Restoration requires equipment as tough as the jobs you work on. Property damage from hurricanes, flooding, fires, plumbing leaks and more can take several days of continuous work to mitigate, and you need restoration equipment that is up to the task. The most common tools of the restoration business are air movers, dehumidifiers and air scrubbers. It is impossible to do a thorough job without these items. Often, disaster restoration professionals use these three pieces of equipment together.
Commercial air movers significantly decrease drying time, so you can get to work repairing and rebuilding. They provide a means of increasing airflow to facilitate drying before water can cause mold growth or lead to structural damage. On water restoration jobs, you may need your air movers to run for several days without stopping. Commercial-grade products are meant to stand up to this much continual use. Fire damage remediation will also require the circulation of air in conjunction with commercial air scrubbers to remove soot and other airborne contaminants from the environment
When selecting the right air mover to buy, consider the size and quality of the unit. You can potentially save energy by using an air mover that is the right size for your job. A smaller unit is ideal for fitting into confined spaces, while the larger units can dry a whole floor quickly.

Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air to dry the environment more quickly. Using a commercial dehumidifier in a controlled space will significantly increase the drying speed. A dehumidifier will make water damage restoration work more efficient, especially when used in combination with an air mover.
LGR dehumidifiers use a double cooling system to create lower temperatures within the piece of equipment to increase the amount of condensation, this increases the amount of water removed from the air. These are an excellent choice for severe water damage restoration, since they work faster and remove greater amounts of moisture quickly.
Conventional dehumidifiers also condense the water in the air to remove moisture, but since they do not feature the double cooling system, they remove less moisture than LGR models. Conventional dehumidifiers also tend to be less expensive and more portable than LGR models. Choosing the right type of equipment for your restoration job can affect your efficiency and profit margin.
When deciding on the right dehumidifiers to purchase, you’ll want to consider the following factors:
A careful analysis of your business and your available cash will help you determine which dehumidifier to buy.
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers provides a rating system to make it easy for you to compare different models of dehumidifiers. For AHAM ratings, equipment is tested at 60 percent humidity and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which is considered “average” conditions. AHAM ratings are reported in Pints per Day (PPD), and these represent the amount of moisture a dehumidifier can remove from the air in typical temperature and humidity conditions.
Many dehumidifiers also have a saturation rating. The saturation rating evaluates use in more extreme environmental conditions than AHAM ratings. Saturation is measured at 90 percent humidity and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This rating represents a dehumidifier’s maximum water removing capabilities and is also reported in PPD.
Understanding these two ratings can help you to better understand the capabilities of dehumidifiers that you are considering for purchase and determine which one best fits your needs.

HEPA air filters remove tiny particles from the air, particles as small as .003 microns. This is important for fire damage restoration when there are soot and smoke particles lingering in the air, or in water damage situations when bacteria, mold or other contaminants are present. Removing these particulates from the air is essential to remediation.
When shopping for air scrubbers, there are a couple of specs to consider:
Think about the jobs where you will use an air scrubber, your ability to transport and move it and the amount of money you can afford to spend on this essential equipment for restoration work.
