Frequently Asked Questions

+ What should I do first if my contents, documents, or papers are flooded?

The first step is identifying all of the items you need to have restored. Make a list for your restoration company that includes every single paper document, electronic device, and item they should include in their scope of work. If document drying and contents restoration can’t be done immediately, Cotton GDS can freeze your documents. By freezing your documents, you can stop them from producing mold, sticking to one another, and bleeding through. This process is helpful if you need to focus on restoring your commercial structure first, before documents and contents.

+ How likely is it that my business documents, papers, or other contents can be restored if they are damaged by water?

If the documents are handled properly, dealt with in a timely manner, and professionally placed in a vacuum freeze dryer, the likelihood of documents being restored is high.

+ What should I do if I see mold growth on my wet documents or contents?

If you see mold growth on any wet documents, paper, or contents, you should try to isolate the contents as soon as possible. If the volume of growth is extensive, it may be easier to isolate the room instead and call a professional restoration team like Cotton GDS to mitigate the damages.
