Why Use Air Movers?

Restoration professionals rely heavily on the use of air movers due to their ability to quickly and effectively dry out water damaged areas. They are built with a high power fan that increases the rate of water evaporation to significantly speed up the drying process. There are many other reasons as to why air movers are used and these are outlined below: An air mover is a highly versatile piece of restoration equipment. With a seven-position versatility, it can be used in small and hard-to-reach areas such as tight corners and crawl spaces, on high areas like ceilings and walls and even for drying whole rooms and houses. Air movers are effective on a variety of surface types including carpet, hardwood floors, walls and furnishings as well as brickwork. Using air movers in the restoration process will not only speed up cleaning and drying times, it will also minimize the risk of permanent secondary damage. The longer that water is left on a surface, the more likely it is that permanent and irreversible damage and decay will occur. An air mover will dry out an area in the fastest time possible, which means that there is less chance of surfaces rotting and becoming deteriorated. Manufacturers have designed air movers to be lightweight and compact, yet still powerful. They are stackable for easy storage. Walls can hold an incredible amount of water, due to the wicking process and the porus nature of brick. The single most efficient way to increase evaporation and dry out a wet area is airflow directly on the area. It is surprising just how quickly restoration equipment such as air movers, combined with a good dehumidification system, can dry out walls and other areas affected by excess water. Therefore, when treating water damage in a home or industrial setting, an air mover is a vital piece of equipment and the first port of call for a restoration professional. Proper use of this equipment will quickly dry out all affected areas before any permanent damage can set in.
