We keep an updated library of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on all products we use, and are happy to provide this information upon request. Because they are industrial-strength, our humidifiers, air movers and axial fans do tend to run loudly, but they also allow us to properly and more quickly dry out the damaged space, which is necessary to prevent mold growth or rotting of surfaces. All of our equipment is safe for humans and pets, but we ask you not to move the equipment or electrical wires, which we place strategically to maintain safety.
