It’s easy to underestimate the cost of restoring a water-damaged home until you’ve experienced such a disaster firsthand. From hiring contractors to replacing furniture to finding a temporary residence, the expenses will add up quickly. One way to save money and possibly recover your furniture, carpet, and other belongings is to rent or buy commercial drying equipment.
After you’ve extracted the water, air movers and dehumidifiers can expel the excess moisture that contributes to dry rot, mold growth, and structural damage. If you’re looking for emergency drying equipment to restore your home after a flood or pipe leak, contact Allied Rental Company and we’ll help you find the best system for your needs.

How Much Does Commercial Drying Equipment Cost?
After a major disaster, the last thing you want to do is pay for restoration equipment that you don’t need. But commercial drying equipment can save you a small fortune by helping you recover furniture and carpet, and possibly preventing mold growth and structural damage.
The cost of commercial drying equipment can vary significantly from one unit to the next. At Allied Rental Co, we’ve hand-selected some of the best units available in San Francisco to ensure our clients get a fair price on the most efficient and powerful air movers and dehumidifiers.
There are several factors that affect the cost of drying equipment including:
The power of your air mover will determine how large of an area it will dry and how quickly it will do so. Power for these units is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). This is a measurement of how much air the machine can move in 60 seconds. If you need help finding an air mover with the right CFM for your needs, contact ARC today at 415-644-5792.
Capacity should be one of your primary considerations when renting or buying a dehumidifier. Capacity is the measurement of the amount of water the unit’s tray can hold before it has to be emptied.
If the room you intend to dehumidify is particularly large (at least 2,000 square feet), look for a dehumidifier that can handle 22 to 37 pints. For smaller rooms (500 square feet or less), look for a unit that can handle 10 to 16 pints.
3. Extra Features
A dehumidifier with the bare essentials will certainly cost less than a more advanced design, but there are some features that you really shouldn’t go without. For example, if you don’t have the time to monitor and empty the water tray, consider getting a system with automatic drainage.
You should also consider investing in an automatic defrost function, which will prevent your system from freezing over on one of San Francisco’s frigid-cold nights. A final feature to consider is an auto-restart setting. This will turn your unit back on automatically after a power outage.
