Documents Damaged by Water or Fire? Call SERVPRO

11/20/2020 (Permalink)

A pile of damaged documents and books Trust the pros at SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield to restore your important documents when they've been damaged by fire or water.

Think about what you would have to do after a fire or water emergency in your home or business: stop the damage from getting worse, evaluate the situation and make a plan to remediate the damage, remove the ruined items, repair or replace your damaged structure, inventory and clean your damaged possessions, work with your insurance company to cover the expenses, and then, finally, restore everything back into your structure. That’s a huge, specialized job—which SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield handles every single day for our customers.

Now, think about some of those damaged items: your important documents. These are not so easily replaced, which is why trusting SERVPRO’s experts to restore your salvageable papers is the best way to preserve these valuable items.

What Kind of Documents Need Restoration?

Homeowners often have lots of important papers stored in their houses:

  • Financial, legal and medical records
  • Correspondence
  • Personal papers, including priceless family items
  • Decades of photos
  • Books

Business owners keep important records and files at their facility:

  • Legal documents
  • Financial reports
  • Personnel records
  • Project-specific files

How SERVPRO Approaches Document Restoration

SERVPRO takes your damaged documents seriously—we know it’s not “just paper.” Our crew members have years of training and experience, and they use the latest technology and tools to restore these delicate objects.

Our sophisticated techniques include these state-of-the-art processes:

  • Gamma irradiation: documents that have been exposed to floodwaters, sewage, toxins or biohazards are treated to sterilize and remove pathogens.
  • Vacuum freeze-drying: water-damaged documents are restored with the same advanced technology used by the Library of Congress, the National Archives and Records Administration and the General Service Administration.

When we arrive at your home or business, we begin by evaluating and inventorying your documents. We remove the salvageable items to our secure facility in central Connecticut, where our crews restore the documents under round-the-clock video surveillance in accordance with HIPAA standards.

A SERVPRO Extra: Digital Copies of Your Documents

Once we’ve completed the document restoration, we offer to create digital versions of your papers. You gain these benefits:

  • Protection from future damage from fires and floods
  • 24/7 accessibility from anywhere
  • Easy, fast sharing with family and friends, or business associates and employees
  • Less need for storage space
