Wet Books Can Be Salvaged, Dried, Straightened and Recovered
It can be heartbreaking to see books damaged by water. Books are the repositories of knowledge, collections of our greatest thoughts and ideas, meant to stand the test of time. Until recently, most of these would have been beyond salvage, or at best, they would be warped, stuck together, and unusable after drying.
How to Salvage and Restore Wet Books
Document Reprocessor's revolutionary Thermaline® process dries books and prevents them from warping and distorting as water is removed. The process compresses books back into their natural shapes, minimizing cover board warping. An exclusive process patented by Document Reprocessors, Thermaline is very reliable and allows most books to be returned directly to shelves with no additional restoration required.
