Ready for a flood of hires

New Andrew Sykes FD30 dehumidifier available for hire from Didcot PlantThe cold snap in February put our fleet of dehumidifiers under pressure and we struggled to keep up with demand. To remedy this shortfall we purchased five of the Andrews Sykes FD30 dehumidifiers.

The FD30 is ideal for building drying, minimizing building times by creating the perfect conditions for the ‘wet’ trades such as plasterers and decorators, as well as helping with drying out after flooding and water damage situations.

It is suitable for both domestic and industrial usage.
