What It Is

The drying process is completed by restoration specialists who are trained in proper recovery techniques for both papers and photographs. The steps involved include the following:

  1. Drying - This is completed with a modern vacuum freeze-drying method, used by the Library of Congress to save important documents.
  2. Disinfection - This is accomplished through gamma radiation that helps to eliminate viruses, bacteria or other harmful contaminants.
  3. Digitizing services - These special services allow you to preserve documents in a digital form, where they can no longer be harmed by natural disasters or fires.

SERVPRO’s freeze-dry document restoration process is the only one that is approved by both the General Services Administration (GSA) and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The company’s state-of-the-art facilities and highly trained technicians combine to ensure that each document is preserved and restored as thoroughly as possible.

  • Books
  • Negatives
  • Magazines
  • Manuscripts
  • Maps
  • Parchment
  • Microfiche
  • Films
  • X-rays
  • Blueprints

There are very few limits on what kinds of homeowner documents can be dried and restored using the freeze-dry and decontamination process.
