Since 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.
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.
