ServiceMaster Metropolitan’s Document Restoration Science

June 3rd, 2015 · No Comments

When a disaster strikes a home or business, one will first notice the big-picture damage: structural damage, wet basements, sewage, and damaged furniture. This view does not begin to capture the amount of real damage to the thousands of smaller items within a structure including heirlooms, valuable records, and documents. Think about how much value you place on these items, and how inconvenient or expensive it would be to lose them. Luckily, the experts at ServiceMaster Metropolitan have years of experience in document restoration.

Document recovery is an often-overlooked process, as many victims of storm damage or water damage assume that any documents exposed to the elements are lost or unrecoverable. This is simply not true. Don’t assume that damaged documents are unrecoverable! Our process of document recovery and content restoration is state-of-the-art:

  • First, documents are sorted by their respective levels of exposure and damage. Water damage can be simpler to fix than other issues, but even mold and sewage exposure can usually be resolved. Even non-paper documents, such as X-rays, compact discs, and digital media can be sorted for recovery in this step.
  • Second, moisture is removed from damaged documents. Since water damage can be ongoing, this is done as soon as possible and also helps limit damage from mold and bacteria. This is often done through an advanced form of industrial freeze-drying for heavily damaged documents.
  • Finally, chemical treatments may be added to permanently remove stains, mold spores, or bacteria.

Our freeze-drying process stops damage before it can continue, and is far beyond what home and business owners can expect to accomplish drying with fans and dehumidifiers alone. Don’t risk your important records and documents after a storm or flood. Call the experts in content restoration at ServiceMaster Metropolitan to ensure that you don’t overlook the little things. ServiceMaster Metropolitan provides document restoration services to Paramus, NJ, Hackensack, NJ, Upper East Side, NYC, and surrounding areas.
