Transport and Storage of Wet Records Prior to Recovery

Packing of Water-Damaged Documents

Some wet materials (such as paper files, audio and video tapes, books, etc) are comparatively small and can be uniformly packaged and stored for transport without difficulty. Other materials, however, may require special handling. These include such items as rare books, blueprints, drawings, maps, microfilm, microfiche, X-ray film, photographs, negatives, aperture cards, computer disks, and many other types of records.

Proper Packing of Wet Archives Helps Insure Recovery

Each type of media is packaged appropriately in our customized containers, and each container is carefully labeled prior to shipment. Taking these steps helps to insure the highest possible degree of success when it is time to unpack and begin the freeze-drying, cleaning, and recovery procedures.

Follow Instructions for Pre-Packing

Mold and mildew are the enemies. When you initially contact Document Reprocessors we may give you instructions for pre-Packing and freezing certain wet items or water-damaged materials. You may also elect to ship items directly to us for processing at our facilities. Follow instructions carefully to help insure that water-soaked or fire-damaged records and media will not deteriorate in the interim.
