Why HOW Restoration?

Why HOW?

We are a local company with plenty of experience. Following Hurricane Sandy, owner Jason Hartley helped with damage restoration at hospitals, schools, and commercial & residential properties along the coast.

Unlike some other nationally franchised restoration companies, HOW Restoration provides reconstruction & storage services so you can work with one company for the entire clean up and restoration process.

Document Drying

freeze dryingDuring a fire or flood emergency, there may be some important or sentimental documents you’d like to recover. In a commercial property, there may be a great deal of documents requiring salvaging. Luckily, HOW Restoration can handle document recovery in addition to tending to your water damage repairs. We offer this essential service to both residential and commercial clients.

There are several options to dry and restore your documents. These include:

  1. Air Drying – This method is self-explanatory and best suitable for slightly damp documents.
  2. Dehumidification – Dehumidifiers not only remove moisture from the air, but they can be very effective in removing moisture from items.
  3. Freezer Drying – Used for moderately wet books and documents, the items are frozen using a self-defrosting blast freezer. This method can take a few weeks to months.
  4. Vacuum Freeze Drying – This is a great technique for restoring books and photos. However, this needs to be done by a professional to avoid warping the photos.
  5. Vacuum Thermal Drying – A method best used for books either wet or frozen. The materials are placed in to a chamber and vacuumed and introduced to heat.

If you believe that you have salvageable documents after your water emergency, don’t hesitate to call HOW Restoration. We’ll take care of your documents while resolving your water damage and working with your insurance company. We even specialize in general contracting for reconstruction to streamline the process even further.
