We Dry Docs is the undisputed leader in the recovery of water and smoke damaged maps, papers, books, documents, and other archives.
While every document recovery situation differs greatly it is a safe bet that you should refrain from moving the wet documents unless you know how to do so properly. Moving and trying to treat wet and damage articles can lead to disintegration. Knowing the proper steps to handle a situation like this is crucial in recovering all of the articles successfully.
We use Thermaline to prevent warping and distortion as we remove the water content from your documents. Thermaline is a freeze-drying process that utilizes a vacuum in order to restrain books. This process keeps books in their natural shape, meaning that the covers will not warped. This means that you will be able to put your books back onto their shelves with no additional restoration.
