Common types of fans used for drying water damage

1. Axial Fans: These fans are commonly used for general air circulation and ventilation. They move large volumes of air and are effective for drying larger areas.

2. Centrifugal Fans: Also known as blower fans, these are effective for directing airflow into specific areas. They can be used for drying carpets, walls, and other surfaces.

3. High-Velocity Fans: These fans produce a focused, high-speed airflow that is useful for drying out concentrated areas of water damage, such as wet carpets or flooring.

4. Air Movers: These are specifically designed for drying water-damaged areas. They produce a high-velocity airflow close to the ground, which helps to evaporate moisture quickly.

5. Dehumidifier Fans: Dehumidifiers often have built-in fans that circulate air through the unit, removing moisture from the air and speeding up the drying process.

6. Floor Drying Fans: These are low-profile fans designed to be placed directly on wet floors to expedite drying.

7. Wall Drying Fans: These fans are designed to be attached to walls to direct airflow into cavities where water may have seeped.
