Water Damage Restoration: Structural Drying
The immediate damage of a flood can be very destructive, but what comes after can be just as dire.
Even before a flood, mold spores are everywhere, just waiting for the right amount of moisture to infect your home or business and the air within it. These spores can grow quickly in a structure that is not properly dried. If you don’t act fast, you could soon have mold and mildew growing everywhere.
Mold and mildew can damage everything in your home or office, including the structure itself, your furnishings, your health and that of everyone else who shares the space. Even if you can’t see mold, you will eventually smell it and be affected by it, because it can grow under floors, in walls and in your HVAC system. From itchy eyes to serious allergic reactions, asthma attacks and even permanent lung damage, mold is one of the worst results of water being left behind after a flood.
If you have water damage as the result of a broken pipe, water heater or other liquid-filled appliance, or even water used to extinguish a fire, your structure and everything in it are at risk of becoming unsalvageable from both the liquid itself and its after-effects.

Water Damage Repair: Document Restoration
Many organizations such as law firms, accounting firms, government agencies and healthcare providers rely heavily on paper files. Anything that jeopardizes the integrity of these files jeopardizes the business. And nothing poses a greater threat than water from a leaky roof, a flood, a broken pipe or a fire hose. Of course, books in libraries are also at risk, and so too are files and books kept at home by residents.
The Situation Calls for Immediate Action
If your documents are affected by water damage, you have little time to act before they are ruined. Pages can stick together forever, type can fade, dirt can stain the paper and mildew and mold can set in within 48 hours.
Your first response is probably to try to save the documents yourself. You first need to move the documents to dryer ground. However, they are fragile when wet, and moving them is a delicate process that must be done correctly to prevent further damage. Drying them yourself is a potential problem, too. If you use a hair dryer, you could cause your documents to dry too fast and buckle.
However, the danger is not just in the loss of your documents. If water is still present, live electrical wires can put you at risk. In cases of water containing sewage, documents are potentially contaminated by harmful bacteria and viruses, making them hazardous for you to handle. If they are not properly cleaned before drying, the contaminates will lie dormant but remain present on the documents.
Let the Professionals Save Your Damaged Documents
As part of our water damage repair services, we offer to professionally restore your valuable damaged documents and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our staff is professionally trained in all aspects of document restoration, and our proven process for restoring files and books includes:
- Safely removing the items from the wet area;
- Decontaminating the items, if necessary;
- Air drying, if possible; and
- Deep freezing and vacuum drying the items to extract the water as a vapor.
To avoid buckling the document or book pages, the freeze-drying process may take several weeks, with constant monitoring and assessing. If you call us soon enough after water damage occurs, we can rescue and restore most documents to a usable condition.
