BELFOR San Francisco Home to the only Mobile Thermal Vacuum Freeze Dryer on the West Coast
BELFOR's SF bay area facility is home to a Mobile Thermal Vacuum Freeze Dryer -- the only one on the West Coast. Thermal Vacuum Freeze Drying is the leading technology for drying documents. TVFD applies heat while the paper is in a sub-zero vacuum environment. It is an extremely effective method of removing moisture from delicate paper.
BELFOR offers more types of document drying and disaster recovery services than any other restoration contractor. Using the most technically advanced processes and equipment, BELFOR can recover and restore virtually any type of document or vital record.
In a disaster situation, many tend to first think of the structural damage. However, the contents of buildings often present further, more significant losses in the form of valuable books, records and important papers that end up damaged by fire, flood or bacteria. In the case of water, deterioration begins as soon as moisture is absorbed into the paper and ruination can happen immediately or slowly over the course of years. Sometimes, a book may even feel dry, but without professional measuring equipment, you cannot accurately determine if it is still holding enough moisture to support mold and bacterial growth, or attract insects. Not long ago, damage usually resulted in the items being discarded or returned to use in an unsatisfactory condition where they continued to deteriorate and contaminate the workplace, library or home with mold, mildew, soot or odor. Today, BELFOR has developed the technology to restore important papers, books, files and documents including film and x-rays. We can now return these damaged articles to stable condition, restore their appearance and extend their useable life. However, the sooner our technicians begin, the sooner deterioration is halted, minimizing the need for restorative procedures.
