Air movers: Another very important piece of equipment that SERVPRO of Yorba Linda/ Brea frequently uses is the air mover. In this photo, you can see a number of them.
An air mover is basically a heavy duty industrial fan that produces high-velocity airflow to promote air circulation and increased evaporation. The result is faster drying time, improved ventilation, and cooling.
Because an air mover increases air circulation, it can be used to dry out carpets, walls, floors, and wall cavities in a minimum amount of time.
The job shown in the photo was from a water damage restoration project in Hacienda Heights where a commercial structure had been damaged following a storm. In addition to air blowers, we also used dehumidifiers, and built containments. In some areas, we also need pumps to remove about 3" of standing water.
