paper documents SERVPRO uses the same document restoration techniques as the Library of Congress!

Crack the riddle: What does SERVPRO and the library of congress have in common?

If you guessed document restoration techniques, you are correct!

When a business suffers from water damage, one of the main concerns is the loss of important documents. Water damaged paper can quickly deteriorate if not handled properly. SERVPRO’s team members are expertly trained and use the most advanced technology to recover your documents, and it just so happens that the library of congress uses the same techniques to recover damaged books!

One method that SERVPRO frequently uses in document restoration is the vacuum freeze-drying method. This process works by sublimation, which means turning a solid directly into a vapor, skipping over the liquid stage to avoid causing more water damage. This procedure can restore even the most fragile documents, such as photos, x-ray’s and business files. Another document restoration technique we use is called gamma irradiation. This procedure is used for cleaning and disinfecting documents. It is also used for decontaminating documents or other important items. In an instance where sewage or flood water has contaminated the documents, the papers are not only falling apart, but they are also full of hazardous bacteria. In this situation, decontamination is highly important. The gamma irradiation safely kills these bacteria and ensures that it won’t spread to other areas.

            Our Goal at SERVPRO is to make this process as hassle free as possible for our customers. If your commercial business is in need of document restoration, call the experts at SERVPRO!
