P-230A-ModelMost don’t realize just how versatile a piece of equipment the air mover is.  It combines focused air movement and lower power draw, making it the perfect tool to use when one requires a precise stream of air that can be turned on and off instantly. Let’s explore the many ways you can use this workhorse of home, business and industry.

Drying Carpets & Hard Floors

Air movers have been a mainstay in the carpet cleaning industry for years. Their ability to aim air across a large horizontal surface creates quicker dry times, enabling carpet cleaning professionals to get through scheduled jobs with greater efficiency.  Many air movers are daisy chainable, a feature that allows several to be wired together for even a quicker turnaround time.   In the janitorial, foodservice and hospitality industry, nothing gets the job done faster to ensure safer surfaces and maintain lower hotel room downtime.

Water Damage Mitigation

Restoration professionals have long used air movers to quickly dry water on flood / mold mitigation jobsites. XPOWER’s powerful units with daisy chain capability and durable ABS housing perform year after year in situations requiring transportability, maneuverability and reliability.

For drying paint, drywall joint compound, spackle, and anything that needs drying on a home or business remodel, nothing beats the efficient drying capability of an air mover. With 4 drying angles ceiling (90°), wall (45°), kickstand (20°) or straight horizontal (0°), job time is cut significantly when using its powerful, focused stream of air. Gloss and semi-gloss paints which take longer to set dry in 1/2 the time; interior finishes requiring several coats become a no-brainer.

Ventilation

The compact footprint that characterizes many of XPOWER’s air movers makes them easy to move in your home, shop or office when a fresh burst of air is needed. In a construction atmosphere where dry, well ventilated air is important, put your air mover to work to maintain job site air quality. The new XPOWER Scented Air Mover even adds fragrance, while freshening the air.

XPOWER Air Movers are ETL/CETL certified with dual thermal protection, making them safe for home or business. Stackable for transport and available in sizes from 1/8 HP to 1 HP, XPOWER’s air mover line has  the power for the work that needs to be done.

Inflatables are Fun – Use them Properly!

While inflatables are both safe and entertaining, they must be employed properly. Party planning rental services will provide guidance in this area, but for consumers, purchasing and setting up a bounce house can be a daunting endeavor.  If you’re a consumer with a bounce house, make sure you follow your instruction manual or consult a professional.

Safety, of course, is priority #1. Children of all ages can be unaware of hazards when not given proper direction.  Just like any type of recreational equipment, bounce houses require supervision under watchful adult eyes. Below are some safety tips (and don’t forget to use common sense) when you’re ready to set up a bounce house.

  1. Make sure it is being watched by an adult who is vigilant at all times during its use.
  2. Keep track of weather reports in advance and do not employ on windy days.
  3. Be sure the bounce house is tethered well, whether it is with stakes on the ground or water barrels. Monitor the tethering during activity.
  4. Bounce house should be fully inflated at all times. Check your equipment during its use – both the bounce house AND the blower.

If you’ve followed all these strategies, you can be confident knowing that your bounce house experience will be a positive one.
