If you think you might need to rent a dehumidifier, it can be confusing knowing where to start. Dehumidifiers come in varying sizes and for different purposes, so the correct rental may not always be clear to a first-time renter. We’ll walk you through the rental process so you’ll know exactly what you need, and where to find it.
Before we can tell you where to rent your portable dehumidifier, we’ll have to determine which unit is best for you. The following factors are some important ones when considering a rental.
What do you need it for?
What’s your reason for renting a dehumidifier? Commercial or industrial reasons such as water damage, restoration, protecting certain goods, or creating a more comfortable work environment could influence the type of portable dehumidifier that you need. Additionally, many projects benefit from a combination of portable dehumidifiers and spot coolers. You may want to consider renting both units.
How big is your space?
There is also a difference in unit size depending on the size of the area you’re trying to dehumidify. For example, dehumidifying a warehouse might require more powerful or multiple units. On the other hand, a single hospital room could benefit from one, small dehumidifier rental. To see a chart explaining our dehumidifier sizing, see our previous blog post.
Pickup or delivery?
Will you require pickup or delivery for your rental? If you need to pick it up yourself, do you have a truck and the manpower? Unless you’re looking for a smaller unit, portable dehumidifiers can be heavy. Think about whether or not you’re equipped to handle a pickup or need it delivered.
What to Look for in a Company
There are plenty of important qualities to look for when doing business with any company — credibility, affordability, reliability. When it comes to air quality, fast response time should also be a vital factor. For most renters, a company with multiple units in its inventory is best. Having options makes it more likely that you’ll find the best dehumidifier for your needs.
