What is a Carpet Dryer? Can’t I use an ordinary fan? 

What is a Carpet Dryer? 

A carpet dryer, sometimes referred to as an air blower, is a versatile, portable piece of equipment that can be used to dry areas rapidly and effectively after cleaning or from minor water damage after storms or flooding. In open or constrained settings, the carpet dryer circulates air for cooling, ventilation, extraction, and drying.

These machines can effectively and swiftly remove moisture from carpeting, walls, and other surfaces with its high-velocity airflow. This effectively prevents the growth of mould and mildew, both of which can be harmful to one’s health. They can be positioned appropriately to create an airflow direction that aids in the efficient drying of walls, carpets, upholstery, and floors after water saturation. An electrical outlet is necessary for an efficient carpet drying fan so that it may use more force to dry a space more rapidly, reducing the chance of mould and mildew growth by preventing water from penetrating underlying structures.

Can’t I use an ordinary fan? 

You wouldn’t be wrong if you thought a carpet dryer was just a fancy type of fan. They can be used in many similar ways. Even  so, it’s important to understand the basic differences between them and which one to choose. 

Carpet dryers often provide a more direct air flow compared to fans. They take in outside air as the blades rotate, usually from the side, and propel it forward at high speed. This particular type of “fan” is therefore ideal for delivering a powerful, focused air flow to a specific location. 

However, the fan does a good job of providing direct airflow to a fairly larger area. The weaker and constant air circulation makes it ideal for cooling and ventilating large rooms. A fan might do the trick if cooling or ventilation are your main concerns. However, a carpet dryer is the best option for you if you require a more powerful option.
