Document Drying Services
Choosing SERVPRO of Ottumwa/Oskaloosa is the right choice when you have contents affected by water, fire, or mold damage. We are able to help facilitate the right processes to return those important contents to you. One of the most important items to someone is vital records. Records, paper documents, can not be replaced. They are originals and we have a means to return them to you when you think that those lost soggy wet pieces of paper are lost after they have experienced a water or fire damage situation. We use a process called freeze drying to restore the documents. The freeze drying process puts the documents through a process of sublimation to remove the water from the document. The first step of the process is when our team comes in to help stablize the documents for shipping to the freeze drying chamber. This before and after picture shows the documents when they are first affected and when we prepare them for shipping. We box the documents inside new boxes. Inside the boxes the documents are put inside a thick plastic bag so the water doesn't penetrate through the new box. We document and prepare a contents inventory list for you of the affected documents for you so that nothing is misplaced during the process. It is all about the details. The reason to chose SERVPRO is we are prepared and have trained and certified staff ready to assist at a moments notice. You can depend on our team when you need us most.
