to 85% of its strength when it is wet. That’s why it is so important to call a professional such as SERVPRO as soon as water damage occurs.

Tornado Safety

What is the difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning issued by the National Weather Service?

Tornado Watch:

Be Prepared! Tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area. Review and discuss your emergency plans and check supplies and your safe room. Be ready to act quickly if a warning is issued or you suspect a tornado is approaching. 

Tornado Warning:

Take Action! A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. There is imminent danger to life and property. Move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. 

Saving Your Contents from Water Damage

If you have a water damage in your house or commercial property one of the first things you want to do-after you call SERVPRO-is try and get all your personal property off the affected area. 

SERVPRO is Ready!

SERVPRO of West Topeka knows that heavy rains, storms, and damage not only effect residential properties but commercial buildings as well. That is why we keep our shop fully stocked with equipment. So we can always be prepared to help, no matter what size the job is. 

Flood Watch vs Flood Warning

Flood Watch = “Be Aware.” Conditions are right for flooding to occur in your area.

Steps to Take

  • Turn on your TV/radio. You will receive the latest weather updates and emergency instructions.
  • Know where to go. You may need to reach higher ground quickly and on foot.
  • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit. Include a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.

Flood Warning = "Take Action!" Flooding is either happening or will happen shortly.

Steps to Take

  • Move immediately to higher ground or stay on high ground.Evacuate if directed.
  • Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Turn Around, Don’t Drown! Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
