Why Do I Need to Use Air Movers and Not Regular Fans?
SERVPRO's High-Velocity Air Movers Provide Targeted Airflow in Your Niagara Falls Home
While fans and HVAC systems may support proper ventilation as you dry out your Niagara Falls home, they do not promote adequate evaporation from surfaces. Time is of the essence during your home restoration. Otherwise, the impacted areas are subject to secondary damage. Professional air-movers allow for more thorough drying since they can target the surface directly.
How Do Air Movers Remove Excess Water?
Air Movers Work in Conjunction with Extraction and Dehumidification Equipment
Water removal from your Niagara Falls house is a multi-tiered process. After our IICRC specialists vacuum away excess water with portable extraction equipment, they move on to air mover and dehumidifier use. Air movers help speed up the evaporation process. As the surface water evaporates, it saturates the air just above the surface, making the air movers essential in pushing the saturate away and replacing it with warm, dry air from the dehumidifiers.
How Many Air Movers Do I Need in My Home?
- Technicians identify the class of water damage to decide the level of damage and the amount of required equipment.
- It is essential to use enough air movers to facilitate consistent airflow across every wet surface.
- Typically, technicians place one air mover per 150 to 300 square feet of the impacted area.
Technicians balance the number of air movers with dehumidifiers since too few air movers slow the drying process, while too many air movers can cause secondary water damage. It is crucial that the air movers do not cause more evaporation than the dehumidification equipment can pull out at once.
