After a fire, cleaning and treatment should be performed immediately for best results. 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. Our team of document technicians often work closely with professional restoration contractors to remediate the fire damage in your office, library, school or home.
Moisture and humidity create a two-fold attack on paper and archive records. Water damage continues to destroy the physical state of the paper, and the mold, mildew and bacteria can render the documents a health hazard to the team restoring them. To stop the damage to your paper documents, you must act quickly and transport the books to a safe moisture-free location.
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.
