Commercial Lyophilization!! What Is That? Ask SERVPRO to Salvage Your Business Records for Your Wilmington Firm SERVPRO Saves Water Damaged Documents for Wilmington Business Owners

Restoring Your Valuable Documents during Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Wilmington

If you are running a business and it accidentally experiences a water loss incident, there is a need to be concerned. You should never take chances if there were books and other documents in the office. We can analyze the situation and determine the most suitable method for drying your items. It is critical to continuously communicate with the owner since we need to act and make decisions quickly to prevent further damage. Though it is hard to restore books to their earlier state, we can help your Wilmington business from entirely losing valuable documents.
 
Commercial water damage restoration services in Wilmington aim to protect your records from further damage and make them as whole as possible. The five common methods that our SERVPRO technicians use to dry documents include vacuum thermal-drying, vacuum freeze-drying, freezer drying, and air-drying. There are specific considerations we look at when selecting an appropriate drying method. They include the document’s value, the source of water, the degree of damage, exposure time, and the available personnel and equipment.
 
When we are drying the document, we rely on a method known as sublimation - a technique by which solids change into vapor form without undergoing through the liquid state. To achieve that, we first place the documents in a freezer. Freezing stops further damage and gives our SERVPRO time to determine the best restoration procedure. Lyophilization, the process of freezing, and creating a vacuum for rapid extraction, can be successful under certain conditions. We always advise our clients to have digital backups of relevant records.
 
If there is a need to remove some documents from the building during the restoration process, we take an inventory - which means none of your items can get misplaced and lost. During this stage, the customer identifies the most critical documents to dry. Restoring documents is so sensitive, and owners are advised to act as quickly as they can to limit chances of mold growth. In the case of contaminated water from flooding, there are few options for salvaging the paper items.
