How does it work?

SERVPRO of Westminster team, along with the help of the Document Restoration team if necessary, will inventory the documents at the site of the loss, pack them up, then ship them to SERVPRO Corporate. In some cases, cold storage or refrigerated trucks may be needed, but the Document Restoration team will advise and assist where necessary. Once documents arrive, the boxes will be inventoried, placed in cold storage if necessary, and the drying process will begin.

The Document Restoration Team uses sublimation—turning a solid directly into a vapor, skipping the liquid stage to avoid causing more damage to the documents. This process can recover even the most delicate items—from documents to photographs and x-rays, to entire business archives. Depending on the type of job, documents can also be decontaminated, cleaned, deodorized, and even digitized. 



The Document Restoration Team will go through each box page by page to wipe down and remove dirt, soot, or other contaminants. 
There are 3 levels of cleaning based on the type of soiling, and how heavy it is. 


Many times documents that have been affected will hold residual smells of contaminants, or mildew, and should be deodorized before being returned to your client.

With the new age of technology, digitizing records and documents has become a standard practice in most industries. This eliminates the need to have massive file storage rooms and allows us to access records at the click of a button. If your customer's file room was damaged by water or smoke and needs to be cleaned, dried or decontaminated, digitizing might be a good choice to eliminate the need to have hundreds or even thousands of documents and records in their storage.
