Shrink-Wrapping: Protecting Water-Soaked Materials

Keeping Wet Archives Organized and Protected During Transport

The palletized boxes of wet materials are shrink-wrapped prior to shipment. This essential step helps eliminate further contamination and reduces the possibility of further physical damage. It also preserves the organizational integrity of different types and groups of water-soaked materials prior to commencing the recovery process at our facilities.

Eliminating Contamination and Minimizing Further Damage

By organizing materials in this manner, we are able to keep different types of materials segregated for different treatments, as well as maintain inventory order upon arrival at our facility for cleaning, drying, recovery, reconstitution, duplication, and/or other steps that may need to be taken. This policy helps insure a successful wet document salvage and recovery operation.

Proper Handling of Wet Materials Yields Best Recovery

Although we will take every possible precaution to insure your valuable archives are protected and transported safely, there are always unforeseen contingencies.
