We were impressed with its performance

My first opportunity working with Steve Donboch and Drymatic was a particularly challenging job. The customer had tile floors in a bathroom where a toilet had been leaking under the crawlspace for a considerable amount of time, causing some wood rot on a floor joist.

They lived in a nice home and were very persistent in finding a drying solution that would allow them to keep their tile floors without needing any demo from inside the home. We were challenged because the crawlspace door was so small that our normal heat drying equipment could not fit. Luckily, Steve had just been by our office explaining some benefits of his system and how they had used it to dry a similar situation where the tile was left in place.

I gave him a call and he offered to meet me at the jobsite. Steve brought out his low profile Drymatic boosts which fit easily into the crawlspace, and using the mats, we were able to put the heat exactly where it was needed. Inside the home we put a pedestal mat around the toilet which kept the heat on the floor in an awkward space other drying equipment can sometimes be challenged with. The flexible mat system was easy to work with and less cumbersome than the hard plastic mats we normally use.

The subfloor beneath the tile was successfully dried, to the great relief of the homeowner, without the need for removing any materials inside the home. Overall, it is a versatile system that has many benefits over other heat drying systems and we were impressed with its performance.

Great innovations from the team at DBK

We have been using the heat drying equipment from DBK for the past 15 months. Trial and error has been a large part of the learning along with the course DBK Australia with Garry Carroll provided. Success is measured in the materials and ability of drying different and more challaging situations. Great innovations from the team at DBK and have no problems recommending if you are getting into restoration.


Got the chance to utilise and test out the Drymatic Heat Drying Australia system with the help of Garry Carroll over the last week in the aid to save a clients wood floor.

In only 6 days, the WME has gone from 25.3% back to dry standard @ 9.1%. The owner is over the moon as their tenant has been displaced for only 7 days from calling us, to their tenant shifting back in.

Saved them quite a bit of money as their insurance only covered rehousing the tenant for the equivalent of 2 days due to being under insured. Will be adding more of these to my arsenal shortly.


Drymatic Heat Drying equipment has been a fantastic addition to our business. Being able to offer more specialised drying sets us apart from other businesses in our area. Not only that the staff love its ease of use and the customers love how quickly, quietly and effectively the products operate. I Would highly recommend implementing to anyone serious about restoration.


Garry has helped me more than any other supplier has. During water damage jobs he has conducted video calls to assist me in setting up the equipment. I cannot fault his after sales service and the equipment he sells is innovative and very effective. So much so I have stopped buying LGR dehumidifiers in favour of Drymatic heat drying equipment as it is so much more effective. Thanks Garry.


If you haven't gotten on board yet I suggest it's time you do.

Have attended a couple training courses with Garry and Upon completion I was highly satisfied that I got the information that I went there for. The thing I really liked is that I was able to do the training I wanted to do with out being told I had to do this and that other course as prerequisite. Garry's no "BS" approach to teaching and the fountain of knowledge would be an asset to anyone in the industry. As for the heat drying equipment and training, if you haven't gotten on board yet I suggest it's time you do. Garry will show you how to grow a better and more profitable business!

Many thanks to Garry and the team :)


There are instances where the drying of a water affected floor should be considered. This is particularly so when water damage is localised and with higher value floors, where there can be difficulty in matching the appearance of new flooring to the existing.

In early 2012, we completed the installation & finishing of 120 sqm of T & G Red Iron Bark over ply.

Within a week the floor was flooded from an extreme rain event. Garry Carroll was onsite with Drymatic, Drymatic Boost boxes & Drymatic Mats, the site looked like a sci-fi movie. The floor was successfully dried then sanded & polished.

Since then I have lost count of how many timber floors that have been saved and refinished and are still in service, which is the greatest testimonial for Drymatic Equipment.

Since 2012 I have been using equipment supplied by Garry Carroll to restore water damaged timber floors. We have restored Red Iron Bark, Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, Brushbox, to name a few of the popular ones. We have restored all the popular timber flooring species installed directly to concrete, over ply, over chipboard and on battens. Including parquetry and even trowel glued engineered over concrete. If the floor has been installed to a high standard using quality products Drymatic equipment can save it when disaster strikes.

Drymatic Equipment, hated by timber merchants. Loved by Floor sanders Drymatic Equipment, restorations made easy.

Not all flood damaged floors need to be removed.
I have sanded & polished many Hardwood floors saved by drying equipment.
The latest Drymatic equipment & training makes restoration fast, efficient and easy.
