Why SERVPRO Uses Certain Products and Equipment For The Best Possible Outcome After Water Damage In Your St. Petersburg Home

Evaporative drying is a fixture of water restoration for St. Petersburg properties, and often involves a variety of cutting-edge tools and machines. Achieving moisture content readings below the established baseline begins with the proper deployment of air movers and dehumidifiers throughout the damaged portions of the house. A balance between these two critical components of moisture removal can maximize drying efforts for saturated materials and contents. 

While there are two types of air movers that our SERVPRO team uses to force dry air across damp surfaces or environments, often the water damage in St. Petersburg residences can benefit from the deployment of centrifugal air movers. These machines pull high volumes of air into the unit and disperse a direct blast of warm, dry air at designated surfaces and materials. 

Higher Pressure

Because airflow created by centrifugal air movers gets directed through a system of tubes in the machine itself, the output has a higher pressure than axial air movers that also can get used in restoration jobs. This increased pressure makes the unit ideal for focused drying efforts on specific portions of materials and contents saturated by a water loss incident. 

Greater Output

While there is a lower force in the output of air from centrifugal machines, the continual flow can offer a steadier delivery than what gets expected from axial options. The steady flow directed at a specific point can make evaporative drying efficient and fast. 

Two Designs

Centrifugal air movers typically come in two separate designs, including the standard shape and a lower profile model. Ordinary air movers have some versatility, given their height off the ground and the force of the output. Low profile models also exist to help our SERVPRO team direct airflow under furniture or into inaccessible areas where migrating water has traveled. 

Air movers of any variety are the centerpiece for useful and timely drying of water-damaged residences. Our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg team can help with a considerable assortment of centrifugal air movers to help after a disaster. Give us a call anytime at (727) 522-0000.
