After Transport: Freezing Wet Documents

Refrigeration of Water-Damaged Books, Documents and Archives

As wet books, documents, media and archives come off the truck, they are placed in assigned areas in cold storage. Our customized refrigeration systems are designed to freeze these materials at the most optimal temperatures to retard mold and mildew growth.

Storing and Refrigerating Wet Records and Archives

There are many services we can perform to restore water and smoke-damaged records. Once in cold storage, your wet records can safely remain there until important business decisions are made and the drying phase has begun.

Recovery and Restoration: Making Good Business Decisions

Depending on the type of records affected, the scope of the procedures to be followed, and the volume of materials to be processed, some recovery methods may be preferable over others. For example, it may be less expensive and time-consuming to photocopy documents onto fresh dry paper than attempt to clean and restore the original wet papers. Similarly, dried documents can be scanned and stored in electronic form instead of reconstituted as physical papers.

To find out more, call Document Reprocessors for assistance in making the best document restoration decisions for your business or institution.
