Drying equipment plays an integral part in the water damage restoration process and the best types to use are air movers and carpet dryers. Here are a few important facts to know about these drying devices:

•    Air movers and carpet dryers produce high air flow rates to dry wet carpets, walls, floors, and other water damaged surfaces, to prevent the growth of mould and mildew as well as surface deterioration and decay. They work well in areas of all sizes and are often used in tandem with dehumidifiers for even faster drying times.

•    For the best results, it’s important to use air movers and carpet dryers with powerful motors. A high-powered motor will produce higher rates of airflow and will therefore have the ability to dry large and expansive areas quickly and effectively. Other features to look for are multiple speed settings and the ability to set different drying positions. Air movers and carpet dryers with these features will provide the most versatility.  

•    Due to the fact that air movers and carpet dryers will often be required to work in the presence of large amounts of water, they should have a corrosive-resistant layer in place to prevent water damage to internal components and parts. Wheels should also be attached to the unit for easy movement and transport.

•    Before using air movers and carpet dryers, always check for electrical safety. Make sure that the units are grounded with cords fully intact. Defective machines will pose serious threats to operator safety such as electrical shock.  

Using air movers and carpet dryers to aid in water damage restoration will facilitate a quick and efficient drying process that will prevent further deterioration and decay of surfaces. Air movers and carpet dryers that are powerful, durable, and electrically safe, will save considerable amounts of time, money, and effort.
