Document Restoration Services

Our passion is the business of storing and protecting company documents.  We take careful measures to ensure stored items are safe from moisture, heat and other damaging elements they may otherwise encounter when not stored and monitored properly. If damaged documents are brought to us, we can assist with their restoration.

Restoration of Water Damaged Documents

The most common case of document damage results from water. From damp to waterlogged, the condition of a document can be improved if caught quickly enough. In the case of drying documents, there are two methods recommended. For books, a specialized freeze-drying chamber is used.  For documents, a desiccant air-dry distribution system is preferred.  If volume or security of the documents is an issue, an air-dry room can been set up on customer premises. Both solutions halt the mold growth, ink migration and page adhesion.

Restoration of Fire Damaged Documents

The second most common case of document damage results from fire. Fire creates both visible and non-visible damage to hard copy documents and electronic media. In this instance, restoration crews are sent onsite to help with the cleanup at the earliest possible time.

With the help of partnered contractors, Kent Records is equipped to quickly respond to any size project, in any location.  Our trusted partners have been contracted by the FBI, Pentagon, universities, museums and corporate archives. In case of emergency, helping hands are not far away.

"Thank you for providing such great customer service. Our documents are very sensitive and I never have to worry about them getting into the wrong hands. Today (a courier) picked up my shred container. He was polite, professional and got the job done quickly. He was also very thorough in making sure that my documents were locked and secure as he took them from our storage to the truck. I was very impressed with his service."
