Air Movers

When We Use Them:

We typically use air movers in situations where there has been a water loss. This means that your home or business has suffered a leak, flood, or another water-related disaster. Your property could have even suffered from a fire and sustained water damage during the extinguishing process. As you can see, as long as moisture is involved, an air mover might be helpful to the drying process by enhancing evaporation at the surface level to reduce overall drying time. 

How They Work:

Air movers use fans to increase airflow, allowing highly saturated air to be replaced with drier air. While this might just sound like a normal fan, our SERVPRO air movers are very powerful and when used properly, are far more effective than a couple of fans. Our crew has gone through training to learn the science of drying, so they know how to place air movers in the best location for optimum dry times. In some cases, there may be multiple wet walls, wet drywall and baseboards, requiring our team to position the air movers in a way that creates a vortex of air that circulates through the walls.

While there are many other machines and equipment accessories we use at SERVPRO of South Mecklenburg County, this is a great overall look at our most commonly used pieces of equipment. This machine helps us make it "Like it never even happened."  Don’t forget we are always Here to help,® so give us a call, day or night, at (704) 840-6112.
