Andrews provides office canteen with drying rental solution following flood

When burst pipework at a large Fleet Street office building caused a communal canteen area to flood, the mechanical services company responsible for the premises contacted us in search of some hired drying equipment. Although the damaged pipework had been addressed, there were concerns that the subsequent flooding could affect the interior’s surfaces unless restoration could begin immediately.

The incident occurred towards the end of the working week, presenting us with an ideal window over the weekend to tackle the issue while the building was unoccupied. Naturally, much of the dampness was by now beneath the floor as water had seeped through. This could have been problematic, but the client decided to cut a series of holes in the floor itself to ensure that the void below was dried properly. Failure to do so may have compromised timber joists and increased the likelihood of mould growing, so it was crucial that the whole area was desiccated.

Andrews Dehumidification assists Sheffield school construction

The construction of a new school in Sheffield prompted one of the country’s leading infrastructural companies to get in touch with us to assist with the latter stages of completion. The contractor in charge of the building contacted us regarding a temporary heating hire arrangement which was needed to support the laying of wood flooring.

Before this process could take place, however, it was important to ensure that the temperature of the areas in which wooden panels were to be laid had been kept at 18⁰C or above for at least 48 hours. This was to ensure that air humidity was at a normal level for habitable premises but also to dry any concrete or surfaces that could have conceivably been damp or contained moisture.

Let’s talk refrigerant dehumidifiers

Refrigerant dehumidifiers, work by drawing damp air from a particular area into the unit itself, before passing it over a cold evaporator coil, bringing the air below its dewpoint temperature. This causes the moisture contained within the air to turn into condensation, the condensation is then collected from the unit’s coils and either drained into a collection tank or pumped away to a suitable drain. Our high capacity and reliable industrial building dryer range can handle up to 600 litres of moisture removal per day!

Swift intervention from Andrews Dehumidification Hire saves international food producer thousands

Once a potato yield has been gathered, it is absolutely imperative that all produce is stored appropriately in order to maximise its shelf life. A potato’s high moisture content makes it extremely susceptible to quickly developing bacterial soft rot and becoming unsaleable as a result.

Process potatoes – those typically farmed for fast food purposes – are harvested during autumn and are often difficult to store safely because of damp seasonal conditions. High moisture content outdoors can often cause ventilation systems to lose effectiveness which will in turn lead to delicate crops becoming spoiled if appropriate steps are not taken at an early stage.
