Why We Use Air Movers

Water Damage Why We Use Air Movers Pictured above, a couple of air movers are drying an apartment unit after it had water damage that leaked from the unit above!

If you’ve ever had a water damage or watched any of our mitigation videos, then you’ve probably seen one of our green fans. Known as air movers, these machines are an essential part of our water damage restoration service.

What is an Air Mover?

An air mover—at its core—is a fan. But what separates it from your traditional fan is that it’s high-velocity, it’s versatile, and it has precision. This degree of functionality allows us to work quickly and more efficiently as opposed to a generic fan.

The Purpose of an Air Mover

In the water mitigation field, an air mover serves two functions: it speeds up the drying process and directs airflow. This is important because after we extract excess water, we have to quickly dry the affected areas to prevent structural damage and mold growth.

As the air flows across the surface of moisture, it speeds up the process from which it evaporates and enters the air. It also pushes the newly created water vapor away from the area so more water molecules can dissipate into the air. We then remove the moisture from the air by running a dehumidifier.

Drying Your Home or Business

We believe in restoring your home to its original condition as soon as possible. That’s why we remain current on industry practices and utilize cutting-edge technology. If you have a water damage at your property and need our assistance making it “Like it never even happened.” call SERVPRO of Catawba County West today at (828) 322-4400!
