Fire: Documents With Water or Soot Damage

Salvaging, Drying and Cleaning Documents from a Fire

Even if your books, records, and other archives are not damaged or burned by fire, water damage from fighting a fire can be as devastating as a flood. All paper documents and magnetic media can just as easily be unintentionally soaked from firefighting, or soiled from soot and debris.

Wet Documents from Firefighting Can Be Salvaged

The same rules apply to wet documents and archives resulting from firefighting as from a natural flood. Proper and well-considered steps must be taken quickly to prepare all water-damaged materials for drying, cleaning and salvage.

Fire-Damaged Document Recovery Tip

Preparing for salvage and recovery of wet or soot-covered documents, books, records and archives can (and should) be addressed during the fire reclamation process. Otherwise, more damage can be done unintentionally.
