Preparing Wet Books and Documents For Transport
It is essential to account for all of the wet archives to be restored. It must also be done very quickly and efficiently. Nevertheless, a salvage and recovery operation may not be successful if items are incorrectly labeled, organized out of order, or packed inappropriately. An orderly packout phase saves you time and headaches by insuring that all water-damaged records are handled properly during this critical process.
Salvaging and Transporting Water-Damaged Records
We will help you manage your disaster by creating a working inventory of your records at the time of the packout. However, every situation is different and we know how to adapt to changing circumstances. For example, an entirely different set of procedures apply to packout of books on shelves than to wet papers, file records, or magnetic media. Proper containers and meticulous attention to detail are required and our personnel are well acquainted with these procedures. They will apply them on-site to keep wet papers and books organized, as well as minimize further damage during transport.
