Effective Tools for Office Water Restoration

After leaks or burst pipes, offices can become heavily damaged by migrating water. We specialize in Large Loss cleanup and drying services and have tools to help with disasters of any size.

Understanding the Type of Drying Tools Needed

Water restoration for Marlborough offices starts with having the right tools. We have several units that can help with efficient drying like:

  • Axial – Air movers like this address a broader focus area, ideal for moist environments or a more general drying needed on an entire room rather than specific wall points.
  • Centrifugal – Unlike axial units, these machines are meant to have a target area to focus blasts of warm air. As such, they require monitoring and regular movement to be most effective.
  • Low-Profile – These machines are of the centrifugal variety but are designed with a smaller and shorter frame to better address cavities underneath fixtures or damp pockets in confined spaces.

The Proper Placement of Air Movers

Knowing where to position air movers can be an important part of efficient drying for your office. The objective is always to limit the time you are stalled for production. We place units several feet away from the wall at a 45-degree angle, so the blasts of warm air can impact a greater surface, not blast back at the device and reduce its effectiveness.

How Do You Know How Many to Use?

The frequency of placing air movers and where they will be most effective is part of an ongoing evaluation of the drying process. Our proprietary software SERVPRO DryBook helps us to track the progress of evaporation and drying in a structure and use this data to make decisions in real-time about the frequency of air mover placement and which type of machine is best suited to achieve the desired moisture content range.

Your office will need several drying tools to return to preloss condition, and one of the most heavily used and required of these are air movers. When disasters strike, we have hundreds of these tools available to help your business when you call our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team at (978) 486-9868.
