Destruction of Documents SERVPRO Properly Disposes of your Documents

Has your residence or business been a victim of a sewage or storm or flood water situation? Has your file room been damaged by water or smoke? Does your business or government organization need to properly destroy sensitive documents?

If so, you're in luck! SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City has excellent cleaning restoration services as well as certified destruction services for your important documents.

For damaged documents, we offer the following services:

In order to recover and restore your important documents, our Document Restoration Team uses Vacuum Freeze Drying, a process in which an item containing moisture is frozen and dried using vacuums and pressures to achieve a miraculous process called “sublimation”. It is the most efficient and effective way to salvage your water damaged documents.

To restore your documents to original condition, we also subject them to an onsite cleaning. This involves cleaning each document from front to back to remove any debris or surface particulate.

In a sewage or flood water situation, your documents are not only deteriorating but are also infected with many types of bacteria. In most storm situations you are dealing with this problem so most of the affected documents that you will encounter will be contaminated. If this is the case, then decontamination is always a must.

You might wonder how exactly we are able to disinfect and decontaminate documents or other consumer goods. To do this, SERVPRO uses Gamma Irridation. High-energy photons are emitted from an isotope source (Cobalt 60) producing ionization (electron disruptions) throughout a product.

In living cells, these disruptions result in damage to the DNA and other cellular structures. These photon-induced changes at the molecular level cause the death of the organism or render the organism incapable of reproduction. The gamma process does not create residuals or impart radioactivity in processed products.

Once paper has been wet, an odor can begin to form. Letting us deodorize your documents will reduce the odor, and, in some cases, almost completely eliminate it.

For certified destruction of documents:
We offer destruction onsite. Many businesses and government agencies have to dispose of counterfeit, faulty, expired, or contaminated materials. All entities need to be certain that their products and materials are properly destroyed.

The guarantee of certified destruction is to protect one’s liabilities, brand image, or proprietary information. We guarantee certified destruction to give you peace of mind that your documents are disposed of properly.

Other Services:

Digitizing documents makes them easier to access as well as easier to store. We use state-of-the-art equipment to turn your paper copy into a digital file.

With the new age of technology, digitizing records and documents has become a standard practice in most industries. This eliminates the need to have massive file storage rooms and allows us to access records at the click of a button.

If your file room was damaged by water or smoke or needs to be cleaned, dried, or decontaminated, digitizing might be a good choice in eliminating the need to have hundreds or even thousands of documents and records in storage.

So, just as SERVOPRO of Dyersburg/Union City specializes in the cleanup and restoration of commercial and residential property after a water, fire, or storm damage event, we also specialize in restoring, storing, and destroying your documents. From initial and ongoing training at SERVPRO’s corporate training facility to regular IICRC-industry certification, rest assured our highly trained staff is equipped with the knowledge to restore your property AND documents. Call us today at 731-627-6251 and let us make the damage look "Like it never even happened."
