Document Drying After Commercial Water Damage In Dallas

A law firm or real estate broker can risk potentially expensive losses to both their property and hard copy documents should a water issue get out of control. Document losses can harm previously good client relations or result in the loss of valuable information. Our commercial restorers can help to recover certain documents that have been damaged, following a split pipe or leaking roof in your offices. Drying documents is an expensive and time-consuming process but can be extremely valuable in certain scenarios.

Customers that need specialized document drying after commercial water damage in Dallas can reach out to us and arrange dispatch of a specialized commercial restorer unit. As a property manager, you can communicate with a SERVPRO crew chief during the inventorying and packing out stage as well as prioritize those that are most valuable and those that can be discarded. It is essential to understand that existing damages to documents cannot be reversed; however, valuable documents can be prevented from being lost using advanced drying techniques, including sublimation.

Sublimation is a process of turning a solid into a vapor without moving through the liquid state. There are many considerations, including the time frame, what type of contamination levels the document has been exposed to, as well as how long it has been exposed to moisture. The methods used to remediate documents are expensive so that a SERVPRO restorer can explain to you the costs and time frames for each document and each method. It is up to you to decide whether the value of saving the document is worth.

One of the first steps to remediating documentation is to freeze them. Freezing slows the process of dilapidation and allows a SERVPRO restore to determine the best course of action for each document. Vacuum thermal-drying, Air-drying, Vacuum freeze-drying, and dehumidification are all useful methods for remediating documents that may be irreplaceable or cause significant harm to your business if lost.

Hard copy documents are not easy to remediate. Contact SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887 for expert handling from start to finish.
