Water damage is the most common kind of damage in archives.
OTHER KINDS OF DAMAGE
Fires are rare, but all the more devastating. However, the right reactions and techniques make it possible to save objects that were believed lost. A major problem in such events is that the fire-fighting agents and water used to extinguish a fire will also damage holdings.
In every fire, pollutants are produced that form deposits on the surface of objects. In addition to the unclean water used to fight fire, this harmful fire residue – ash, soot and smoke particles – present a danger to people, materials and the environment. Last but not least is the acrid smell that clings to materials. Fire-damaged objects are extremely fragile, and every unprofessional intervention will leave its traces. At docusave, we recover and treat these objects with our proven systems and technical expertise.
