The Importance of Air Movers

2/11/2020 (Permalink)

The air mover is a very important piece of equipment for professional water damage restoration.  Sometimes referred to as squirrel cage fans because of their appearance, these instruments are specifically designed and engineered to deliver a high volume of airflow over and under surfaces to expedite the drying process.  They dry wet surfaces by causing increased evaporation due to air movement and are vital in avoiding prolonged drying times, the number one reason for extensive damage in water damage situations.  Increased airflow also inhibits the growth of microorganisms.  A air mover works by having a powerful blower wheel driven by a thermally protected electric motor.  As the wheel spins, it discharges a large flow of air through the snout at high speeds.  The volume of airflow is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM) and is determined by the size of the motor, its RPM and the size of the wheel.
