By definition, Readily Available, means able to be used or obtained quickly and easily.

That is what we strive for here at SERVPRO of South Albuquerque & SERVPRO of Rio Rancho and Sandoval County.

Our phone lines are "readily available" twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Although our team might not be in the office, a designated on-call technician is scheduled weekly to ensure that you will be taken care of.

Sadly, when disaster hits it not during normal business hours. Night time, early mornings, holidays, it has no specific time.

Give us a call, our on call tech will get more information from you such as level of damage, safety hazards, insurance information.

Level of damage and safety hazard are the most important to determine if our team needs to arrive within the hour or perform the clean up at a more convenient time for yourself and not cut into your sleep.

This was the case for one of our customers. 

Broken glass to the entry door that lead all through the showroom hallway. Damage was done by a passerby that threw multiple bricks throw the glass doorway. Little shards of glass were everywhere, inside and outside, the property. Although glass can be swept up, you don't always get it 100%.

Damage drywall in a bathroom ceiling Damage to ceiling due to a roof leak

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.

When are team first arrived to the home, we did a full inspection of the damage. The home was built in 2001 so no asbestos  testing was necessary but unfortunately the damage was a lot worse then expected. The inspector discovered microbial growth. Air movers and dehumidifiers were placed in the affected area for drying out. 

Mold has the potential to cause health effects and can spread through your property in as little as 48 hours. SERVPRO of Rio Rancho / Sandoval understands mold and mold growth and has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business.

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

NM Dodges Severe Storms but Stay Informed

Stormy sky with lightning striking the ground When lightning strikes

Although New Mexico is very lucky to not have to go through the devastation of Severe storms just as other states around us it is important to know just in case the world decided to through a curve ball at us. Severe storms can be frightening and dangerous, and safety has to be your first priority. If your area has seen major problems, be careful. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or if flood risk remains, don’t go inside until a professional says it’s safe. Spending a few nights at a friend’s house or in an emergency shelter is a small price to pay.

Once the disaster has passed, it’s important to assess the damage and get started with cleanup and restoration. That is where you contact us at SERVPRO of Rio Rancho/Sandoval County & SERVPRO of South Albuquerque. 505.891.2345

It’s vital to repair storm damage quickly, but the risk of danger is high. Before you try making repairs yourself, work with your home insurer and hire a fully licensed and bonded contractor with credentials from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) THAT IS US! Our team is here to help from start to finish and anything you may need after that!
