Courtesy alert for blower recall
by David Rios, Assistant Director of Technical Services
September 10, 2020
Keep your eyes open. The Consumer Products Safety Commission has issued a recall for blowers manufactured by Interex due to a potential fire hazard. Recalled blowers include those sold by B-Air, BlueDri, BlueDri Pro, and Soleaire. These blowers will most commonly be found in the water restoration industry. If the outlet on the affected blower becomes overloaded or short-circuited, it could overheat, posing a fire hazard.
GreenTech Heat does not manufacture or sell any blowers or fans affected by this safety recall.
While some of the affected blowers appear similar to the GreenTech Heat AM4000, none of our air movers are affected by the issue where the utility outlets on the side of the blowers are not protected by a circuit breaker. The GreenTech Heat AM4000 does not provide a second power outlet to eliminate the possibility of excessive power draw, tripping jobsite breakers, and overheating. We have designed our equipment to safely and reliably run in the temperatures found in heat treatments.
We present this notice in the interest of everyone’s safety. Many companies mix, match, and mingle equipment from a number of vendors, and may unknowingly have some of these blowers in their equipment mix. Additional information can be found at the CPSC website.
Need some powerful air movers? Give us a call today. Our AM4000 moves more air and continues working at higher temperatures than the competition.
GreenTech Heat technology is also 100% effective for bed bugs, cockroaches, termites, and all other insects. GreenTech Heat equipment allows you to self-treat with heat on your schedule and as your needs demand. Our certified training lets you do it right and do it safely the first time. Heat safely kills insects and bacteria, viruses, and mold everywhere they may be found in a single one-day treatment. Call us at 888-699-3944 or visit the online store to get started with heat today.
What People Say
Heat does not have many limitations with respect to the number of items treated and the area to be treated. There are no chemical residues to consider and, compared to gas fumigation of areas, margins for safety are considerably greater.
