A Primer on Air Movers and How They Dry Water Damage in Oceanside
Why Air Movers Are a Standard in Oceanside Water Recovery
Though there are hundreds of tools and devices available to our professionals to make a recovery as efficient and cost-effective as possible for Oceanside residences, specific machines and equipment get used more than others. In the realm of water loss recovery and drying, air movers are the standard choice for multiple reasons.
A better understanding of how air movers work and what they can do for your home can help to appreciate their role in restoring water damage in Oceanside properties. Moving air, in general, is a positive solution for aiding in the faster drying of your property after water losses. Tools in this niche of restoration are designed to move a boundary of humid air from directly in front of or above naturally drying construction materials and contents. Without removing this barrier of cooler air, evaporation of the moisture in these materials can slow.
This step is one of the primary purposes of multiple positioned air movers throughout a water-damaged residence. Each unit pushes moisture and moves this cool, moisture-laden barrier hovering above affected surfaces away to quicken drying procedures. Because our SERVPRO team has hundreds of these high-velocity devices at our disposal, we can position them in many points throughout a damaged address to make moisture removal more efficient. Daisy-chaining, or plugging one unit into the next in the line, can reduce a need for multiple extension cords and helps to maximize airflow in an affected region of the house.
When dehumidifiers like our desiccants begin removing moisture from the damaged regions of your home, an exhaust hose reintroduces heated, drier air into the household. Air movers can also get used in these scenarios to help better disperse the incoming new air. A more consistent dispersal of drier air can also play a role in reducing the time drying takes.
Drying your home is primarily linked to the tools and equipment used by the professionals that you trust. Our SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside team counts on our high-velocity air mover and dehumidifiers to help. Contact us anytime at (516) 536-1801.
