BELFOR Saves Library Funds And Books
When a storm flooded the Central School Library in Escondido, nearly 2,000 books, both hardcover and paperback, were damaged in the Spanish language section. Two BELFOR California offices coordinated efforts, and using state-of-the-art techniques were able to cost-effectively save all but 45. BELFOR San Diego supervised the site work, including packing the library’s volumes, and BELFOR San Francisco processed the books. The replacement value of the hardbacks would have been approximately $20 each, and paperbacks would have been nearly $10. BELFOR San Diego estimated a cost of $2.50 each for vacuum freeze-drying -- a significant savings.
