Water destroys office and ruins paperwork.
SERVPRO saves paperwork with Sublimation
Sublimation: A process in which a substance is converted directly from a solid to a gas or from a gas to a solid without an intermediate liquid phase.
Drying Process – Sublimation:
i. The direct conversion of a solid (Ice) into a gas (water vapor), without passage through a liquid stage.
ii. Take Dry Ice for example. Dry ice is made of Carbon Dioxide, not water. When dry ice is exposed to normal atmospheric conditions it begins to sublimate, it turns directly from its solid stage into its gaseous stage bypassing the liquid stage.
iii. Vacuum Freeze Drying is the only method that is approved by NARA (National Archives and Records Administration) and the GSA (General Services Administration).
