The picture is not that exciting, but a small indicator of what is to come.

This Las Vegas home experienced a huge water loss from a roof leak.  SERVPRO of Centennial Hills was able to extract and dry the water that was coming through, but during our assessment we also discovered other areas of the house with these small ceiling stains which the owner said had been there for years.  SERVPRO strongly recommended to the owner that these are telltale signs of that another roof leak that could happen again if not addressed. The homeowners made preparations and started the process of looking into further repairs to their roof. 

We offer 24 hours emergency services and are ready to tackle any disaster you are experiencing.  Let us help you!!

Mold discovery!!

Black mold inside of wall Black mold discovered!

Mold contaminated bathroom

Life throws at us many challenges as well as our home's plumbing system. Once again SERVPRO of Centennial Hills received a call about a plumbing burst from a fresh water supply line to a toilet. When we arrived, this seasonal home was in unbelievably bad shape as far as the loss goes. The water had been spraying for quite some time without warning for the homeowner. We were able to stop the water burst and start assessing for further damages to the home.

The picture shows excessive amounts of mold growth on the walls, ceiling and trim. The owners have not occupied this residence in four months. Mold growth can get out of hand quick with the right atmospheric temperature and water availability. Mold has the potential to destroy a home structurally and create health effects.

Going forward the best advice we can give is have a trusting friend or family member keep an eye on your seasonal dwelling in order to help prevent this kind of loss.

Air movers ducted into affected area to enhance drying efforts Air movers ducted into affected area in order to enhance drying efforts.

In life we take things for granted for example patio roofing. It is very important to take the time to look around all areas of your home including the patio roofing and look for signs of change that do not seem right for example paint discoloration or that familiar term everyone uses “COFFEE STAINING” brownish look on walls and ceiling or missing roof tiles If you happen to see this at your residence or commercial properties, the smart thing to do is call us immediately so we can test for moisture and find where the problem is coming from and prevent secondary damage of mold growth.

The picture shows air movers ducting to pump dry air into the affected area to help speed up the drying process of materials.

When we arrived this home had just went through heavy storm event that blew off shingles then pouring rain flooded their kitchen. Then we noticed paint bubbling, staining on the surface of the ceiling in the kitchen and heavy amounts of moisture as well and once we opened up the ceiling we noticed sun light peaking through. Since then the studs in the ceiling were treated with anti microbial to prevent secondary damage like mold. Eventually all new materials were put back "Like it never even happened."

Hardwood flooring rescue

When water happens to meet wood flooring, time is critical. SERVPRO of Centennial Hills received a call about a water loss emergency involving a fresh water line rupture in the kitchen. When SERVPRO arrived at the emergency, it was time for immediate water extraction and assessment for any possible secondary damage. During the water extraction process, we knew that the flooring was actual hard wood so we had little time before cupping would occur. After extracting with the Hand Wand extractor, we were still getting high moisture readings under the surface of the flooring and realized we needed to take further action in order to save the flooring.

The picture shows the Rescue mat extraction system in action along with other equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers. We put the Rescue mat extraction system to the test; extracting the water from underneath the flooring while holding pressure on the flooring in order to prevent the cupping affect. After a few days of constant monitoring and equipment adjustments, SERVPRO of Centennial Hills succeeded in saving these homeowners beloved hard wood floors.

Bio Hazard

Disinfecting before entering positive COVID 19 area In the medical field there’s a saying “Scrub in and Scrub out” when entering a room. This is how we do it before entering.

COVID-19 preventative

Here at SERVPRO of Centennial Hills we pride ourselves on taking the time to get a service resolved in a professional and timely manner. One of these services includes disinfecting with our own SERVPROXIDE antimicrobial. In the event that a customer calls in with a confirmed COVID-19 case and SERVPRO arrives at the scene, these are the steps to take in order to get the job done...

Step 1: Suit Up

  • SERVPRO team members must put on a full body, protective tyvex suit
  • Tape the seam between gloves and the suit to prevent exposure
  • Wear respiratory and eye protection to avoid possible contamination
  • All SERVPRO members MUST be sprayed and disinfected themselves before entering into the property

Step 2: Gear Up

  • Grab all necessary equipment needed to accomplish the job

(i.e. SERVPROXIDE, Fogging machine, clean towels, extension chords, etc)

Step 3: Disinfect

  • The SERVPRO fogger takes the liquid SERVPROXIDE antimicrobial and disperses it into a very fine mist(fog)
  • Allow the fog to settle for 10-15 minutes before wiping high-touch areas

(I.e keyboards, coffee machines, countertops, cabinets, door handles, etc)

Step 4: Clean Up

  • Once the affected areas have been disinfected and wiped, all SERVPRO team members will go outside to be sprayed and disinfected once more before removing the full body suit
  • After everyone is back in their normal SERVPRO attire, the body suits and gloves are put in biohazard bags to be properly disposed
  • The goggles and respirators are put into a trash bag to be taken back to SERVPRO HQ to be properly disinfected and wiped down themselves

These are all the necessary precautions to get a COVID-19 job done effectively!

Shower door seal failure

Mold on drywall from a leaky shower door seal Shower door seal failure

Oftentimes we take things for granted, for instance a shower door seal. Day in and day out we use the shower and don’t realize how something so small can be devastating when it no longer does its job. 

Unfortunately this Las Vegas resident noticed pieces of his shower door seal flapping around every time he opened and closed the shower door. This failure caused warm water to constantly leak into the nearby wall thus causing mold damage to drywall, wood framing, wood trim/baseboards, tile and wood subfloor. The damages were pretty extensive at the cost of a cheap door seal. When you have the chance take 5 minutes of your time, check those shower door seals and any other seals that are installed to prevent water entry into your home or business. If you suspect a leak give SERVPRO of Centennial Hills a call. 702-947-0947. We provide a free water leak and moisture detection inspection.

Communities such as Providence HOA Management was kindly enough to let us participate in their event and will invite us to attend more in the future. SERVPRO is honored to be part of their community events and ready to mingle with the locals and make them aware of what services we have to offer.  Continue to stay VEGAS STRONG!!

Shower/Tub plumbing failure

Wet drywall removal from plumbing leak Removing ceiling drywall to start the drying process of wood subfloor.

This Las Vegas customer noticed a large cone shaped object forming on the ceiling inside her home.  SERVPRO of Centennial Hills was called to help assess the problem and figured out she had a plumbing leak from the upstairs shower tub which made it possible for water to get trapped in her ceiling.  SERVPRO was able to follow the water migration to the leaky portion of her plumbing and stop the leak.  

Our team removed all the wet drywall and insulation and started the drying process immediately. After removing the wet drywall the owner was so grateful that moisture was taken away to not promote further problems like mold growth. The sense of relief on the customer's face was very rewarding.

If you see signs of discoloration on your walls and ceilings give SERVPRO of Centennial Hills a call.
