Each December, Unlimited Restoration, Inc. celebrates the 12 Days of Restoration which highlights tools, pieces of equipment, or procedures used in our industry-leading commercial and industrial property restoration processes. Continue reading to learn more!
The We’re On It Profile is a pre-loss planning document developed with an expert from URI that can aid in business continuity planning and minimize business interruption following a property loss. It is a critical piece to Unlimited Restoration’s We’re On It Preferred Partnership Program which was designed to provide key strategic partners the coverage they require.

Moisture meters allow our IICRC-trained mitigation technicians to locate and measure moisture damage and map out the drying strategy for property damage caused by a water loss. They are also used to ensure drying is fully complete before any placed equipment is removed.
Dehumidifiers are a critical piece of equipment for structural drying projects. Low-Grain Refrigerant (LGR) Dehumidifiers are one version where air enters the appliance, the double-cooling system lowers its temperature and condensation forms on the device’s coils, separating the moisture from the air. The air is then released back into the room with the humidity “removed”!
Unlike the LGR Dehumidifiers from yesterday, Desiccant Dehumidifiers use chemical attraction instead of condensation to remove moisture from the air. The most important piece of machinery in one of these units is the “desiccant wheel” – a network of small airways lined with silica gel.
The large Desiccantunits used by URI for commercial and industrial property losses are some of the most recognizable pieces of equipment used by our team. Who could miss those yellow hoses?!
Did you know that URI has a fleet of Catastrophe (CAT) Recovery Response Trailers? These specially equipped tractor trailers enable URI to scale up resources and personnel quickly to provide rapid emergency response for both small and large-scale disasters.
Air movers are must-have equipment for water mitigation and restoration. Today, we’ll introduce the Axial Air Mover, which moves air horizontally, producing high airflow and ensuring the drying process is completed fast. These are an excellent tool for drying large, wide surfaces.
Unlike the Axial Air Mover covered yesterday, Centrifugal Air Movers can be adjusted to send air in a few different directions rather than just horizontally. This makes Centrifugal Air Movers a great option for drying smaller areas and tight spaces.
Foggers, or fogging equipment, have the ability to turn a chemical into fog that can be sprayed in a space to eliminate odors and kill bacteria. Foggers are used in many property restoration projects, but maybe most notably have been used recently to combat the COVID-19 pandemic by aiding in the application of disinfectants in commercial and industrial properties by the URI Team.
Both catastrophic and more mundane property losses can result in a loss of power in a commercial or industrial building. Generators are crucial to providing a power supply for mitigation equipment so that the URI team can minimize business disruption for your property and not have a minute wasted in providing fast and reliable emergency response!
When a commercial or industrial property is damaged by a fire, Soda Blasters are often used during the restoration process. Soda Blasters use sodium bicarbonate, yep! the same compound in baking soda, and pressure to remove dirt, soot, and debris.
Air scrubbers are a multi-purpose tool that can address an already existing issue, while also preventing bigger problems from occurring! Air scrubbers remove odors, particles, and pollution from the air and ensure that no mold appears after water damage has occurred.
The Injectidry Wall and Floor Mats are specialty drying equipment that’s powerful enough to push air through either walls or flooring deemed salvageable, reducing claims by preserving viable materials.
We hope you enjoyed Unlimited Restoration’s 12 Days of Restoration. Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season!
