The Benefits of Commercial Electric Dryers in the Summer

No matter where you are in the U.S., most people tend to enjoy the summer's longer daytimes, cloudless skies and glorious sunshine much more than the chilly winter temperatures. Chances are, although it's wintertime now, you probably can't wait for the warmer weather to return next summer. You could be a parent who looks forward to spending time with your young children in the backyard or local park. You could be a teen who enjoys hanging out with friends. You could be a fan of hiking when the sun slowly sets or someone who loves playing lots of different sports in the fresh air. Regardless of what you do with your free time this summer, a hot climate combined with physical activity will, naturally, make you and your feet sweat.

This is where residential, commercial and industrial electric dryers as well as portable and wall mounted air dryers save the day. These days, with high-quality sports shoes costing a lot of money, it is always a shame when expensive footwear bites the dust due to cracking or warping. Shoes, boots and sneakers that are made from rubber, leather, felt, or other fabrics can gradually weaken over time, and the glue holding the shoes together can deteriorate and become unstuck. The main cause of material corrosion is due to everyday wear and tear plus sweat that ultimately ends up making your shoes unwearable.

Combining energy-efficient designs and state-of-the-art technology, each model of electric dryer meticulously cleans clothing and footwear, ensuring that your gear has a long shelf life for many years to come. Electric shoe and boot dryers eliminate perspiration, which helps to minimize painful skin irritations that cause blisters and sores. Harmful contaminants like mold or mildew that decrease the lifespan of your footwear and encourage odor-causing bacteria are also eradicated by electric dryers.

Excess moisture can create the malodorous bacteria and harmful fungus that causes health problems such as fungal infections, painful skin rashes, and other pesky physical irritations. Many types of fungi and bacteria can be found in sweat-soaked sports clothing and athletic gear, including, but not limited to:

  • Staph infections often begin with tender skin areas that slowly turn into painful boils
  • Streptococcus Faecalis is usually associated with contact with fecal matter
  • Staphylococcus Aureus can lead to pimples and other skin complaints
  • Athlete's Foot is a contagious fungal infection that develops between the toes before spreading via clothing and flooring

An electric dryer slowly circulates warm air through the inner area of the shoe or boot, drying all of the material in a safe and controlled way. As with most eco-conscious electric dryers, the air never gets too hot, which means that there is no damage to the footwear's interior or exterior as it dries. In addition to electric boot and shoe dryer products, Williams Direct Dryers also specializes in electric clothes and glove dryers. Residential and commercial boot dryers can be safely installed in many different places, including basements, attics and garages at home, as well as dryers for mud rooms, ski lodges, and the mining and oil industries.
