Construction drying equipment is utilized on a daily basis at job sites worldwide, providing optimal conditions for a variety of tasks.

With numerous years of experience assisting project managers and construction related drying needs, our team was able to gather some of the most relevant information on the available equipment and options.
In the upcoming guide to construction and industrial drying rentals, you will have a better understanding of what might work best for your particular situation.
What specifically does drying equipment help dry out at construction sites?
Construction drying rental equipment helps dry out a multitude of things at construction sites, including concrete slabs and floors, drywall, wood and millwork, mold or microbial growth on various surfaces, materials, and even buildings themselves.
For example, a construction project may be pouring concrete flooring or slabs but runs into issues with unexpected moisture or water that is affecting the proper curing of the concrete. In a situation like this, drying equipment will be beneficial to ensure the correct curing processes. Lastly, drying equipment is often used for restoration & remediation rental purposes.
Why is construction drying so important? What benefits does it offer?
As anyone that has dealt with water or moisture issues knows, the damages and headaches that are caused cannot be understated. Construction related drying processes serve important functions and are beneficial for numerous reasons. For one, the drying process removes or minimizes the amount of water or moisture that is causing or would likely result in problems. It can help create the ideal drying environment that is necessary for many materials, like concrete, wood, drywall, and others.
Construction drying also helps remove or eliminate the growth of mold or mildew, which is both a costly and hazardous issue at construction sites. Moisture control in construction sites is closely monitored and implemented to proactively prevent these types of situations. Finally, when construction sites are efficiently run and properly dried, workers can safely get the job done, in a more efficient manner.
What are the most common rental equipment options to dry construction sites?
Mobile Air and Power Rentals utilizes a fleet of specialized equipment to dry construction sites, all dependent on the environmental conditions and needs on site. For projects that are dealing with excess heat that may be affecting moisture levels, rental air conditioners, chillers, or cooling towers can help.
On the other hand, construction jobs in cold weather environments often rely on direct and indirect fired heaters, along with electric heaters to keep them dry. In high moisture and high humidity situations, desiccant and LGR dehumidifiers, along with air movers, can be a great solution. Finally, when power is needed to run this equipment, our generator rentals can assist.
