Document Restoration

A variety of processes can be executed to restore water and fire damaged materials. Removal of surface dirt, mold or mildew and soot, deodorizing to remove smoke odors and the trimming of text block are the simplest methods of restoration. However, one of the most effective techniques is that of vacuum freeze-drying. This process provides mechanical straigntening of the book during drying in order to reduce the need for rebinding.

Some books and bound documents may require even more sophisticated techniques to remove acidity and other contaminants or caustic bindery material.
