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?
