The Power of Commercial-Grade Dehumidifiers

Headquartered in Ocala, Florida, the general construction and remodeling contractor Restoration Specialists also serves clients in the Brooksville, Gainesville, Lake City, Lecanto, and Leesburg areas. Restoration Specialists offers dehumidification among its diverse suite of services.

With causes that range from storms and flooding to broken pipes and water from firefighting equipment, water damage is extremely common in homes and businesses alike. A quality building contractor will use the right types and number of commercial-grade dehumidifiers to save drywall, plaster, framing, insulation, carpeting, and other essential elements from water damage. By removing moisture from the air, these devices encourage the evaporation of liquid water that has puddled and moisture that has penetrated materials throughout the room.

The consumer-grade humidifiers that average people buy through retail stores pale in comparison to the commercial-grade dehumidifiers that contractors use. Even the most powerful consumer-grade humidifiers that are designed for large areas can only remove about 50 to 60 pints of moisture from the air each day. In comparison, a quality portable consumer-grade humidifier can remove as many as 250 pints of atmospheric moisture daily.
