Book Restoration and Cleaning

Restoring and Reconstituting Books After Drying

Although our freeze drying techniques work very well with books, every type of document damage is different. Consequently, we apply many different cleaning and restoration methods to produce the best possible results. Our staff is well-trained and knowledgable, and our specialized substance-removal and cleaning systems are the best available — anywhere.
