24 / 7 / 365 EMERGENCY RESPONSE
After a disaster, calling DFD first can mean the difference between recovering vital records cost effectively and losing critical information.
After a fire, it is critical to remove documents from the scene immediately to stop the remaining soot and smoke in the air from seeping further into the paper fibers. Cleaning and treatment should be performed immediately for best results.
Moisture and humidity create a two-fold attack on documents that can affect the viability of recovery. While water damage continues to destroy the physical state of the paper, the growth of mold, mildew and microbial elements can render the documents a health hazard.
In cases of mold, it’s critical to contact DFD to have affected documents moved and cleaned off-site to limit exposure to harmful environmental contaminants. DFD can restore documents without exposing them to harmful chemicals and without imparting radioactivity to treated documents.
