Home and business owners whose valuable financial and medical records, business records, books, paper heirlooms and other paper artwork and memorabilia have been damaged by water can benefit by hiring professional experts experienced at restoring wet documents using a state of the art vacuum freeze drying process. Following flooding due to broken pipes and plumbing systems or water damage that occurs due to storms or the aftermath of fire-fighting efforts, important paper documents and books can be restored in many cases to almost original condition thanks to freeze drying methods.
The freeze drying process uses four different components in order to remove the water from valuable paper documents, keepsakes and publications that have become damaged through exposure to water or moisture. Each document, book or paper memorabilia is first frozen solid. This helps to lock the structure of the paper item securely in place so that the item can ultimately be restored to its original shape. This also enables the wet documents to be stored for an indefinite amount of time in order to determine the best course of action for restoring them to their original condition without damaging their shape, contents or form. A condensing surface colder than -40 Centigrade is then utilized in order to draw out the vapor from the paper document or other product that is being dried for restoration. A very low pressure vacuum pump is then applied to the previously wet documents that need restoration in a chamber that is completely devoid of any air content. The use of very low pressures is necessary to complete the freeze drying restoration process. Lastly, a heat source provided using lights or coils helps aid in the release of any water that is bound up in the product. Restoration specialists first place the paper materials which have been kept in a frozen state of suspension into a special chamber to begin the freeze drying process. The chamber is an enclosed capsule that has been connected to both a condenser and a vacuum pump. The vacuum pump begins to lower the pressure inside the chamber to such a low level that the moisture locked inside the frozen wet documents is vaporized and collected on the condenser. After a set amount of time, heat is then applied to the documents to complete the restoration process by driving out any remaining moisture or water.
The freeze drying process for restoring wet documents is one of the most effective state of the art restoration methods to salvage paper products exposed to moisture or water following fire fighting efforts, storm flooding or plumbing damage. In the hands of a restoration expert, the freeze drying process can restore valuable as well as irreplaceable wet documents as close to their original condition as possible. It is a much more effective method than simply vacuum drying wet documents, a method that does not prevent ink runs, mold growth and other staining. The document restoration experts are available on a round the clock basis to respond to emergency requests for restoring wet documents using a freeze drying process that assures the best results.
