Each year disasters strike across the globe affecting millions


of people hurricanes tornadoes floods and terrorist attacks.


Not only create damage to those in their path, but can affect


Millions more by damaging critical information being stored


for the future.


Today's technological advancements have continued to shape


how damaged media books and documents are salvaged and stored


to prevent loss of important information Document re processors


leads the industry with Advanced record recovery techniques


which are now being made available to you today with security


health and safety at the Forefront of today's issues security


measures have been taken to secure customer information while


in our custody to be in compliance with government and legal


request. It is critical to maintain a proper chain of custody


from time of receipt through return delivery of Stored material


customized software RFID capable has been implemented to


track cartons through each restoration process.


I document re processors every carton that's been damaged


goes through the same careful process its contents are vacuum


freeze-dried to extract all moisture and then fumigated to


kill bacteria at this point.


Your carton is ready to begin restoration which starts with


three b's and ends with an R to put the files you need back


in your hands documentry processors will help you define


the exact contents decide what to do with them destroying.


isn't needed and reproduce What is restoration begins with


defining what materials in each carton should be reproduced


or destroyed carton contents are defined in detail, which


includes Department type of document date ranges and series


carton information is entered into a spreadsheet.


So important decisions can be made some decisions about your


documents are yours to make a loan While others are defined


by the government or industry standards in the end decisions.


Made identifying what should be reproduced or destroyed once


customers identify.


What is to be destroyed destruction takes place upon receipt


of written approval documents identified for reproduction


are stored for six months following Imaging and return delivery


of the data cartons identified for reproduction are ready


to go through a six-step process including inventory separation


of paper surface cleaning.


Document Preparation Imaging and quality control digital


reproduction is now recognized by most archived professionals


as permanent retention hardcopy reproduction is favored by


those who need physical documents such as historical materials.


In order for your cartons of reproduced documents to be complete


and useful a level to Recon inventory is necessary information


obtained during a level 2.


Recon inventory is used to define an electronic index for


each folder or label.


Once the inventory is complete.


Your carton is ready for separation of paper prior to the


cleaning phase documents off times require manual separation


of paper page by Page due to ticking caused by glues and


adhesives commonly used in business materials.


This process can take up to two hours pending level of sticking


and rigidity of paper left behind by the flood water, even


though all contents of your cartons have been dried and sterilized


paper is porous and contains contaminants that need to be


surface clean to reduce bulk contamination on paper surfaces


during the cleaning phase surface contamination that would


affect. Quality or damaged Imaging equipment is removed a


typical cart with 1.2 cubic feet 30 folders and 2,000 Pages


takes a minimum of three hours to clean a typical carton


contains approximately 2,600 square feet of surface area


the equivalent to cleaning the same surface area as 5 10


by 10 square foot offices all cleaning prepping and imaging


is conducted in laminar flow.


Hoods each hood draws away contaminants from the workers


and returns HEPA filtered air to the work environment at


the completion of the cleaning phase cartons are then ready


to be prepped for Imaging.


during prep for Imaging staples are removed Pages detached


and separated documents removed from binders and jackets


and tears repaired stapled groups of pages are marked to


track what pages need to be re stapled back together following


the reproduction phase prep for Imaging typically averages


and other three hours per carton before it's ready for Imaging


your carton is scanned using high capacity scanners modified


to usable by tonal 300 DPI images that comply with state


requirements modifications have been made to equipment to


scan damaged wrinkled documents use of flatbed scanners are


often used on heavily damaged paper.


All scanned images are stored on a secure server that is


not connected to the internet complying with government and


Industry practices scanning usually takes another three hours


before the carton is ready for a final image check State


archives scanning requirements dictate that each image be


manually checked against the original 100% of your images


are quality check side by side.


Each image is check for contrast Leo.


And completeness for files being returned digital originals


are compared against the digital image to ensure 100% capture


of all information.


This usually takes another three hours per carton, then after


approximately one hour of duplex Printing and two to three


hours of stapling collating punching labeling and final review.


Your carton is completely restored.


Tracking of Labor images and materials used is critical to


properly account for time tracking and expenses incurred


throughout the entire restoration process control logs are


used on a daily basis to assist in directing working supervisors


as to where each carton is in the process.


Actual units processed are compiled and imported directly


into billing to generate status reports and project tracking.


So what would you rather have back after a flood your original


carton full of contamination that smells and may not be safe


to handle or a clean odor free carton safe to use with all


documents fully accounted for and ready to use in the future


information is the lifeblood of organizations and affects


how people live their lives.


by partnering with documentry processors today's decisions


Will shape a stronger tomorrow?
