Crew Chief Explains Critical Air Mover Equipment for Restorations

While our franchise has a lot of tools and equipment specific to certain niches of the restoration industry, other tools can get used on nearly all of our recovery projects where moisture is a factor. Through this short description video, you can learn a little more about a critical piece of equipment that our highly-trained technicians use to manipulate the location of moisture within an affected property for extraction.

Water loss incidents, flooding, fire extinguishment, and mold remediation all have aspects to their restoration and removal that hinge on moisture and dampness elimination or control. While our Crew Chief Bryant Falone describes the low-profile models of air movers throughout this clip, we have several units varying in size for a wide array of applications.

The purpose of these machines on our SERVPRO sites is to force water from cavities and saturated materials through high-powered air movement. Ideally, for water restoration and moisture removal applications, these pieces of equipment get used jointly with dehumidifiers. Once the air mover has forced the moisture out of materials or inaccessible locations and into the air, the dehumidification equipment can collect the vapor to remove it from circulation.

As Falone explains in the video, the low-profile models of air movers that our franchise uses have many practical applications to avoid tear outs and demolition work where it is not necessary. By placing this equipment in the space occupied by the toe-kick plates along the bottom of bathroom vanities or baseboards with minimal drywall removal, we can dry out moisture ridden areas without the need for reconstruction and remodeling.

You might not know about all of the tools that each of our experienced franchise technicians has at their disposal for high-caliber restoration work, but these machines and tools make it possible to restore properties quickly and effectively. When your home or business contends with water damage and dampness concerns, let our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina rapid response team should you firsthand how our air mover equipment works.
