Rapid Response Requires Attention to Detail

Once the materials have been inventoried, the actual packout of water-soaked archives can begin. Our main goal is to get your documents stabilized to avoid further damage. A speedy removal from the site is imperative.

Tip: Maintain Document Quality Even When Wet

Mold and mildew can seriously degrade your documents and impair the recovery process. Depending on climactic conditions, mold and mildew can begin growing on wet paper within 24-48 hours. Portable fans can help keep the air moving in areas where wet documents and books are stored. This can increase the time before damaging mold and mildew start to forms. Call Document Reprocessors before this happens.
