Document Vacuum Freeze Drying

If your documents, art, books, medical files, tax records or any other vital documents have gotten wet you will need to have them quickly processed by a professional restoration company. If you have not dealt with this issue before you will likely be doing research on the best companies and procedures. The main methods of drying documents are; air drying, desiccant drying, vacuum drying, thermal vacuum drying and vacuum freeze drying. Of all these methods vacuum freeze drying is by far the best. Although not required, wet documents are typically first frozen. Freezing the documents stabilizes them. It stops mold from growing, ink from running, papers from sticking together, rippling of paper etc. The frozen documents can then wait to be dried as long as necessary without sustaining any further damage. The documents are then placed in our vacuum freeze drying chamber, a vacuum is drawn and the ice on the documents starts to sublimate (go directly from a solid to a gas). The moisture vapor then is drawn to a condensing coil which re-freezes the moisture as ice on the coil. The documents stay frozen and stable while drying.
