Spot-Cooling Technology Dries and Dehumidifies Mold-Prone and Water-Damaged Areas

August 2, 2006


It threatens schools, homes, buildings and hospitals…mold is a growing problem nationwide, causing numerous health conditions and billions of dollars in damage each year. MovinCool portable air-conditioning units have the capabilities to prevent mold and mildew damage. Their unique spot-cooling technology effectively aids in drying out and dehumidifying mold-prone areas on an ongoing basis, or in the event of a disaster when damage occurs from leaks or flooding.

After Hurricane Katrina, relief officials used more than 300 MovinCool’s to aid in disaster relief efforts. Fortunately, most cases are of a much smaller magnitude, yet damage can still be significant for homeowners, building managers and school/hospital administrators. According to the Insurance Information Institute, the insurance industry paid out $2.5 billion in water and mold claims in 2002. Mold can also lead to “sick building syndrome,” which costs U.S. companies over $50 billion a year. Experts attribute the increase in mold infestation to modern building design. Many modern building materials such as fake stucco traps moisture behind walls, leading to mold growth, allowing air-conditioning and heating systems to re-circulate contaminated air.

MovinCool units can help prevent mold, mildew and “sick building syndrome” by
Mold & Mildew Prevention, speeding up the drying process with flexible ducting options and various spot drying configurations. In the fast-drying setup, MovinCool uses high volume warm air to extract moisture much faster than using fans or dehumidifiers alone.

MovinCool units can also cool and dry at the same time by simply ducting the warm air from the room. For low temperature conditions, MovinCool offers the Office Pro Series, while the Classic Plus Series is best suited for higher temperature applications. All MovinCool units are verified for performance by ETL, one of the leading independent testing laboratories and are UL and CUL safety listed. They also have capabilities to pump water 100 feet to reach faraway drains (pump optional, collection tank standard).

“The MovinCool fast-drying, dehumidifying and cooling set-up speeds the drying process and spot cools at the same time,” said John Doran, manager, Heat Management Department. “It can mean the difference between preventing mold and mildew issues or incurring up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in reconstruction and ventilation costs."

Because of the prevalence of mold contamination today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed Standards on Mold Prevention. MovinCool portable air-conditioning units are a resource to help maintain many of the EPA standards listed including:
· Clean and dry wet or damp spots within 48 hours;
· Prevent moisture due to condensation by increasing surface temperature or reducing moisture level in air;
· Maintain low indoor humidity, ideally 30-50 percent relative humidity (RH), and
· Don’t let foundations stay wet, provide drainage and slope the ground away from the foundation.

MovinCool units with their multi-purpose capabilities allow individuals to fight mold and mildew quickly and affordably. Each MovinCool model is completely self-contained, portable and designed to fit a wide variety of home, work and building space areas. They can be brought in to handle problem spots in minutes and can move quickly from place to place as needed because they simply roll in, plug in and turn on to provide instant spot cooling and drying in any critical area.
