Most Commonly Used Drying Equipment With Water Damage Restoration

Air movers - affectionately called snails!

Commonly used equipment includes:

  • Air Movers: Used to accelerate air flow and evaporation of moisture from materials for restorative drying.
  • Dehumidifiers: Used to reduce moisture levels, accelerate the drying process in water restoration
  • Floor Drying System: These are high-pressure air mover mats, used during water restoration to dry hardwood floors. This system draws evaporated moisture out of damages areas and creates a vacuum seal on mats to move air from the subfloor to the surface.
  • Air Scrubbers: used for cleaning and controlling air quality in restorations.
  • Hygrometers: Moisture meters used to detect or monitor moisture in most building materials.
  • Submersible pumps: drains standing water from any surface - ideal for flooded basements, farm use, draining standing water from swimming pools, fountains, flooded basements, etc.
  • Extractors: usually used for water extraction from carpet and hard surfaces.

A successfully water damage restoration always begins once the standing water has been removed - though it may not be visible in puddles.  Nevertheless, there are specific methods used for each and every situation.
