Explore our Air Movers and Fans with Production Manager Brad Krauner

Air movers are a staple of the restoration business, where air movement facilitates processes like residue removal and drying. Brad Krauner, a production manager at SERVPRO, explores three common varieties of air movers and the different ways they help.

The centrifugal air mover is a commonly used option since it is a powerful piece of equipment and is very flexible to suit different job requirements. “It moves a lot of air and has, of course, the ability to blow along the floor. We can move it back 45°, or we can set it vertical,” Brad says. The different positioning options eliminate challenges when directing airflow up higher.

Thrust air movers are another helpful category whose low-profile layout makes them suitable in situations involving limited space. Our SERVPRO crews can fit several units in the production trucks ensuring that we have sufficient supply for every task. “...It also will fit into small areas like crawl spaces. Some of our larger fans just won’t fit,” Brad emphasizes.

Axial fans are also unique since they move lots of air. They are most helpful in commercial projects because of the bigger spaces. SERVPRO stocks up on different varieties of air movers to ensure a proper response to different circumstances. Similarly, we also stock various proprietary cleaning agents formulated with ingredients that meet or exceed EPA and Green Seal Design for Environmental Guidelines. Their unique qualities include being non-toxic, zero VOCs, phosphate-free, and rapidly biodegradable.
