Document Drying and Cleaning

Appropriate cleaning methods for documents is largely dependent on the source of the damage. In the event of a flood, we use state-of-the-art vacuum freezing technology to save wet documents. This process involves placing the damaged materials into a special chamber that has a high-pressure vacuum until the moisture in the documents sublimates. When documents are damaged by fire or mold, they can often be cleaned and restored. Depending on the damage, sometimes the most sensible thing to do is disinfect dry the documents so photocopies can be made. Once the photocopies are made, the originals can be stored safely away until they are no longer needed. Fire damage can result in partially burnt documents that can be remediated by removing the burnt parts of the paper allowing for a useable document. No matter the source, we will assess the damage, create a comprehensive inventory, and safely transfer and store valuable documents for complete restoration and remediation. With 24/7 emergency service available and an expert crew committed to excellence, you can rest assured your valuable and irreplaceable documents are in the best possible hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

CORE by KHI Restoration is the trusted name in restoration in Cypress, TX. Our IICRC certified technicians follow industry-standard procedures for quality you can count on. We offer 24-hour emergency service and can work directly with your insurance provider to make the process as easy as possible for you.

Insurance coverage is very situationally dependent. Each policy from each different company will have different levels and types of coverage. The best way to know if your damage is covered is to keep a copy of your policy on hand and call your agent directly with any questions you might have.

As a homeowner, seeing your home damaged is extremely stressful and it’s difficult to know the right course of action. Will trying to clean up on your own help or just make things worse? No matter what kind of damage you’ve incurred, the very first thing you should do is take photographs as long as the area is safe for you to be in. If you have water damage, the best thing to do is extract as much standing water as you possibly can while you wait for help. If you have fans, set them to start drying things as much as possible. They won’t be enough to completely dry the area, but they can help to minimize the chance of secondary damages. In the event of mold or fire, it’s best to just leave the damage alone until a professional can address it. Disturbed mold can disperse spores throughout the home and fire damages can be made worse if improper cleaning techniques are used.

The length of time for proper restoration to occur is dependent on the type and size of the damage. A typical water damage project usually takes 5-7 days for drying and removal of any unsalvageable materials. Mold remediation can take anywhere from a few hours to several days depending on the extent of the damage. Fires cause the most extensive damage and can take weeks for restoration to be completed. Keep in mind, these are all estimates and they’re only for the restoration portion of the job. The rebuilding portion of the job, where everything is put back into place, has its own separate process and timeline.

Most homeowner’s policies cover most water damages, but not all water damages are created equal. There can be a lot of exceptions to coverage depending on the intricacies of your policy. This is why it’s a good idea to be familiar with your policy and call your agent right away when damage occurs.

A good portion of water damage can be prevented by proper household maintenance. Routine plumbing maintenance as well as sump pump and appliance maintenance are effective ways to avoid preventable damages. If you live in a cold climate, preparing your home for the winter can also help avoid damage. Finally, it’s a good idea to regularly check the exterior of your home, particularly your roof, for damage to ensure water isn’t unexpectedly leaking into your home.
