Document Drying

Document Drying

For document drying in Monterey, Salinas, Santa Cruz and surrounding areas, contact Disaster Kleenup Specialists. Paper documents in your home or business are particularly vulnerable to disasters and can be damaged by water from flooding or from the water used to fight a fire.

While wet papers can never be fully restored to the original quality, the proper document drying and document recovery processes can save the materials with enough quality that they can be copied or partially restored. Proper drying also helps to prevent additional damage such as mold.

Restore Your Damaged Documents

Disaster Kleenup Specialists provides damage control in a wide variety of situations. Document recovery requires prompt action to prevent further deterioration of the paper records. Paper products such as books, blueprints and financial records can all be dried but prompt action is critical.

Document drying involves several steps. The paper documents are dried prior to a disinfection process. Disinfecting is critical especially if the papers have been damaged by contaminated water. The documents can be organized or simply boxed and returned to the company for sorting. The same processes can also help recover film passed documents such as microfilm, x-rays or other forms of media. Give us a call for more information on the types of documents that can be dried and recovered.

Digital Copies

Document drying can result in brittle paper with smudged or smeared ink. The recovery process may also result in a disruption of the filing system or document organization. Some businesses may choose to scan the documents at this time. This converts the image of the document to a digital format that can be stored in multiple computer drives for safety. This can also prevent any further deterioration of the original documents.

Complete Drying Services

Few situations are going to result in only water damage to a business’s documents. Disaster Kleenup Specialists offers complete water removal from flooded basements and other areas in addition to the document recovery services. We also provide all the cleaning services, repairs and specialty services necessary to restore the business to normal operations.

Prompt removal of water from the building as well as from documents is critical to the prevention of mold and mildew. Mold growth can pose health problems if left unchecked and often forces the removal of contaminated material.
