Water damage can cause secondary damages if not dried out properly.  Even though we are in Las Vegas, which can be very dry and very hot it by no means, means that mold is impossible. When water gets trapped between walls or in other tight places it can start to create its own greenhouse effect.  When this happens mold can begin to grow within anywhere from 1-3 days.  It's important to immediately call out a SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas estimator to test all wet areas and make sure the moisture reading are safe.  Condos seem to be a huge trap for mold mainly because there are a lot of times where leaks are not detected until it's too late or tenants have water issues that they take care of themselves without letting the homeowner know.  Because of this we know to be very cautious when a condo leaks.  If you are a tenant it's important to let the homeowner so they can send SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas out for a FREE inspection.

Storm Damage Las Vegas

Last year it seemed like Las Vegas received a lot more rain than normal.  Not only did it seem like we got more rain but when it rained it seemed to rain from every angle.  Sometimes it's hard to see where the water ends or even begins.  SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas has advanced technology to help find and dry the areas before they receive secondary damages.  In this photo a SERVPRO project manager is using an infrared on his phone to help identify the affected areas.  Once these areas are identified SERVPRO will double verify they are wet with a moisture reader, either penetrating or non-penetrating.  Infrareds are helpful but must be double check only because infrareds will identify cold areas only so there could be false readings.  The homeowner was captivated with the technology SERVPRO provided and was impressed with the knowledge portrayed.

Mold usually means that water has been trapped for a period of time.  In some cases it's because a water loss occurred and wasn't cleaned up properly or a leak was so small that it was never detected until it's too late.  In this photo SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas is using a BIG air scrubber and a HEPA vacuum to help clean the affected area.  This loss was caused by a faulty roof which was slowly leaking then a wind storm came by causing massive amounts and rain to fall through big opening.  The insurance company recommended a licensed company to get on site with the knowledge to do the work.  The homeowner was recommended to contact SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas.  SERVPRO is a mold remediation professional willing to take on any size of loss.
