Important documents should be stored in a manner which prevents their destruction. However, even a carefully selected facility fitted with relevant security measures may become insufficient for specific calamities, such as burst plumbing, fire-fighting activities involving the use of fire-extinguishing liquids or flooding. This is when time is of the essence to be able to restore the valuable information.
Rhenus Data Office Polska helps in specific emergencies by quick-freezing any flooded documents to remove the moisture by sublimation. The freezing process also stops the associated biological, chemical and mechanical damages, with the dry documents being later subjected to gamma radiation to ensure documents are free from dangerous microorganisms which affect the further storage of dried documents.
