Why Choose SERVPRO Vacuum Freeze Drying

2/3/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO’s Vacuum Drying Chamber The Document Restoration Team used the same technique the Liberty of Congress used to dry water-damaged books

  • Vacuum Freeze drying is the most effective time way to salvage water-damaged documents. 
  • 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. 
  • The state of the art technology used by SERVPRO technicians is the only method approved by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the General Services Administration (GSA). 
  • Other methods such as dehumidification can alter the structure of the paper’s fibers causing them to become more brittle.
  • All employees of the Document Restoration Team are HIPAA Master certified. 
  • Once your items arrive at the SERVPRO facility, 24/7 video surveillance is guaranteed. 
  • Anyone entering the Drying Chamber Facility must sign in and out with their arrival and departure time.
  • Standard drying time is 7-10 days. Time frame varies based on moisture content and backlog. Call a member of the Document Restoration Team for current lead time.
