Drying Equipment Stats

10/25/2018 (Permalink)

If you have a water damage in your Cheatham, Robertson or Dickson County home you want the restoration company that completes the dry out to have adequate equipment to take care of the job set before them. SERVPRO® of Cheatham, Robertson and Dickson County takes great pride in ensuring that their equipment is kept in good working condition and up to industry standard. Some of the key factors that we look at when purchasing or replacing drying equipment are:


In air movers we look at the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute). This is important because it calculates the amount of air flow that can be provided over a certain amount of space per minute. This will help with determining dry time based on the amount of water that has been dispersed onto an area. In dehumidifiers we look at the PPD (Pints per Day). This is how much moisture/humidity is pulled from the air during the drying process.

Low Amps-

Older equipment pulls more amperage to run than newer equipment. Each plug (depending on the type) allows for so much amperage to be pulled by what is plugged in. If you plug in two pieces of equipment and combined they are pulling more amperage than the plug or circuit can offer you will trip breakers and essentially be required to set a generator to adequately power the equipment needed.


Moving equipment around from job site to job site can often times take its toll. The long term durability is very important to ensure that we always have reliable equipment to place on job sites.


In all of our equipment we look to ensure that it has been tested and meets the requirements of a NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory). It is very important to our company that our employees and customers are safe around our equipment.
