Water damage is one of the most frequently reported cases of property damage across the nation. This is because the vast majority of homes and businesses are built with porous materials susceptible to damage from excess moisture. This means whether it is from a flood, severe storm, burst pipe, plumbing issue, leak, or more, the results are largely the same – you are left with water damage that can lead to structural damage, mold growth, and other complications. For these reasons and more, we proudly provide full water damage restoration services here at ServiceMaster of Albuquerque and West Mesa to property owners in Valencia County, NM.
Here at ServiceMaster of Albuquerque and West Mesa, we utilize industry-best moisture removal and water extraction equipment and methodologies to eliminate the risk of further water damage. Additionally, we will restore all affected areas and items (i.e. structural elements, furnishings, personal belongings, etc.) to their original condition. We do this through the following processes:
- Step 1 – Emergency Response: We are available 24 hours a day, and can get a highly trained team of technicians to your property within 2 to 4 hours of your call. When we arrive, we will perform an initial inspection to assess the extent of the damage.
- Step 2 – Water Removal and Drying: By utilizing our state-of-the-art drying equipment and procedures, we will remove all water and excess moisture from your property.
- Step 3 – Reinstallation and Cleaning: Once any standing water and excess moisture have been removed, we will reinstall any furniture or other belongings that were previously displaced for cleaning.
Whether you are in a residential or commercial setting, the results of water damage can be disastrous. Structural damage can occur when porous building materials absorb too much water, and mold may begin to grow because of the excess moisture. In either scenario, you, your loved ones, and your employees will be at risk. This is why we encourage you to contact us here at ServiceMaster of Albuquerque and West Mesa right away if your property has experienced water damage.
