Document Restoration

Documents, whether personal or proprietary, are some of the most delicate of materials to handle during damage restoration. Document Restoration encompasses the recovery of medical (such as laboratory records or x-rays), legal (such as client/attorney agreements), historical (such as museum displays or library texts), and photographic type records and documents.

All HIPPA and confidentiality laws are followed, and every damaged object will be treated as irreplaceable.
