Air movers are an essential and necessary tool for drying structures of homes.  Air movers help move large amounts of air over surfaces to dry them. Air movers also help the dehumidifiers work to their optimum performance.

At SERVPRO of Tracy there are a number of different air movers that can be utilized depending on the size of the job: velo air movers, sahara air movers, ace air movers and vortex or axial air movers.

  1. Velo air movers are low-profile air movers that can be used to get to hard to reach areas and a great way to assist in the drying of wet carpeting. 
  2. Sahara air movers are great for drying carpets and directing air upwards to helping with drying ceilings. 
  3. One of the most common air movers that SERVPRO of Tracy uses is the Ace fan.  These air movers are great for directing large amounts of air either forward, upward, downward and use little power(lower amperage). 
  4. The last type of air mover that we use is the Vortex air mover or Axial air mover.  This air mover works great for crawlspace.  They are very effective at creating negative pressure and pushing humid air out of a space.

Air movers work great when paired with dehumidifiers.  The air mover can move the hot dry air over the wet surface you are trying to dry.  Without use of air movers being used throughout the  drying process it would delay our SERVPRO of Tracy crews who are drying the structure.
