After the Flood: Preparing for Document Salvage
The aftermath of a flood is a heartbreaking and chaotic experience. Flood victims frequently assume that all water-soaked papers, books, blueprints, and other archives must be disposed of because they cannot be salvaged.

In fact virtually all of your records can be saved — if immediate action is taken for recovery. However, you must act quickly as harmful molds and other contamination can begin to form almost immediately.
