Cleaning and Restoration Methods

There are no "one-size-fits-all" solutions here and every situation is different. We apply the restoration techniques best suited to the nature of the damage sustained. The degree of recovery after removal of water and freeze drying, the physical condition of the materials, and the business decisions made all have a bearing on the selected document cleaning and restoration methods and procedures.

Applying the Most Appropriate Solutions

Depending on the type and extent of damage, some cleaning and 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.

Every type of recovered document imposes different considerations for reconstitution. Good choices made here can pay big dividends further down the road. To find out more, call Document Reprocessors for assistance in making the best document restoration decisions for your business or institution.
