EMERGENCY! Document Salvage Steps Following a Flood, Fire or Other Disaster
You've experienced a disaster and your books, documents and other materials are soaked. You're not sure what to do next. Take a deep breath, we're here to help you! To insure the most responsible and prudent action, follow these steps immediately after a disaster:
Flood Aftermath Book and Document Preservation
Leave wet documents where they are unless they are in imminent danger of further damage. Every document recovery situation is different. You can actually cause more damage by moving wet papers, which can disintegrate unless handled by professionals. Knowing what to do and how to store wet documents is crucial to successfully recovering them. We can assist you by phone or on-site in dealing with the immediate aftermath and insuring your papers, books, photographs and other materials are protected and made ready for drying and recovery.
Respond Quickly to Recover Wet Documents
Whether it's water damage as a result of fighting a fire or the aftermath of a flood, the result is inevitably a feeling of helplessness. Document Reprocessors is prepared to help you recover from disaster.
However, you must act quickly! Time is of the essence and there is none to lose. Mold can begin to form almost immediately. You must take steps to prevent and mitigate further damage.
Our emergency response teams can be on site very quickly, and we can make the necessary arrangements to prepare, pack out and transport your materials and/or deal with them on-site as required. But, we cannot help you if you don't call! DO NOT DELAY!
