Carpet Medics Adds New TED System

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

003Since 1993 Carpet Medics has served Southeast Arkansas with the industry’s leading carpet, upholstery, & tile cleaning, and through these years, they have met the needs of their customers when disaster stuck with either flood or smoke damage restoration.004
This year, owner Randy Phillips has expanded their restoration service with the implementation of the advanced drying system known as the TES Drying System. TES stands for Thermal Energy System and provides heat directly to the moisture for accelerated drying. This drying process can reduce a typical 4 to 5 day drying time to 1 or 2 days.
Phillips explains that the theory of direct heat drying is fairly simple and compares it to drying your hair with a blow dryer as opposed to just drying it in a warm room.

After several years of attempting to get governmental assistance to help fund tornado sirens for Drew County, we’ve finally got funding to assist with the purchase of 27 tower sirens, which will be scattered around the county.

But as the years have passed by, many feel that the towers have been surpassed by digital technology, as the best way to go, to notify county residents of impending disanter, should it occur.

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

code redIn the years that Drew County has been chasing the seemingly illusive vision of having countywide weather and tornado sirens, it seems technology has passed by that system of weather notifications.
