Document and Media Recovery
When a catastrophe such as fire or flooding occurs, certain items are more at risk than others. Books, legal documents, valuable papers such as historical documents and other archival material, along with X-rays and microfilm, are often irreplaceable and require expert handling to enable the best possible restoration.
Wet fibres in papers can fuse together if dried incorrectly. Steamatic methodology uses the superior process of vacuum freeze-drying to immediately halt deterioration and prevent mould or fungal growth, and then return items to a usable state.
Steamatic boasts the largest freeze-drying facility in the southern hemisphere and has carried out the restoration of valuable council and government documents, along with important items owned by private individuals and corporations.
