SERVPRO of North Knoxville 

Proudly announcing a new way of drying and reducing humidity for the perfect climate control in water disasters, SERVPRO® of North Knoxville is the only company in East Tennessee to own a 950K CDH-138-RL Large Loss Electric Desiccant.  Meeting the demands of larger residential and commercial water restoration jobs with a large-capacity mobile dehumidifier from ARID-Dry™, SERVPRO® of North Knoxville professionals can work more efficiently and with faster time-response.   These skid- and trailer-mounted units are perfectly manufactured for the most proper and substantial vapor pressure reduction and active temperature control management.

What is a Dehumidifier?
The most basic explanation is that a desiccant dehumidifier has a moisture absorbing wheel inside the unit. The wheel is made of silica gel – which is the desiccant (drying) element. Air enters the unit through an opening and travels through the silica gel impregnated wheel. When the air reaches the other side of the wheel it is dry and pushed out of the unit by a high static blower.  Bottom line: it is perhaps the most effective method available of controlling humidity and/or removing moisture from structural materials, hardwood flooring, and providing structural preparation prior to applying coatings.
