Document Recovery & Restoration

If important documents are exposed to water, Core’s document restoration specialists use desiccant drying, vacuum-freeze dryers, thermal vacuum-freeze dryers and molecular sieves specifically designed to restore books, documents and paper materials. Often, after drying is completed, no further restoration is required. If there was a fire or if there is leftover damage from smoke, Core’s paper recovery process would include state-of-the-art cleaning processes such as particulate removal sponges, ionized air washing and a variety of deodorization techniques.
