Water Damage Cleanup & Restoration Equipment
DRYMORE uses only the latest in drying technology. From the truck mounted vacuums to the dehumidification and air moving machines, we use the top of the line equipment to dry everything fast and get you back to normal sooner. We focus on restoring water damaged structures, so we invest in the best equipment available today. We do it right.
Truck Mounted Vacuum Machines
We use truck mounted vacuum machines with at least 20 horsepower to extract all standing water thoroughly and quickly. Some companies use smaller portable machines that don’t have the vacuum power or airflow essential to removing the most water.
The more water that is removed and the faster it is removed, the less water damage there will be. The structure and contents won’t be in standing water as long, and the water in hidden areas behind walls will drain more completely so it too can be vacuumed. We believe that water extraction is a critical step in successfully drying and restoring a structure, and should only be done with the best and most powerful equipment.
Low Grain Technology Dehumidifiers
Although less expensive equipment is available, DRYMORE uses only the new Low Grain technology dehumidifiers to dry homes and businesses. These dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air, up to 28 gallons a day per machine, and enable the structure and contents to dry faster, just as something dries much faster in the dessert than in a humid climate. Dehumidifiers also keep the humidity of the entire affected area low enough to prevent secondary water damage from condensation and the growth of mold. As the water in a wet area begins to evaporate, the air becomes saturated and moisture begins to condense on other surfaces just as it does in a bathroom with a hot shower running. In a short time this will cause secondary water damage. Low Grain dehumidifiers pull air from the affected areas and remove more grains of water from the air. The super dried air with the low grain count of water is then directed to the wettest areas. Another advantage of this new technology is that the machines run much more quietly, enabling you to carry on with your life or business with minimal disruption. We also have the ability to dry large commercial buildings with our truck mounted desiccant dehumidifiers. These large machines can handle buildings with tens of thousands of square feet.
High Volume Air Movers
As the dehumidifiers produce super dry air, our high volume air movers deliver that air to the wet areas that need it most. These powerful but quiet air movers each move 2,700 cubic feet of air per minute. The moisture-saturated air at the surface of the wet structural materials and contents is constantly being replaced by the super dry air produced by the dehumidifiers.
This process exponentially increases the speed at which everything dries. The high volume air movers also have the power to force this air into the wet areas that are hidden or inaccessible, like behind walls. The combination of the right dehumidifiers and air movers ensure a fast, thorough drying process.
After the source of any odor (mustiness, sewage, garbage, animals, etc.) is eliminated, sometimes there is a lingering residual odor. Commercial strength Ozone Generators are the most effective way of removing (not covering up) these odors. Did you ever notice how fresh the air smells when you go outside after a thunder storm? That rain fresh smell is the result of the ozone produced in the atmosphere by the lightening. The ozone destroys organic odors in the atmosphere, leaving that clean fresh smell.
How It Works
An oxygen molecule contains 2 atoms of oxygen. But the ozone produced by Ozone Generators contains 3 atoms of oxygen. The 50% more oxygen in each ozone molecule oxidizes the organic odor molecules, destroying them. In our combined 36 years’ experience we have encountered and eliminated innumerable odor problems including those caused by mold, smoke, animals, rotting food, and all types of decay. Once the source of the odor is removed, the commercial strength Ozone Generators DRYMORE uses are the most effective means of eliminating odors.
