Oct. 14, 2014 – Dozens of friends and clients of L.M. Temperature Control converged on the Mississauga, Ont., rental operator on Oct. 9 to help kick off the launch of its new commercial drying division. The event had a circus theme, with tents, popcorn and performers in circus garb. Tasty food and beverages were plentiful and interested attendees got a chance to look around LMTC's 20,000-square-foot warehouse and take in the impressive array of equipment on display.

Iron in the yard included low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers, dessicant dehumidifiers, axial and turbo air movers and Hepa air scrubbers. Many generators, light towers, fan and other common rental offerings were also on hand. The new drying division is emphasizing its expertise in helping clients arrive at solutions for tough environmental problems involving flooding, water damage from fire-fighting, mould remediation, poor interior humidity control and other water-related issues facing industrial and commercial customers. They are offering 24-hour emergency service. Lawrence Lum has partnered with LMTC owner Luis Salazar to head the division. "Commercial drying is different because of the emergency aspect and the need to really understand your customers' problem," said Lum at the event. "We have invested in a really great fleet of equipment to handle any situation."

Salazar sees strong growth ahead for the new division. "We have only gotten started but we have already been out as far as Thunder Bay and to many locations in the north with our drying service," he said. "We are ready to go west, eastern Canada, anywhere it is needed. Things are going very well."

One of the attendees at the event was Steven Wolfer, senior environmental manager for York Environmental Solutions, one of Canada's largest environmental remediation firms and a sponsor of the event. Wolfer couldn't say enough about the help he and his teams have received from LMTC. "It is a lot easier for me to make a phone call and have LMTC show up with all the right equipment than have to buy and maintain everything myself," he explained. "They know what is needed for different situations and the equipment is always in good shape and ready to go." Wolfer has one story about a metal stamping plant that was flooded when a fire set off the sprinkler system. With LMTC's help, Wolfer was able to have the delicate electronics in the machinery dried out so fast that the shop only missed a shift and a half. Even the paper documents in the office were rescued.
