The 10 Best Air Movers
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in April of 2020. Water ingress and flooding can severely damage property, and structural dampness can badly affect the health of those who live or work on the premises. An air mover can provide a simple solution to a potentially dangerous problem if tackled early on. Aside from water damage issues, they are also good for creating better air circulation, ventilating property, and assisting with sanitation issues.

There are many uses for an air mover in performing both domestic and industrial tasks. Aside from their main use, which is the restoration of water damage and the drying of leaks and flooded areas, they can be used for janitorial and sanitation jobs, ventilation and air circulation, cooling premises, and removing fumes from enclosed spaces.
For those attempting to dry a larger area, most of the models ranked here include the option to daisy-chain several units together, using their integral power outlets. In particular, the AFX Power Cat 1 can link a maximum of five and the AlorAir Zeus 900 can link a maximum of six items at once. When unlinked, the outlets can be used for different means, such as for powering other tools and charging devices.
There are two categories of air mover in this ranking: the commercial air blower, such as the AlorAir Zeus Extreme, which is better suited to drying duties concerning large spaces, and air movers such as the DeWalt DXAM-2260, Mounto 1Hp, and Xpower X-830, which are more compact and have smaller apertures, which direct and concentrate their airflow.
