Commercial Air Movers

A commercial air mover, particularly the ones that use centrifugal force, is usually used to dry walls, floors and ceilings in areas that have been damaged by water. In our business, we use the top quality air movers in our work mainly to push out the hot dry air that the dehumidifiers puts out into the walls. Commercial air movers are also sometimes used as a carpet dryer or blower.

The Viking Centrifugal Air Movers, which are known in the industry as one of the top equipments in this category, is the equipment that we use in our work. As opposed to the other models, this particular brand is known for its performance and quality.

Usage Scenario

We responded to a North Las Vegas water damage job, and we noticed that the walls in the home were completely drenched.  After removing the outer wall, we had to dry out the interior hollow area where insulation sits.

A normal fan would not be able to dry this out thoroughly
