Water damage and floods bring with them a host of problems and concerns. Flooding from storms often means other major property damage, while plumbing failure can result from any number of expensive and frustrating issues—including broken water heaters and piping systems.
Add to that the threat of water damage to the home and the potential spread of mold, and it’s easy to understand how troublesome a flood can be. For many homeowners, however, one of the most frightening realities is having valuable books and documents destroyed from water damage.
If you’ve recently had a flood cause significant amounts of damage to vital documents or treasured books, call Allied Restoration Company right away at 425-458-5756. We can guide you through what needs to be done for our book recovery experts to restore them to their previous conditions.
What to Do If Your Important Documents and Loved Books Are Wrecked by Water Damage
Despite serious flooding or water damage, documents, books and photographs can often be saved. Many homeowners, however, are unaware of the ways to store or handle damaged documents until professional services are able to work on them.
Some homeowners even make the mistake of trying to solve the problem by using a hairdryer or by placing the documents outside to dry in the sun. Unfortunately, depending on how severe the damage was, this can end up permanently ruining the documents.
Dealing with wet paper is tricky. This is why it’s important to take the right first step and call a book drying specialist who can help determine what to do with the documents in the meantime. The right approach depends on the amount of damage and how long the paper has been exposed to water. Sometimes, even moving the books to a drier area can cause irreversible damage.
Book recovery services can effectively reverse water damage and restore documents, papers, photographs and books to their former conditions—often with no hint of any previous water exposure.
