1. LGR dehumidifiers
Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers use advanced technology to
achieve rapid drying. Once a conventional dehumidifier has already reduced
humidity to around 30%, an LGR dehumidifier is used to finish the job.
These dehumidifiers pre-cool the intake air, which leads to drier, more
breathable air. They are also more energy efficient than regular
dehumidifiers and restore affected areas faster.
2. Air movers
Air movers are the best way to dry carpet and other flooring affected by
water damage. An air mover is not a fan: Fans fail to concentrate air
movement at the ground level. These machines solve that problem. They blow
air directly over the floor which causes water molecules to evaporate
quickly. Professionals use air movers for cycles of thirty minutes. Within
a few hours, most of the water is removed from the floor.
3. Moisture meters
Moisture meters provide water damage restoration professionals with two
key pieces of information: First, they measure the severity of the
situation in particular areas and second, they identify the source of the
leak or burst. They also help by measuring moisture levels before and
after water reduction tasks have taken place, allowing contractors to be
sure the job is complete.
4. Air scrubbers
If left untreated for even a few days, water damage can lead to the growth
of mold. Mold makes the air dangerous to breathe for anyone. It can be
particularly dangerous for people with breathing conditions like asthma.
Air scrubbers suck pollutants through a filter to clean the air. Using an
air scrubber guarantees the air is safe and breathable after water damage
5. Self-propelled dump containers
This last item does not help with the water removal process, but is still
beneficial to have when dealing with water damage. It’s helpful because in
most cases of water damage, there is excess debris and other various items
that are damaged beyond repair and need to be removed from the job site. A
self-propelled dump container makes disposal of these items easy and
They also can be used to move air scrubbers, air blowers, and other
equipment between floors.
